Mitchell Goldburgh and Dawn Cram join the team to discuss the details of the Data Standards Evaluation Workgroup that has been formed through the HIMSS-SIIM Enterprise Imaging Community.  This initiative is working to develop a Standards Scoring Model and leverage the scoring model to evaluate existing standards related to Body Part and/or Anatomic Region nomenclature, disseminating such findings to the Community in a neutral and evidentiary-based method.


HIMSS-SIIM Questionnaire on Terminology

Your participation in this short survey will help shape recommendations to industry and clinical care bodies on how body part and anatomic region is encoded in imaging data and supported in the systems you use for clinical care.

  • All clinicians who take an image, interpret images or review images
    • Images include all clinical photos, clinical multimedia, scope video, waveforms, visible-light modalities, DICOM modalities, etc.
  • Any clinical informatics professional
