Sure, having the ability to share and access medical images anytime, anywhere is a great feature to have in your Cloud PACS infrastructure. It allows you the flexibility to not have to be at your desktop to view your images. But have you put much consideration into having mobile unlimited access to your medical images? What if you could access your patient’s records on any device, anytime, anywhere? What if these images were diagnostically approved?
Technology is fallible, and while it has come a long way in the medical industry - it’s still not perfect. Any surgeon knows that “going in blind” is never step one. However, no one can predict when a local PACS will crash, internet service will be down, or even if the power will go out. If you happen to be in surgery, unless if you have the physical films present, you are taking a great risk. Don’t be caught without a roadmap to your operation. Here’s an idea for a backup solution for such a predicament.
