    1. 1. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Scope of Presentation Details about PACS (Picture Archiving and Communication system) it’s basic components and ADVANTAGES to the medical fraternity. And a diagram depicting the flow of PACS from the radiology department to all connected.
    2. 2. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions ABOUT PACSABOUT PACS In medical imaging, picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) are computers, commonly servers, dedicated to the storage, retrieval, distribution and presentation of images. The medical images are stored in an independent format. The most common format for image storage is DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine). Electronic images and reports are transmitted digitally via PACS. MAJOR COMPONENTS OF PACS  The imaging modalities. (CT and MRI)  A secured network. (For the transmission of patient information)  Workstations for interpreting and reviewing images  Archives for the storage and retrieval of images and reports. (Long and short term)

    11. 11. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Benefits OF PACS The Benefits of implementing PACS can be classified in many different ways, Strategic Benefits Operational Benefits Patients Radiologists Radiographers Hospital consultants (non-radiology) Hospital managers GiniPACS-
    12. 12. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Strategic Benefits  Seamless Networking between multiple locations  Reliable, Secure, High-speed data transfer  Improved Patient care and shorter hospital stays  Superior Doctor Collaboration  Faster Diagnosis leading to better patient care  Reduced Waiting time Operational Benefits  Increased Operational efficiency  Quick return on investment  Improved record keeping and data retrieval  Uninterrupted access across broad region  Scalability allows the network to grow.

    13. 13. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Patients PACS transforms a patient’s experience of the care they receive in a number of ways.  Not having to carry packets of film around the hospital and between sites during the course of their care pathway  Less waiting time to receive results  A speedier move to the next point of treatment or discharge  Fewer appointments wasted and operations postponed because of non- availability of images as a result of lost or poor quality images  Less re-testing and, therefore, lower radiation dosage  Potentially quicker discharge from hospital and better care planning resulting from easier access to images and test results GiniPACS-
    14. 14. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Radiologists PACS enables clinicians to be able to access the right image in the right place at the right time to support an efficient, high quality and well communicated diagnosis. Digital imaging allows:  Faster delivery of medical images,  No lost or misplaced image  The ability to report whenever you have free time.  Reliable quality of images.  Flexible viewing with the ability to manipulate images on screen  Instant access to historic images and patient records,  Better collaboration, view from multiple terminals and locations  A more efficient radiology department.  Improved learning and training opportunities, for trainee radiologists and for existing radiologists GiniPACS-
    15. 15. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Radiographers There are a number of ways in which PACS influences your role as a radiographer.  Radiographers can very quickly determine the quality of the image taken.  As a result of electronic requesting, radiographers have all the necessary information available to them in a digitalized format.  Information only needs to be entered into the system once.  Radiographers experience lower radiation doses,  The ability to manipulate images  PACS contributes to a better working environment, as the lack of film processing will result in a quieter and chemical free workspace.

    16. 16. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Hospital consultants (non-radiology)Hospital consultants (non-radiology) The impact of PACS go well beyond a Hospital radiology department. Non-radiology consultants will be affected by PACS, as this system contributes to the following:  Fewer wasted appointments and postponed procedures because of non- availability of patient images  Instant access to patient images, regardless of location.  Better collaboration between radiologists and clinicians.  Experience shows patients feel more engaged and better informed when they can see their images on screen, this can lead to better quality consultations for both the patient and the consultant.

    17. 17. Harvest’sDIGIHealthCare Solutions Hospital managers Many hospital managers see PACS as a 'must have' for a modern hospital, especially as it brings a number of improvements:  PACS frees up valuable space within a hospital  PACS eliminates the health and safety issues associated with chemical processing.  Administrative staff, responsible for image retrieval and filing, are being freed up to undertake more productive tasks.  Patients are processed more quickly with fewer delays. This helps contribute to better health care.  Cost savings are made as film and processing chemicals are no longer needed. GiniPACS-
