Who uses DICOM migration?
Hospitals, clinics, and any provider using diagnostic imaging devices need DICOM migrations – almost all healthcare providers.
Diagnostic imaging devices include any technology that performs X-rays, CT scans, ultrasounds, MRIs, and more.
Since many healthcare organizations get thousands of patients each day and multiple imaging scans for some patients, it’s essential to store and archive this imaging data on a reliable system.
With the emergence of better systems and standards for storing and archiving medical data, DICOM migrations become increasingly vital for all healthcare providers to manage complex workflows and information.
Is it time for a DICOM migration?
You update your computer software and electronic devices routinely—but did you know you should be doing the same with your electronic health record system?
Perhaps you’re starting to notice inefficiencies and inaccuracies with your imaging data. When using a legacy PACS system, these things happen more frequently and create significant challenges for healthcare providers to do their job correctly.
If your current system is lagging or you’re already using a newer one but haven’t moved your imaging data, it’s time for a DICOM migration.
