The Medical Technology Management Institute (MTMI), a leading provider of medical imaging continuing education, has announced a new partnership with Lifetrack Medical Systems to improve its best-in-class PACS Administrator Course, allowing students to prepare for the Certified Imaging Informatics Professional (CIIP) certification exam while gaining hands-on experience working with the latest medical imaging distribution software, according to a news release.
Students will work with LifeSys patented, an advanced configuration engine that allows information system administrators to manage and customize the desired radiology workflow across multiple facilities in one unified worklist, including automated DICOM routing. Leveraging this partnership allows MTMI’s onsite and remote learners to access a cloud-based enterprise PACS environment to learn the complex skill sets and competencies needed to deploy, troubleshoot, manage and maintain radiology and enterprise informatics, the release states.
“We are committed to ensuring our students have the ability to access complex skills training to move up in their careers and help fill the in-demand roles during this unprecedented demand for health workers,” said MTMI President Jay Mazurowski. “This new partnership with Lifetrack allows students to become proficient PACS administrators, ensuring health care providers have streamlined distribution of medical images between physicians, patients and other caregivers.”
“Using this hands-on training and distribution platform benefits patients by ensuring their information is getting to the correct people in a timely manner” said Heidi Stuplin, director of operations at Lifetrack. “Skilled PACS administrators can minimize system downtime to ensure timely distribution of electronic health information.”
MTMI’s PACS administrator course also helps prepare students for the Certified Imaging Informatics Professional (CIIP) certification exam. Major topics include: a comprehensive guide to DICOM and HL7, teleradiology, PACS architecture, integrating the health care enterprise and electronic medical records. In addition, the release says that students will gain insights to the cutting-edge imaging informatics platform integrated into this cloud-based format.
“PACS management and healthcare informatics require specific knowledge and skills unique to this technology. This partnership with Lifetrack will ensure informatics professionals have access to the most advanced training,” the release concludes.
