Orem-Utah-based KLAS found large hospitals saw a significant range in healthcare provider scoring of their PACS solution, as well as offered advice for clinical implementation team building in two new reports.
Implementing a PACS solution in a hospital or healthcare facility offers benefits such as streamlined efficiency, higher quality patient care, clinician satisfaction, and cost savings, the report states. However, with more than 70 PACS solutions available on the market today, solution selection is not much easier now than it was when KLAS first began monitoring PACS vendor performance in 2001. In this year’s report, KLAS collected data from more than 600 respondents employed at hospitals with 200 beds or more to study the current vendor performance trends in the PACS market.
As implementation roles change, healthcare providers assume more of a lead role and increase utilization of application vendors with the changes in today’s healthcare marketplace and rollouts of many new software systems. KLAS asked what strategies were successful, and, knowing what they know now, what would healthcare providers do differently if they were to begin the clinical implementation process again, and published the findings in the new report.
