Declines in Traditional PACS Deployment Models Give Rise to the Next Imaging IT Growth Opportunity

This analysis of the US enterprise medical image viewers market provides an overview of the current and future information technology (IT) ecosystem for imaging informatics with enterprise viewers in context. The study presents and discusses the various market segments for enterprise viewers, the key customers for each type of solution as well as the top uses cases for the technology within the US market. The study further discusses the market and technology trends relating to enterprise viewer adoption, assesses the current market size, and provides an analysis of the competitive landscape.

-Sources of information used in this study include primary interviews with executives at vendor organizations and thought leaders within the healthcare industry. Secondary research was also conducted.
-This approach comes with limitations: Not all manufacturers are willing to share information or sales details, and reported information often does not cover all distribution channels. All sources were employed in attempt to limit bias and reconcile differences leading to these consensual estimates reported by Frost & Sullivan.
-Quantitative estimates were determined based on information obtained through primary research interviews with market participants and were cross-correlated using public filings, secondary research, and mathematical models.
-Forecast projections and compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) are based on analysts’ assessment of the anticipated net effects of ongoing trends in the market as well as the macro-economy, taking into account the current pipeline, projected growth, and industry consensus.
-Only aggregate calculations and estimates at a national level, including the United States, have been utilized in this study; therefore, the data should not be considered representative of an actual facility or group of facilities.
-Despite making every attempt to foresee upcoming high-impact factors, unexpected shifts in demand that result from unforeseen price changes, regulatory changes, sudden changes in patient and end-user characteristics, or any other event that is not known during the period of market research are not reflected in the market forecasts.

-As one of the most digitized clinical departments, radiology has been using medical image viewers as part of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) for over decades.
-However, throughout the adoption curve for PACS systems, which has reached saturation in the US market, the image viewing function has remained largely confined to diagnostic imaging workstations located in the reading room.
-Only a few years ago did PACS systems begin to expand outside of the reading room, allowing for remote (Web-based) access and viewing of images, along with a limited set of image manipulation tools.
-In this context, over the last few years, independent vendors have set out to fill the gap left open by conventional PACS systems, opening the way to an easier deployment of the image viewing function across various points of care in the healthcare enterprise.
-Indeed, a multitude of use cases are now possible by way of enterprise viewers, chief among which is the clinical review of full-fidelity images, and not just imaging reports, by referring physicians and other key clinicians involved in the continuum of patient care.
-While enterprise viewers are currently implemented as point solutions, mostly used as a tactical way to cater to the needs of secondary users of imaging, they are gradually evolving to meet specific needs and varying preferences of the primary users of imaging such as those in radiology, cardiology, and orthopedics.
