LIVE WEBINAR | Leveraging Next-Generation Tools for Enterprise-Level Data Set Creation | Wednesday, October 26th, 2pm ET
Healthcare institutions house vast amounts of imaging data that can fuel valuable collaborations with researchers and commercial entities; however, it takes considerable resources and lead time to create these data sets and share them in compliant and efficient ways. Dr. Peter McCaffrey at the University of Texas Medical Branch has implemented a platform for streamlining the creation of both radiology and pathology data sets, enabling more efficient collaborations both inside and outside the UT system. As a result, grant and publication timelines are accelerated, grant applications are more successful, and the health system’s data is being used in innovative new models.
