Why We Love Cloud Storage (And You Should, Too!)
02.12.15

Why do we love the cloud? Because cloud-based storage systems have changed the way you can interact with a PAC System. Capacity, reliability, and security are the three components of an ideal storage solution, and all three of these qualities can be found in a cloud-based storage system. Without a doubt, cloud-based storage is the future of PAC Systems. Below, are just a handful of the reasons we love the cloud:

Scalability

Fixed storage limits are a thing of the past with the cloud. The cloud allows you to easily increase or decrease your storage requirements depending on current demand. This means you can buy what you need and pay for only what you use. Unlike local storage options, you do not have to plan for the day when your storage limit is met. Upgrading the capacity of a cloud-based storage system is as easy as a few clicks.

Accessibility

With the cloud, you are no longer stuck with local, fixed storage options. Because all of your data is stored over the Internet via the cloud, it’s easy to access files from anywhere at any time. On-site servers require complex configurations in order to provide secure outside accessibility compliant with HIPAA provisions. With the cloud, secure outside accessibility is built-in.

Security

Cloud storage provides peace of mind for its user. The responsibility of file security falls on the PACS provider hosting your data. All data on the cloud is continuously encrypted and backed up, and sharing files is simple—secure access may be granted to any individual user at any location with an active Internet connection.

Disaster Recovery

You never have to worry about losing files when using cloud storage. Data in the cloud is regularly backed up. This includes redundant storage, which keeps multiple copies of a file in the event the most recent version is lost or corrupted. Freeland’s cloud storage service is built upon the backbone of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud Computing software.



Five Ways Your PAC System Is Killing Your Productivity
01.29.15

PAC Systems are intended to make your practice more efficient, but choosing the wrong vendor could end up negating the efficiency that PACS technology was supposed to provide. The following are some of the ways that your PAC system could harm your productivity:

Segregated Reports

Is your PAC system still using a non-integrated report mechanism? As long as your PAC system is stuck on a report mechanism that keeps images and reporting tools separate, you will continue to spend valuable time sorting and searching for patients’ medical records. This not only impedes the level of care and attention you are able to give your patients, but there is also the potential for misappropriation of sensitive medical data. Save yourself time—and liability—by employing a PACS that offers integrated reporting as part of its package.

Single Machine Use

Are you only able to access and transmit medical information from a single, onsite machine? The promise of a PAC System to grant you easier access to medical data is limited if that information can only be sourced from a single, onsite machine.

Single Server Use

Is your PACS data stored on a single server that can only be accessed from one location? If your PACS data is housed on a single server, your ability to source and transmit medical information is directly related to your proximity to that server, which is a detriment to productivity. In recent years, there has been a significant departure from traditional onsite server use to cloud-based storage for PAC systems. With the cloud model, you will be able to access and transmit medical data securely from practically anywhere and potentially with any device, including tablets and smartphones.

Lack of Vendor Neutral Archiving Capability

Is your PAC system able to interpret medical information from other systems? Your productivity could be obstructed if your PAC system is only able to decipher images and reports that are compatible with its system. Your inability to translate a medical report from a different PAC system directly affects how well you are able to dispense medical attention because it slows down vital external communications with other specialists.

Limited Data Storage Options

Are you limited by how much data can be stored on your PAC system? With the numerous options for unlimited storage, your PAC system should not be restricted in its storage capacity. Employ a PACS vendor that uses cloud-based storage, which is virtually limitless, to ensure that you are not spending valuable time and resources in maintaining the appropriate storage bandwidth for your practice.

Your PAC system should help you create a culture of optimal service and high efficiency at your practice, not hinder your productivity. Use this knowledge to ensure that you are implementing the right PAC system for your practice.
