Workflow. Efficiency. The terms are bounced around every day in healthcare. But when it comes to the productivity and profitability of your radiologists and the department as a whole, the right PACS makes all the difference. Getting comfortable with a system can literally cost you hundreds of thousands, if not more.
How Rad Groups are Joining Forces to Fortify Business: By collaborating instead of competing, radiology groups can leverage the power of their combined resources and data to speak with one voice and proactively build upon their ability to deliver the best possible service and care in their communities, all while remaining independent.
With digital radiology, PACS and RIS in use for 15 years or more at most US hospitals, a disparate system architecture is now the reality for most departments. Multiple PACS and mini-PACS populate the environment, resulting in inefficiencies, increased operating costs, and reduced throughput for departments.
The disparate system architecture existing in most radiology departments today has resulted from the addition of multiple, dedicated workstations and mini-PACS to the environment without adequate integration into the workflow.
