Dear Healthcare Informatics Insider,

Do you know how "wired" your hospital is compared with others in Europe? If so, you likely have consulted HIMSS Analytics Europe, the source of the most comprehensive database of what hospitals in Europe have accomplished in healthcare IT.

This week, on the eve of the organization's second anniversary, spoke with managing director Uwe Buddrus to learn about what's been achieved and to inquire about HIT trends. Explore the world of HIMSS Analytics Europe by clicking here.

Speaking of HIMSS Analytics Europe, find out which hospital in Spain received accolades from the organization for achieving an all-electronic HIT environment by traveling here.

The ability of IT to improve healthcare for current and especially future generations of Europeans was promenaded in Copenhagen last month, when the Danish capital hosted the World of Health IT and eHealth Week 2012 conferences. These meetings demonstrated the importance of sharing information so that everyone can benefit from innovation and experiences.

Contributing writer Finn Snyder was on hand and reports on Norway's e-health initiative here. We also think you'll find our coverage of a session on interoperability for cloud computing and mobile health equally of interest.

Don't overlook Dr. Neelam Dugar's most recent guest column. In her latest contribution, Dugar discusses the role of PACS in recording radiation dose from imaging exams, a hot topic of concern and interest throughout the world.

Finally, you'll want to read senior editor Erik L. Ridley's report on what's happening in France with RĂ©gion Sans Film, a cloud-based RIS, PACS, and archiving project in the greater Paris area. Click here to get the details.
