Enterprise imaging beyond radiology:
Developing a modern medical imaging strategy
The need for a strategy around medical imaging as one clinical tool
A typical hospital’s radiology services produce 40% to 60% of medical images, but many other specialties also depend heavily on images, such as cardiology, orthopedics, dermatology, and others. Although medical images are a key clinical tool for multiple disciplines, they are still largely unintegrated into hospital EMR systems – making it difficult for physicians outside that hospital to access those images.
Moving medical images and related informatics to cloud services like Amazon Web Services (AWS) can help create more complete pictures of patient health and yield valuable insights, but healthcare organizations should ensure that they have a strategy in place before adopting the cloud.
