RBMA is Pleased to Announce a New Sponsorship Agreement with AMICAS, Inc.
FAIRFAX, VA — May 28, 2009 — The Radiology Business Management Association (RBMA) recently entered into an agreement with AMICAS, Inc. to sponsor a keynote lecture series beginning in 2010 through 2012. This special program will bring a high-quality, well-known speaker to the Radiology Summit each year for three years.
According to a recent member needs assessment conducted by RBMA, members rate attending meetings and conferences as one of the top RBMA membership benefits. These educational events offer members valuable classroom education as well as peer-to-peer learning opportunities. As healthcare challenges have intensified, the need for accurate, pertinent, and timelier industry information has only increased. By accessing recognized leaders in healthcare, business, government and sectors outside of radiology, RBMA is seeking to expand members’ experiences and knowledge beyond the scope of their current radii.
To accomplish these goals, RBMA sought out a partner who is aligned with its mission; who shared the association’s vision for growth, sustenance and viability; and who was willing to develop a high-level educational keynote lecture series at the RBMA Radiology Summit. A trusted source and a company who has a vision and pulse on the industry, AMICAS, Inc. agreed to sponsor this new program.
AMICAS, Inc., is a second-year Platinum Sponsor with RBMA and a long-time supporter. They are a leader in imaging IT solutions. AMICAS offers the industry's most comprehensive suite of image and information management solutions – from radiology PACS to cardiology PACS, from radiology information systems to cardiovascular information systems, from revenue cycle management solutions to enterprise content management tools designed to power the imaging component of the electronic medical record. AMICAS provides a complete, end-to-end solution for radiology practices, imaging centers, and ambulatory care facilities. Hospitals and integrated delivery networks are provided with a comprehensive image management solution for cardiology and radiology that supports EMR strategies to enhance clinical, operational, and administrative functions.
RBMA will work with AMICAS, Inc. to select relevant speakers who will entice and boost conference attendance; that will assist RBMA in supporting its central theme of the strategic plan: “Growth, Engagement and Value…centered in Trust.”
Announcement of the keynote lecture series will be made at the RBMA 2009 Radiology Summit, June 7-10, 2009, in Orlando, Florida. The first speaker of the keynote lecture series will appear at the RBMA 2010 Radiology Summit, May 24, 2010, in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
