May 1, 2014 — Government regulations and JCAHO (Joint Commission) certification are driving providers to make purchasing plans for dose monitoring solutions, and in discussions about these plans, two vendors are capturing the majority of providers' mindshare. This is according to the latest KLAS report, Radiology Dose Monitoring Solutions 2014: Provider Strategies in an Evolving Market.

Of the 100 providers KLAS interviewed, 83 either have purchased a dose monitoring solution or are seriously looking for one. When providers were asked which solutions they were considering, Bayer and GE Healthcare dominated the discussions, with both vendors being mentioned by about 60 percent of providers. While 30 percent of providers have already purchased a solution, 65 percent plan on purchasing one within the next two years.

"While Bayer and GE are currently capturing the majority of the mindshare, other players have garnered some attention. However, they have an uphill battle in trying to compete with the two mindshare leaders," said Matt Terry, the report’s author. "The interest level is high as organizations attempt to figure out which solution makes the most sense for them. Options range from full, robust solutions with all the bells and whistles, to simpler solutions that can still get the job done, to PACS [picture archiving and communications systems] solutions that now offer dose monitoring capabilities."

The firms included in this study are the American College of Radiology (ACR), Agfa HealthCare, Bayer HealthCare, Bracco, DR Systems, GE Healthcare, Infinitt, Imalogix, McKesson, Novarad, PACSHealth, Philips, Radiance, Scannerside, Sectra and Siemens.
