    VNAs must push medical imaging technology boundaries

    This issue of SearchHealthIT's Pulse zeroes in on vendor neutral archives -- a distinctive, medical imaging technology in healthcare designed to allow providers to view images in a standard format.

    The market for medical imaging management is huge -- possibly worth almost $6 billion by 2021, and in order to grab their share, vendors must adapt and enhance their products. Our cover story explores the state of the vendor neutral archive (VNA) market and looks at how one children's hospital envisions the future use of its medical imaging technology system.

    Following up on that notion comes a 2017 wish list, in which three health IT experts explain what future VNA features they'd like to see. A standards-based approach tops that list. Elsewhere in Pulse, a Gartner analyst helps us debunk some of the myths behind the use of blockchain in healthcare, and find out what steps personal health record vendors need to take for a more successful foray into patient engagement.

  • Dedicated CISO job still open to debate

    Almost 20 years after Citicorp decided to hire an executive-level security position dedicated to protecting its banking business, the responsibilities of the CISO job are still unclear to many business executives and open to discussion. Why do some companies still need convincing?

    As threats and infrastructure evolve at a fast pace, chief information security officers have to remain proactive in the face of ongoing digitization and globalization. In this issue of Information Security magazine, we look at the role's elevation and influence on broader security and risk management initiatives. Most importantly, we highlight accomplishments of dedicated chief security officers from different industries -- entertainment, financial services, healthcare, retail and technology -- and get their views on challenges in the CISO job and changes ahead.

    "The CISO has evolved from a technical security role to that of a corporate executive with a risk management focus," says Tim Callahan, senior vice president of global security and CISO at Aflac.

    Strategic security is an increasing responsibility of the CISO job. A growing number of security officers have implemented a threat intelligence capability to help steer the technical aspects of their security program.
