Market Overview

Increased Emphasis on Information Technology Initiatives by Healthcare Bodies Drives the Adoption of PACS

Strong information and communication technology initiatives, especially in systems designed to support clinical care by health departments in various Australian territories and states, are expected to rapidly drive the growth of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) as well as filmless imaging in the country in the coming years. Healthcare facilities are adopting PACS as part of their initiatives to maximize efficiency in the acquisition, storage, distribution, and interpretation of diagnostic images by digitizing these functions.

To capitalize on this scenario, vendors in the Australian PACS market must address integration issues present in this space due to the high penetration of legacy systems in Australian hospitals, states the analyst of this research service. These service providers must also emphasize on offering superior services, implementing sound business strategies, and developing new technologies to counter intense competition from alternative solutions.

Rise In Integration of PACS with Other Healthcare Systems Spurs Demand in the Market

While the awareness pertaining to the benefits of PACS solutions is increasing, the opportunities for these systems are greater with public hospitals than in their private counterparts. However, increasing competition is likely to trigger the adoption of PACS in private hospitals as well. The rise in the integration of PACS with radiology information and hospital information systems - as hospitals move toward an integrated healthcare IT structure - bodes well for PACS vendors in Australia.

Overall, Australia, along with its sophisticated medical environment and high standards of care, is seeing a good penetration of high-end medical imaging modalities, highlights the analyst. Hence, to capitalize on this situation, PACS solution providers should come out with ways to decrease the high investments needed to adopt their systems.
