The PACS market is currently an evolving, dynamic space ripe for disruption—many provider organizations are replacing legacy PACS solutions and enterprise imaging (EI) is on the rise. As provider organizations examine potential vendor partners, the following three considerations are top of mind:
  1. Are current customers satisfied (and does the vendor deliver consistently regardless of client volume)?
  2. Can the vendor scale to meet the complex needs of large-volume organizations?
  3. What is the vendor’s EI strategy and how well can they provide EI guidance?
Today, no vendor has proven themselves in all three areas. This report will examine vendor performance in each.
