Broken Email

Dear all,

It was highlighted to me that emails going to PACSAdminDay.com has been bouncing back (that is a problem I kept having with BulkRegister.com for years (Their email forwarding breaks down every other day and their tech support is as good ask talking to a rock).

I’ve resetting the relevant settings and hopefully the emails can start coming in.
So please do send in your celebration stories, photos etc. to webmaster@pacsAdminDay.com



You thought we forgot didn’t you

Ramblings: 2010 in review (By WordPress)

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

Crunchy numbers

A helper monkey made this abstract painting, inspired by your stats.

A Boeing 747-400 passenger jet can hold 416 passengers. This blog was viewed about 2,800 times in 2010. That’s about 7 full 747s.

In 2010, there were 2 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 16 posts. There were 3 pictures uploaded, taking up a total of 395kb.

The busiest day of the year was August 27th with 580 views. The most popular post that day was PACSAdmin What?.

Where did they come from?

The top referring sites in 2010 were linkedin.com, binaryhealthcare.wordpress.com, play.scavengrnet.com, obama-scandal-exposed.co.cc, and facebook.com.

Some visitors came searching, mostly for pacs administrator day, pacs admin day, fireworks clipart, pacs administrator appreciation day, and pacsadminday.com.

Attractions in 2010

These are the posts and pages that got the most views in 2010.

  1. PACSAdmin What? April 2009
  2. Ambassadors April 2009
  3. ClubPACS May 2009
  4. About April 2009
  5. Partners April 2009

The day came, we celebrated and got back to work recharged, fulfilled and motivated (at least for me 🙂 )

Terry Vandehei received an e-card from his co-workers in IT (I want an e-card too!)

Bruno Bellotto, Shailendrakumar Jariwala, Eugene Pakman and David Brown send their congrats (on other portals, others left their messages here directly). I know a couple of guys had mini celebration parties last year (Michael Lunsford included) so I’m waiting to hear if there are any this year.

Edit: Matt Granger (our Ambassador from California, USA) was ‘bestowed with offerings’ of  cake and a greeting card from the hospital he worked for and most importantly, his request to upgrade all  PACS hardware was approved! (read more here).

This web portal received over 600 unique visits on the 27th August 2010, again we received no corporate assistance from any major medical imaging equipment or solution provider etc, it’s all community driven (although I think we were a little laid back  this year)

For me, I happen to had a little gathering and we took photos (I uploaded a couple of them here).

Just an F.Y.I. This photo has ‘representatives’ from 3 different imaging informatics solution providers. If you have a celebration photo, send it to us at  webmaster @ pacsadminday.com

Please do mark your calendars for the 26th August 2011 for the third  annual International PACS Administrator Appreciation Day :)

Note: International PACS Administrator Appreciation Day is for PACS Administrators (be it a radiologic technologist, an IT professional, a Biomedical Engineer, a Nurse or even Radiologists)  from around the world, and also all those involved in the support and management of medical imaging informatics (regardless of clinical discipline, solution providers).
