“ILM” stands for information lifecycle management, but in healthcare, it could stand for image lifecycle management. It’s a data retention efficiency tool that’s used to manage an imaging study over its lifespan. ILM involves moving older imaging studies to a cheaper tier of storage to keep the cost of managing the studies as low as possible.
