Radiology imaging solutions have generated a significant return on its healthcare IT investment by implementing Exa’s Voice Recognition in place of traditional transcriptionists, and their productivity has increased by 400%.
Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is a modality of the medical imaging technology used specifically for image transmission from the site of image acquisition to other locations. The technology is convenient to access multiple modalities such as radiographs, CT scan, MRI, ultrasound, and others.
It is noted that the increasing prevalence of chronic diseases and the growing geriatric population are the key factors driving the PACS market. The increasing burden of chronic diseases has been observed in different parts of the world. Population in the low socio-economic group is mostly found to get affected by these chronic diseases. According to the report published in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2017, nearly 92.1 million adults are dealing with at least one type of cardiovascular disease. The prevalence of type-2 diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular diseases has increased rapidly in the recent years, suggested by a study published in the BMC Public Health in 2017.
Various other factors such as supportive investments and funds provided by government and private bodies, rising demand for early diagnosis, technological advancements in the medical imaging devices, rising incidence of cancer, improving regulatory framework, growing research funding, unmet medical needs, rising competition among market players, and increasing government assistance are continuously contributing to the growth of the global PACS market.
Despite these drivers, there are some issues associated with the PACS market. The high cost associated with the technology, lack of healthcare insurance, lack of awareness, and poor healthcare system in low- and middle-income countries may hamper the growth of the market.
It is estimated that the Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) market growth is expected to boost at a CAGR 7.0% during the forecast period of 2017–2023.
