– 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. Images can be quickly and easily transmitted via a se- cure Internet connection to on-site or off-site radiologists for reading. Stud- ies can be shared with referring physi- cians or other clinicians at any loca- tion over a basic Internet connection. Cloud-based services also can allow patients to access their own records and share them with their physicians. Cloud-based services offer the following advantages: – The provider assumes responsibil- ity for all aspects of the service in- cluding upgrades to hardware and software; adopting and maintain- ing security measures and conform- ing to regulatory requirements in each country. – This highly scalable solution can accommodate multiple author- ized users and facilities, regardless of physical location. This greatly facilitates the sharing of imaging studies among affiliated and unaf- filiated facilities and remote radi- ologists and specialists; and When Replacing Legacy PACS Systems, Healthcare Groups Embrace The Flexibility of Cloud-Based Services PACSintheCloud Public and private healthcare facilities in Europe are leading the world in the implementation of cloud-based PACS and archiving services. In an environ- ment of rapid technological advances, it makes sense to select the most flex- ible platform possible for the manage- ment and distribution of imaging exams and associated patient information.
