While Picture Archive Communications System or PACS adoption across healthcare is high, potential growth opportunities abound.
HIMSS Analytics’ latest Essentials Brief, a follow up to a 2014 study on the same subject, provides a look at the current state of the imaging market. While study respondents indicated a high level of PACS adoption across the industry there are some areas the study highlights as potential growth opportunities. The study looks into Enterprise Image Viewing adoption and plans for future adoption, current and future imaging point of access by technology and unique voice of customer feedback around the impact of the change in payment models and accountable care will have on imaging.
Key findings of the Study include:
- Voice of Customer (VOC) from nearly 150 respondents
- Year-over-year trending analysis of enterprise image viewing solution adoption, drivers and primary use cases
- Year-over-year insight into image storage trends showing potential beginnings of a shift to newer storage technologies
- Adoption of tablets and smartphones is relatively low in the current imaging market, however these technologies are still the most cited technologies for image viewing access plans
