Exponential growth in clinical imaging procedures – coupled with shrinking budgets – has forced healthcare providers to make quick storage decisions at the expense of a strategic approach to managing archive growth. Furthermore, PACS data remains confined within each department and with multiple vendors and file formats, so sharing data between the various PACS is nearly impossible. As a result, clinicians don’t have access to a complete patient record and care can be adversely affected.
In this webinar, you will learn best practices for taming your PACS archive growth, while liberating your patient data from vendor lock-in. Learn how Texas Regional Medical Center is addressing the challenges of system interoperability and data retention as they grow and expand their footprint of clinical operations.
In addition, we’ll discuss:
- Industry challenges, trends and future directions
- Strategies adopted by Texas Regional Medical Center
- Best practice recommendations
