While 71 percent of healthcare organizations are either using or considering the deployment of cloud computing or storage technologies, trust in public-cloud services such as those offered by Amazon, Google and others remains weak, according to a new KLAS report. PACS is an area of particular interest in terms of leveraging the cloud, according to the report.
The CIO of a facility with more than 1,000 beds told KLAS, “I don’t know that there are a ton of major healthcare providers putting their patient data in the (public) cloud right now. From a liability perspective, it isn’t as mature as some other industries. That is a major concern for me right now.”
Agfa HealthCare announces that it has signed an agreement with the Maastricht Universitair Medisch Centrum+ (University Medical Center – UMC+) in The Netherlands to install its IMPAX Radiology Information System/Picture Archiving and Communication System (RIS/PACS) and IMPAX for Nuclear Medicine. The solutions will provide workflow support to both the radiology and nuclear medicine departments.
Maastricht UMC+ was created in January 2008 by the merging of the university hospital of Maastricht (azM) and the Faculty of Health, Medicine and Life Sciences of the Maastricht University. In addition to healthcare, UMC+ focuses on education and research activities. It counts over 700 beds, employs over 5000 hospital staff members and educates over 4000 university students. Maastricht UMC+ (the + refers to the integration of medicine and health science in the care chain) treats patients with all types of diseases, from the simple to the very complex.
