KLAS: Vendors Not Delivering on RIS/PACS Solutions

A new report from Orem, Utah-based KLAS indicates that market hype for integrated RIS/PACS has not translated into many viable provider deployments, and finds that few vendors have delivered an integrated, full-featured RIS/PACS.

In a new report titled, The Revival of RIS, KLAS profiles the renewed interest among healthcare providers in RIS technology. It examines efforts by several major healthcare IT companies to deliver a RIS/PACS offering that would combine the imaging capacity of a PACS product with the patent-centric workflow and reporting available in the RIS.

The report concludes that few vendors today are providing a truly integrated solution. While a number of vendors market RIS/PACS solutions to community hospitals and outpatient organizations, many of those offerings only deliver limited RIS functionality, without extensive billing, managerial or reporting features, according to the survey.

The report has also identified a renewed interest in the RIS as more healthcare providers embrace a patient-centric approach to medical imaging. For more information on the report, visit www.klasresearch.com.
