PACS as a Service
Like most IT solutions used at the core of many businesses, software is only a small part of what is required to make a solution work. Hardware is often involved and with PACS it is commonly a large part of it. Regardless of the size of the practice the capital outlay on hardware and software for a PACS solution can be quite substantial.
This cost grows even more when one introduces concepts such as backups and generous image retention policies. Four to five years after the initial capital outlay it is time again to start thinking of replacing ones hardware due to failing devices, part scarcity, and systems being out-of-date or no longer supported, and upgrading ones software perhaps. Historically this has been a never ending cycle...until now.
