WEBINAR: Help Increase Your Organization’s Access to Data Through PACS Integration

Vital-sponsored webinar took place May 20, 2 ET/ 1 pm CT

In this webinar, learn about what enterprise imaging means for PACS integration. Hear about the potential benefits to organizations and some real case studies of PACS integration.

In healthcare organizations, picture archiving communication systems, or PACS, have been the foundation of medical imaging. Typically, healthcare organizations have different PACS systems for different uses. Radiology, cardiology, and other departments have specialized solutions that don’t easily talk to each other. This can lead to a number of challenges. As providers look to improve their ability to share data across their organization, they must find a way to connect these silos. Organizations who are looking to replace or change their PACS have an opportunity to expand their capabilities with new technology.
