The technological growth spurts in radiology have undeniable benefits. Whether it’s terms of workflow, impact on the budget or patient care, the advantages are easy to see. The only problem with these advancements is that they can present growing pains unless you take a cloud-based route. Adopting cloud PACS technology can be a big time saver and relieve you of burdensome administrative duties.

The Advantages

First and foremost, your decision to adopt a cloud-based PACS gives you flexibility. For example, does your bandwidth use fluctuate from month to month? With the right cloud PACS vendor, you can augment your plan so you’re not paying for something you don’t use. Let’s take a look at some other advantages:

  • Better Security
    One of the barriers for many organizations in adopting cloud-based technology is due to security concerns. While you still have to practice safe data practices, rest assured that your cloud vendor has strong strategies in place on their end to keep your information secure, so you don’t have to worry.
  • Sharing Simplicity
    If you’ve routinely run into problems sharing your images and other data, cloud PACS vendors are giving you access to tools that make this a thing of the past. Whether it’s across departments or to providers across the country, sharing images becomes easy with the right cloud PACS vendor.
  • Low to No Maintenance
    Cloud-based vendors are the ones doing the heavy lifting. There are no updates or maintenance duties for you to do. You sit back and enjoy the productivity gains.
  • Continuity
    From natural disasters to man-made disasters, anything that befalls your region doesn’t have to impact your business operation where your data is concerned. When you partner with the right vendor, cloud-based tools give you the ability to bounce back quickly from any unfortunate incident, because your data is backed up in duplicate, geographically disparate locations. Business continuity and disaster recovery efforts are significantly boosted with cloud PACS.
