The annual IT Informatics Summit seeks to bring together policy makers, industry partners, consumers and providers to advance imaging informatics.
The College is actively engaged in standards activities that help advance the field of medical imaging. In addition to a long history of helping shepherd DICOM, the ACR is actively engaged in supporting IHE, HL7 and a variety of other important standards activities.
The ACR Appropriateness Criteria® are evidence-based guidelines to assist referring physicians and other providers in making the most appropriate imaging or treatment decision for a specific clinical condition.
With the emergence of health IT as a critical component of the nation’s health care reform activities, the ACR has taken an active role advocating on behalf of radiology on topics related to imaging IT and informatics.
