What are the Risks of PACS Solutions for Radiology Groups? Risks of implementing a PACS solution for your group can come in many forms:
- The risk of making an upfront million-plus dollar investment and never actualizing the value of that investment;
- The risk of needing to make a change that will help you adjust to new industry requirements and being saddled with technology whose potential for adaptation is cost prohibitive; or
- The risk of needing to embrace new, innovative ideas and approaches that could provide a strategic competitive advantage and not being nimble enough technologically to pull them off.
These are significant risks that should be thoroughly considered before entering into such a serious, expensive and long-term commitment.
