Healthcare Groups Embrace the Flexibility of Cloud Services
Join us on Tuesday, June 26 at 12.45p.m. for a Satellite Symposia Session focused on PACS in the cloud. Patrick Koch, Worldwide Business Director, Vue Cloud Services, Carestream, will present the following:
Public and private healthcare facilities in Europe are leading the world in the implementation of cloud-based PACS and archiving services.
Cloud-based services offer the following advantages:
- The provider assumes responsibility for all aspects of the service including upgrades to hardware and software; adopting and maintaining security measures and conforming to regulatory requirements in each country.
- This highly scalable solution can accommodate multiple authorized users and facilities, regardless of physical location. This greatly facilitates the sharing of imaging studies among affiliated and unaffiliated facilities and remote radiologists and specialists; and
- The ability to pay for capabilities on a per-use basis.
When replacing legacy PACS systems, healthcare providers are now relying upon cloud-based services to efficiently distribute, manage and store imaging exams and related data.
