Picture Archiving and Communications Systems/ PACS Systems Market

Picture Archiving and Communications Systems/ PACS Systems Market– By Components (Software and Hardware), Delivery Mode & Imaging Types [Cardiology PACS, Oncology PACS, Dental PACS] - Global Trends, Competitor Analysis & Forecasts To 2017

Report Code: UC 1717 Dec, 2018, by marketsandmarkets.com

Picture archiving and communication system (PACS) is a technology used in medical imaging in clinical settings especially storage and communication which provides for cost effective and manageable access to images from multiple source modalities such as X-ray plain film (PF), computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), ultrasound, nuclear medicine and positron emission tomography (PET).

PACS has helped in reducing the physical and time barriers associated with traditional film-based image retrieval, distribution, and display. PACS finds widespread application in hospitals and clinics as it eliminates the need of maintaining hard copies of images and replaces them with digital storage

Other components of PACS are the following:

  • A secured network for the transmission of patient information in the form of images
  • Computer and network enabled workstations for interpreting and reviewing images
  • And archives for the storage and retrieval of images and reports

Market Opportunities

  • Modern healthcare practice requires the need for storing, interpreting and consultation by large no. of medical experts on patient diagnostic images. Medical archiving systems are not sufficient to host and store these images and scalability and interoperatibility is a challenge as well. Healthcare providers need a solution to enable easy access and secured sharing of all clinical information thus protecting privacy of patients and keeping costs in check.
  • The need to integrate patient images with electronic medical records and Health information exchange platforms is expected to give additional flip to the market is near future as well.
  • Industry players have been predicting steady growth in the market for picture archiving and communication systems as healthcare providers are adapting to new image and information management platforms in order to meet their needs.
  • Cloud based PACS solutions is the latest market development which is expected to take a significant market share in the next 5 years.

Market challenges-

  • A key market challenge in PACS/RIS market is the challenge to integrate the applications for the radiologist as well as to integrate it with larger healthcare imaging and information solutions including critical results notification workflow, broader patient health information and the display of related documents.
  • Another challenge for the PACS companies is to keep track of the legislative developments along with clinical and technological advancements so as to keep the product developments in synchronization with the latest market requirements.

This report covers the PACS Market by components, delivery modes, imaging modalities and application types and provides global and regional forecasts till 2017. The coverage of market drivers, restraints and opportunities shall enhance your understanding of key factors affecting the market which are also built into the market forecasts.
