Thats right ladies and gentlemen,
‘So You Want To Be a PACS Administrator” is officially published!
However, it is not released for sale yet.. the reason? Well I just order the first copy of the book for proof-reading purchases so for the eager readers, please bear with me for a little longer, I will release the book for sale once everything checkout ‘ok’.
In the meantime, allow me to share a review by Mr Phil Robson, a fellow friend and industry expert (those working in the medical informatics scene in ASEAN and Middle East would know him).
“With the publishing of “So You Want To Be a PACS Administrator” Adam has added to his already large volume of published material in the field of Imaging Informatics through binaryhealthcare.com, amongst other sources.
Adam’s book covers all aspects of procurement, implementation and ongoing management and maintenance of a PACS system. It is written in a style that will engage and interest readers across the range of interest and experience levels.
It will serve as an invaluable reference source to experienced RIS and PACS Administrators, Radiographers, Healthcare IT professionals, students and other healthcare professionals.
Of particular interest to me, as an ex-Radiographer was the Chapter on Applied Imaging Informatics. This chapter clearly explains, in non technical terms, the seemingly complex DICOM arena.
The sections related to future proofing any PACS purchase, and ensuring Vendor or PACS neutrality for an institution’s Image Data are of particular relevance as many facilities are entering into second generation PACS replacements for Radiology, or extending Imaging Archives into other clinical specialties.
Let us hope that PACS Administrators, in time, are fully recognized for their expertise in their chosen profession. That day has been brought closer with the publishing of this book”
