Next-Generation PACS Platform: A New Path to Better Care

2:30pm - 3:30pm Wednesday, March 11
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W204A

Description

The rapid advancement in imaging technologies enforces the value of diagnostic imaging as a vital contributor to improving the quality of care. However, the rapid growth in imaging procedures and image volume is causing strains on most existing traditional PACS systems. Many providers still struggle with multiple PACS and information systems where radiologists spend significant time locating images and documentation, switching between systems and dealing with overall slowness that causes delay in turnaround time and impacts effective patient care, not to mention staff frustrations and lost productivity. That’s how it was at Mercy, a 40-plus hospital system across four states. Learn how adapting a new approach to modernize the cross enterprise PACS platform helped increase efficiency between 30 and 50% and turnaround time by 50%. You can simplify the complex process to turn your next PACS project into measurable success and use this IT imperative to enable new healthcare’s strategies. Shop Women's Sneakers by Brand
