Barco is ALL IN

It also hosted a roundtable discussion of medical experts, who discussed changes and innovations over the past six months. Attendees were then able to choose from numerous breakout sessions where they were introduced to the latest updates in technology, including two new advancements from Barco.
Keynote Speaker - Dr. Srini Tridandapani, PhD, MD, MBA

He completed his presentation by outlining the tools and pathways to succeed in the new now through the categories of Engineering, Financial, and Human factors.
Healthcare Round Table
Attendees of the ALL IN Healthcare Virtual Event were treated to a healthcare round table moderated by Mike Sklar, Barco VP Healthcare Sales for the Americas. The panel discussed a number of pre-determined questions and then responded to inquiries provided by attendees. The panel included:
Dr. Srini Tridandapani, Phd. MD, MBA
Professor of Radiology and Vice Chair for Imaging Informatics at University of Alabama at Birmingham
Thomas A. Capone, CEO, NYDLA
New York Distance Learning Association services 46% of the $1.3T education market for technology-based learning systems

Dr, Sabag is the Chief Radiologist for Sabbag Radiologost and Clinica Porto Azul and Clinical Caribe
Dr. Daly B. Avendaño MD, EBBI

The panel covered a number of topics but focused quite directly on the emergence of telehealth throughout the coronavirus epidemic. Mr. Capone pointed out: “During pre-COVID-19, the world was changing anyway. The pandemic amplified and put everything into a time compressor. The great promise of telemedicine is coming to fruition. Now it seems that “distance education” has really just become “education.” And “e-Commerce” has become just “commerce,” and “telemedicine” is just “medicine” now.”
The interactive breakout sessions were an opportunity for attendees to learn firsthand on updated Barco enterprise healthcare solutions as well as ask direct questions to technology experts. The topics fell into two categories. There was Healthcare Enterprise Visualization, which covered Diagnostic Displays, Meeting and Clinical Collaboration, and Surgical Integration. Additionally, there was Imaging, which included Home Reading, QAWeb Enterprise and What’s New in Barco. During the What’s New in Barco Breakout, Attendees were introduced to:
Demetra – A all-in-one skin imaging platform that will change the future of dermatology and dermascopy.
Synergi – A workflow and collaboration platform for Tumor Boards and other multi-disciplinary team meetings.
Healthcare and the New NowIn the ever-changing landscape of healthcare, frontline workers not only have to adapt the way they treat patients, but also the way they work with, and communicate with one another in order to effectively navigate the “new now” and stay healthy. Barco is committed to helping our healthcare partners navigate these waters and create new solutions based on the way they want to work. We will also continue to find new ways to communicate frontline insights and successful strategies from healthcare institutions, as well as safety, workflow, and financial guidance from industry experts. After all, we’re ALL IN this together.
