Why Provider Imaging Strategies Are Being Shaken Up
-- KLAS reveals the impact of PACS and VNA technology on imaging strategies at RSNA 2013 --

    OREM, UT, December 01, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- As providers continue to image enable EMRs, they are taking a much closer look at their PACS vendors' functionality and enterprise archive strategies that will eliminate storage silos and improve interoperability. As part of two separate studies-- PACS Technology 2013: New Versions Stepping Up? and Image Archive 2013: Finding Out What Is in Store for VNA--KLAS interviewed healthcare providers to discover how these imaging platforms are changing and impacting the market.

"As more healthcare organizations consolidate, PACS replacements are a natural occurrence," said Ben Brown, report author and research director at KLAS. "Many health systems are also considering broader enterprise imaging strategies as they analyze the impacts VNAs can have on patient care, storage efficiency, and image and clinical content management."

The PACS report focuses on new versions, which of those versions have actually resulted in improvements, the impact of recent technology and adoptability. The VNA report discusses interoperability, scalability, and the ROI of the different solutions.
