When making any major purchase, the benefits should outweigh the drawbacks. With more and more medical offices and healthcare facilities across the nation implementing PACS Systems, the question is no longer, “Should I invest in a PACS System for my practice?” but rather, “How can a PACS System best help my particular practice?”
Improving your workflow should be one of the most pronounced ways that a PACS System will help your practice. Implementing the right PACS System for your practice can help you create a gap-free, service-oriented, and highly efficient medical office environment. Your patients expect an individualized and organized office visit, and the PACS System should help your team guide patients through their experience at your office.
A PACS System should increase workflow efficiency in a number of specific ways:
- Minimize the amount of time spent searching for all of your patients’ medical records
- Increasing the expediency and accuracy of your diagnoses
- Enhance your office’s internal communications capabilities
- Speed up outside communications with colleagues and specialists.
