Efficiency is what everyone is trying to find today, regardless of the industry. In a highly technical field like radiology, a field that is spread out through sparsely populated rural areas to densely populated, major urban centers, finding efficiency is a continual challenge. With an eye for keeping medical imaging technology up-to-date, whether it’s a rural clinic or a huge hospital system, the goal becomes far less intimidating.

Mapping Out Success

Workflow is the key to success in medical imaging management. First and foremost, take a look at the technologies you’re using in your day-to-day processes. Perhaps you’ve got a machine that gets a lot of use and still “plays nice” with other technologies in your workplace, so you hold off on replacing it, but you know there is something better out there. For many medical imaging offices, CD burning technology has been that crux.

But today, moving to newer technology is important because getting rid of your burner means you’re likely freeing up some precious real estate. You’re also getting rid of a method of sharing images that is inefficient, unreliable and costly.

Vendors offering cloud-based solutions can ease you away from your CD burner and into a reliable, often less expensive and always more efficient way of storing, accessing and sharing medical images.

Instead of going onto a disc that might not burn correctly, can get lost, stolen or broken, your images are available via a secure URL. Furthermore, when you choose the right provider of these cloud-based services, you’re also going to get vendor neutral archiving technology, which means you don’t have to view your images on a dedicated viewer. As long as you have an internet connection, you can view your images on any device.
