Studies show that imaging data will account for nearly 35% of all medical data by 2015. This is up from just 28% in 2010. With an increased reliance on diagnostic imaging, there is an immediate need to simplify image-sharing processes across healthcare facilities. Cloud PACS medical imaging software offers a cost-effective and scalable solution for this need.
Moving Medical Imaging to the Cloud
Although in-house servers have traditionally been the norm for most healthcare facilities, practices are increasingly switching to external storage known as the cloud. This means their data is stored on external, yet still secure, servers and can be accessed online with a computer that has internet access.
Why are they switching to the cloud?
Reasons hospitals are moving their medical imaging to the cloud include:
- Cost and energy savings
- Rapid deployment
- Customer empowerment
- Minimal management effort
Increasing Medical Imaging Standards
Again, with the increased reliance on diagnostic imaging, standards also need to be improved in order to properly handle the large amount of data. ISO International Standards ensure that products and services are safe, reliable and of good quality.
Medical Imaging Software
Studycast cloud PACS medical imaging software allows healthcare facilities to transmit and view ultrasound images in the cloud. It creates complete, professional reports that include study images with just a few clicks, and those images can be shared with patients on any computer with internet access.
