At ProMedica, a 13-hospital system serving northwestern Ohio and southeastern Michigan, the lineup of clinical departments soon to benefit from leadership’s decision to expand a long-installed radiology PACS into an enterprise VNA practically reads like a who’s who of the entire system. Cardiology, pathology and ophthalmology are on line or in line to be soon. So too are dermatology, wound care, maternal-fetal medicine, outpatient physician practices and more.

Despite its immense institutional know-how and its pure heft—11 hospitals, 5,000 medical staffers, $4 billion in net revenues—the Hospital Corporation of America’s multi-state, Denver-based Continental Division still found itself sending CDs and printouts via, among other low-tech image-sharing options, the chests of patients in ambulances and helicopters.

The 2014 meeting was a truly successful event! We expanded the program to include multidisciplinary evidence-based practice, thus including physicians and IT and healthcare executives and leaders in nursing and interdisciplinary care and it turned out to be great idea — many of you appreciated the expanded program and we look forward to how we can meet your needs for next year's meeting.

With digital radiology, PACS and RIS in use for 15 years or more at most US hospitals, a disparate system architecture is now the reality for most departments. Multiple PACS and mini-PACS populate the environment, resulting in inefficiencies, increased operating costs, and reduced throughput for departments.

PACS has evolved--but its architecture hasn't. A consolidated PACS architecture makes data available on-demand and can reduce total cost of ownership (TCO). Take a look at how an Enterprise Image Archive with a "Universal Viewer" can strengthen you organization and reduce costs.
