Rawson discusses “The Facebook Effect on Radiology” at Radiological Society meeting

Radiology is at the center of the majority of healthcare decisions, driving the timely detection and accurate diagnosis and treatment of disease at its earliest stages. As health organizations continue to move toward value-based care, they need intelligent solutions to meet the challenges they face in improving outcomes, lowering cost of healthcare delivery and enhancing patient satisfaction.

Philips is delivering innovative digital imaging systems combined with intelligent informatics for decision support, and several of these projects are being piloted right here at Augusta University as part of the 15-year alliance between AU Health and Philips.

At this year’s Radiological Society of North America conference in Chicago, Philips experts and guest speakers are delivering brief sessions highlighting the role, impact and evolution of radiology, including:

“The Facebook Effect on Radiology: How digital health, connected care and social media will impact you, your patients and your specialty.” This educational session features Royal Philips CEO Frans van Houten and Dr. James Rawson, Chair of the Department of Radiology & Imaging at the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University.
