AuntMinnie.com rolled out the virtual red carpet on October 25, announcing the winners of the 2017 Minnies. The awards, which celebrate the best ideas and brightest minds in radiology, recognized numerous contributions that are advancing a future shaped by augmented radiology. IBM Watson Health is proud to have been recognized for our work in this field, taking home the award for Best New Radiology Software for IBM Watson Imaging Clinical Review.
The first cognitive solution from Watson Health's medical imaging business, IBM Watson Imaging Clinical Review, is generally available to healthcare providers as of today. We at Merge are proud to have collaborated on this innovative new solution and are excited to be among the first organizations to bring it to market for healthcare provider organizations.
Given the constant drive to innovate, time moves pretty fast in the medical imaging industry. It should come as no surprise then that the annual Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference, HIMSS17
, is here once again. Held this year from February 20-22 in Orlando, Fla., HIMSS is the largest health IT conference in North America, with 43,000 people and 1,200 exhibitors expected to attend. We at Merge are excited to be back at HIMSS as the show provides a great opportunity for us to connect with our valued clients, forge new business relationships, and shine a spotlight on how Merge solutions address some of the most prevalent and pressing challenges in health IT.
