Rising Adoption of EHR Systems Drives Usage of PACS and RIS

"The importance and benefits of healthcare IT have been recognized with several governments around the world, spurring technological advancements in the field," the lead analyst states. The usage of PACS and RIS for the accurate and detailed evaluation of patient's health has increased as a result of this. An example of favorable government intervention would be the U.S. Government, which encourages the adoption of healthcare IT products such as RIS-PACS and hospital information systems (HIS) to maintain electronic health records (EHR).

The rising adoption of EHR systems in hospital as well as office-based practices has also increased in recent times, further driving the demand for PACS and RIS. These systems allow medical images to be saved electronically and ensures the effective and easy accessibility of the images to caregivers.

On the other hand, high equipment cost acts as a major deterrent to the global PACS and RIS market. "In addition to the initial expense of hardware and software licenses, costs pertaining to ongoing tech support and implementation also restricts the adoption of PACS and RIS by healthcare facilities," the author of the study reports.
