After several years of burning and printing, there may be hesitation to transition from what works, to a new, cloud-based PACS solution. However, the industry has continued its rapid transition to value-based reimbursement, which drives the demand for cost efficient solutions allowing optimized clinical and patient outcomes.
In the U.S. for example, health information exchange is now being mandated by the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). HHS realizes the populous benefits of switching to a HIPPA compliant cloud PACS solution, and are reimbursing practices for doing so.
What exactly are the benefits of adopting a cloud based PACS solution?
1. Cost Reduction:
Cloud based PACS allows patient files to automatically and securely stream to the cloud as they are created. Streamlining the medical imaging process can eliminate more than $40,000 per year spent on on-site hardware, infrastructure, storage, updates, and maintenance. In addition to eliminating more than $5,175 spent on printing and burning.
Increasing demand for physicians’ time creates a need for convenience and flexibility, especially when reviewing patient studies. In the past, this meant being stuck in office after hours. Using a cloud PACS solution allows patient information to be accessed from anywhere, anytime, and on any device.
Cloud PACS is a tool that has the power to connect the dots between physicians and patients instantly to provide better, more timely care. With a simple click, collaborate with specialists and capture remote referral opportunities, or text or email a patient their medical imaging records at the end of their visit.
Unlike onsite hardware infrastructure, you can eliminate costly support, and easily scale your cloud PACS to manage your ever-growing collection of medical images.
