Why your RIS/PACS should be on the cloud
The benefits of cloud computing in radiology are undeniable, and they have existed for over two decades now. A report conducted by Salesforce, the number one CRM in the world, concluded that Cloud RIS enabled businesses to “run their organizations more efficiently, serve their clients better, and dramatically increase their overall profit margins’ ‘ (Salesforce). The study found that 94% of businesses improved their security after switching to the cloud.
Although many in the radiology industry are still skeptical about cloud computing, RamSoft® has been offering web-based solutions on the cloud for over a decade, and our customers have seen significant benefits as a result. Cloud-based solutions are not something of the future, they are here and working well. Because of this, we believe that all radiology practices should move to the cloud!
Three key benefits of moving your RIS/PACS from an in-house server to a secure cloud data center are as follows:
1) Reducing Business Costs
Radiology practices that use RIS and PACS on the cloud need not worry about maintaining or upgrading their local servers and backups because everything is always updated and safe on the cloud. Because the cloud service provider shares in the responsibility of securing and maintaining your patient data, less day-to-day maintenance is required. Also, expanding your practice size is simplified on the cloud since you’re able to adjust your storage requirements based on demand, rather than being constrained by a local server’s capacity.
2) Support and Implementation
In the cloud, solutions can be deployed and maintained remotely, as the latest technology in storage and processing power is always used, so on-site installation by a technician is not required. It is even easier and more convenient to reach customer support after deployment, as everything is done remotely.
Disaster Proof and threat-resistant
Since data and images are stored and backed up on multiple servers throughout the world, the diagnostic imaging data you store on the cloud isn’t at risk from natural disasters. Also, your patient data on the cloud is safer from threats because it is maintained by experts who specialize in data security.
Together, we can improve patient care
These benefits, and perhaps even more, are offered by the cloud to healthcare practices. Using the cloud, radiology practices can offer broader interoperability and integration with other systems. As a result, patients will experience fewer wait times, remote access to images and reports, easier scheduling, and faster diagnosis, which results in better patient care.
Let’s work together to make healthcare more efficient and secure while improving patient care. You will see a return on investment within the first month of moving to the cloud.
