Mercy commercializes cloud-based PACS for mid-sized hospitals
Mercy Technology Service, a healthcare technology company, designed a SaSS cloud-based PACS system to decrease expenditure and increase efficiency for medium size or small size hospital. According to the article from Healthcare IT News, the cloud-based technology is able to combine nine legacy PACS system into one entity.
The service is a solution to the current PACS technology in the United States, which smaller scale hospitals can save technology expenses on the PACS system. Moreover, the cloud-based technology allows the hospitals to increase efficiency by diminishing turnaround time by 50%, which mean radiologists now can enjoy a faster response time on generating the report. By diminishing the time of generating the report, in the business perspective, the hospitals can now decrease the waiting of the patients with this technology. With the implementation of the technology, the hospitals can now decrease the waiting time (which could be translated into money) and increase the efficiency among the radiology experts. If we look at the technology in MIS 4596 point of view, the solution is the product to increase the efficiency of the output without increasing the input of the product.
