In an age when consolidation, mergers, and acquisitions are increasingly common, the concept of the deconstructed PACS addresses real challenges and resolves pressing issues. Larger radiology practices are emerging, changing the way hospitals purchase radiology professional services.
 

In an age when consolidation, mergers, and acquisitions are increasingly common, the concept of the deconstructed PACS addresses real challenges and resolves pressing issues. Larger radiology practices are emerging, changing the way hospitals purchase radiology professional services.

Please join Merge’s Jon Devries, VP Solutions Management, for a thoughtful presentation during the HIMSS15 Interoperability Showcase next week in Chicago. Devries’ presentation, Enterprise Imaging in a Deconstructed World, will investigate the business and technical drivers behind the Deconstructed PACS movement as well as the vital role the VNA is playing today, and will continue to play in the future.  

“The move to new PACS topology, also known as distributed, deconstructed, etc., is driven by internal stakeholder priorities, mergers & acquisitions, new partnerships, and the movement to Accountable Care Organizations and narrow networks.  In this deconstructed world, viewers and worklists are easier to replace as clinical and business needs evolve. This trend puts a premium on the vendor neutral archive (VNA) as the foundation for storing, protecting, and managing clinical information throughout the enterprise,” said Devries.

A distributed PACS environment relies upon component solutions and informed organizations can leverage best of breed technologies. Devries will share best practices for managing these interoperability solutions within your organization.
