3 Benefits of Web-based Medical Imaging to Health Care


Visitors: 388

Many PACS systems require expensive and time consuming administrative support and maintenance. This can put a strain on already tight medical budgets. A web-based diagnostic testing solution, however, is a software as a service (SaaS) model. The inherent ease of access with a SaaS solution means better radiology workflow, diagnostic testing, and patient care.

3 significant ways web-based, or SaaS, diagnostic testing and imaging solutions improve health care include:

1. Efficient Radiology Workflow - Radiologists are faced with the need to deliver superior and timely patient care in a cost-effective manner. A web-based imaging solution streamlines radiology workflow and provides the radiologist with real-time access to critical information and time sensitive results. Web-based ultrasound imaging eliminates the need for thermal paper and hand written notes. This helps with quality control and assurance while saving valuable time in the radiologist’s workday.

2. Faster Diagnostic Testing - Reading physicians require fast access to patient information. A web-based solution significantly improves an imaging center's ability to process and share these diagnostic tests and medical studies.
Rather than waiting 2-10 days to see the results of a diagnostic test, web-based solutions allow reading physicians to receive and access the reports immediately and automatically. Reading physicians who use web-based diagnostic testing and imaging can complete interpretations any time on any computer with internet access. This means greater flexibility for the specialist and a faster turnaround time for the referring physician.

3. Decreased Medical Imaging Expenses - Health care systems around the world are under enormous pressure to improve efficiency and quality of care while reducing costs. Medical imaging done electronically and then stored and shared online means imaging departments can cut costs associated with film, CDs, videotapes, packaging and shipping.
