Barrington, IL, United States, 2010/05/19 - GE Healthcare Centricity® Imaging User Summit promises best-practice-sharing opportunities, roundtable discussions with GE leadership and product teams, and educational sessions. NYSE: GE
At a time when many in the industry are cutting costs by eliminating or scaling back user groups and associated meetings, GE Healthcare is announcing its intention to further its commitment by hosting another customer-focused, imaging user summit connected to the sector’s most well-attended annual conference.
Scheduled for Tuesday, June 1, at the Minneapolis Hilton, the GE Healthcare Centricity® Imaging User Summit promises best-practice-sharing opportunities, roundtable discussions with GE leadership and product teams, and educational sessions all aimed at helping attendees make an immediate impact on improving workflow and productivity within their organizations. Aligned with the 2010 annual meeting of the Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM), the one-day event is complimentary and all Centricity customers are welcome to attend.
“Our loyal customers have, by extension, built our products through their invaluable input,” said Don Woodlock, vice president and general manager of GE Healthcare IT. “In many ways, hosting our imaging user summit is among the most crucial parts of our business plan. While we’re giving our users the tools to help them succeed, they’re giving us a constant stream of feedback that is equally vital.”
Following the GE Healthcare Centricity Imaging User Summit, the three SIIM-affiliated Centricity user groups will be meeting in full-day sessions to further explore their specific areas of interest. The product-specific sessions, all held on Wednesday, June 2, include meetings of:
• CRISS (Centricity RIS-IC user group)
• DIAMOND (Centricity PACS-IW user group)
• EXCITE (Centricity PACS user group)
Registration and information for the Centricity Imaging User Summit and all user group meetings is available by visiting gehealthcare.com/.
