Interoperability is Biggest Issue Facing CVIS/Cardiac PACS

Diagnostic and Interventional Cardiology reports that the largest barrier to hospitals seeking to upgrade their CVIS or cardiology PACS systems is interoperability. The article states that: "... an ideal CVIS should be standards-based, vendor neutral, [and] use[s] structured reporting (to enable comprehensive searches and data mining)." 

Global PACS Market to Top $5.3B by 2020

GBI Research's lastest report on the global PACS market shows that the industry will surpass $5.3 billion in value by 2020. The global PACS market is currently valued at $2.9 billion, with the United States leading the charge. According to the report, "... many U.S. hospitals are considering upgrading their conventional PACS and are seeking interoperability with different vendors of EMRs and other information systems." 

Appropriate Use Criteria Improved Some Cardiac Imaging

Diagnostic Imaging reports on a recent study published in the Journal of American College of Cardiology that shows that appropriate use criteria (AUC) for cardiac imaging have led to some improvements in volumes of cardiac imaging requests. AUC resulted in improvements for some types of cardiac imaging tests but not all.
