Ideal Approach to Radiology IT

The rumors of PACS death have been greatly exaggerated. PACS has been, and still is, very much the hub of the radiology department. Radiology continues to be the early adopter of technology in most hospitals. Efficiency is key.

Many trends have emerged over time – some have faded quickly while others have take hold and had a long-lasting impact. One of the latest is the notion of Deconstructed PACS which at its core is a best-of-breed approach. So in essence, use different solutions (PACS, VNA, Viewers) from multiple vendors than go with a single-source vendor approach. There’s been a lot of buzz about this new model but is it one that will be applied across the industry or is it ideal for a specific type of healthcare institution?
