A radiology information system is a computer system that is aimed to support effective workflow and business analysis in a radiology department. This system helps in managing all the business functions of the department, from patient management, analysis, and inventory control. These systems provide ease of use and are easily accessible. Moreover, these systems offer benefits, such as high security, reliability, and privacy as they can be accessed by only authorized users. The radiology information system (RIS) is considered the core system for the electronic management of imaging departments. Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) facilitates short- and long-term storage, retrieval, management, distribution and presentation of medical images. PACS allows healthcare systems to image management on departmental and enterprise levels. Rapid evolution and adoption of health information technology is supporting the demand for PACS. Growth of this market will be driven by government reforms and initiatives towards healthcare centralization. Penetration of PACS into specialties such as endoscopy and oncology will lead to additional PACS applications and thus market growth. Furthermore, features such as integrated speech recognition and advanced clinical decision support systems will also contribute to expansion of PACS market. The introduction of PACS established a co-dependent relationship between the RIS and PACS. Optimal efficiency for the imaging department occurs when PACS and RIS integration enables seamless information sharing between RIS and PACS.
The geographical segmentation of the global RIS and PACS market comprises North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America and Middle East and Africa. North America accounted for the largest market in the global RIS and PACS market.
