Many veterinary practices rely on a PACS, or picture archiving and communication system, to store and manage their veterinary images. However, did you know that the capabilities of a PACS goes well beyond that? Indeed, you can now leverage your PACS solution to enable immediate sharing, access, and mobility with your veterinary images. By having these critical factors readily available to you, you can finally share your studies with other veterinarians, and even pet parents with a single click!
Are you ready to take the next step and move to the Cloud? -That’s great! It may be time for an update from your local onsite PACS solution, or perhaps you’re ready to move past using your desktop viewer (like Horos or OsiriX) as your stand alone solution. Either way, we’re here to help. As with any relationship, constant and clear communication is a critical factor to ensure an optimal relationship where you get the most out of your Cloud PACS vendor. It will make your entire transition that much easier....The following are 4 important things to keep in mind during this process.
Let’s face it, everyone wants to save money! It doesn’t matter if you are a physician, a hospital administrator, a lawyer - everyone, even your next door neighbor is trying to find a way to save. The healthcare industry is as such that with reimbursements being pinched, looking at your checkbook can become an overwhelming feeling. As a result of trying to be more economical, we all fall into the trap of becoming hesitant to invest in what is required to truly become more efficient in our businesses. For a physician, it might feel safer to gravitate towards the low-cost desktop medical imaging viewer, or perhaps free open source software that runs that on your PC. In fact, you might even want to store your images there. While we applaud your initiative, we have some suggestions on where you can save money.
