Orem, Utah-based KLAS says when it comes to enterprise imaging (EI), many hospitals are considering new vendor-neutral solutions for archiving and accessing medical images in order to avoid being locked in to closed, proprietary software.

The new KLAS report, Enterprise Imaging: A Vendor Reality Check, explores the vendor solutions healthcare providers are considering most. The study, KLAS says, found that while many providers are looking to their PACS vendor as a likely EI partner, they also recognize the potential pitfalls of getting locked into a proprietary solution that may not translate well from one department to another.

In total, KLAS says, Philips was the EI vendor most frequently mentioned by providers, followed by GE, McKesson and EMC. In addition, the KLAS study found that while radiology, nuclear medicine and cardiology enjoy significant adoption of digital imaging management, other departments such as oncology, endoscopy and pathology are still fairly immature in their use of the technology.
