This is very common that everybody likes to save some bucks whenever they buy something. It’s the same for a doctor, a lawyer, and a hospital administrator. Even your next-door neighbor is also trying to save money. The things are the same for the healthcare industry as well.
So, it might be overwhelming while looking at your checkbook. But, sometimes we fall in the trap of being uncertain when we try to spend on the things that are essential for our businesses. Cloud based PACS is such a thing that you might be thinking about a waste of money without any savings.
But, you still can save some money while shopping for a Cloud PACS if you know the ways. That’s why we’re going to share some ways that will help you to save some money from your Cloud PACS.
Look for an Inexpensive PACS
Your desktop or laptop is probably costly to you if you’re a passionate OsiriX or Horos user. If you can work with a desktop, it’s great for you. But, you can’t miscalculate the possible threat of trailing your data.
It means that your PC or laptop is not the perfect storage space for your patients’ medical images. The capacity of your PC storage is a type of joke when you’ll compare it with some other available options like cloud-based storage.
Also, this storage is not just a great alternative to your PC storage, it’s also comparatively inexpensive. One or other of the disks may conquest and defend your data you previously put on a disk that failed if configured properly.
Pay as You Go
This is a nice way to deal with the requirement for a PACS and your offsite backup with the Cloud if complete buying of a PACS is out of your budget. You can use the cloud as your primary storage of PAC and makes sure with backs in offsite.
Moreover, you don’t have anything to maintain this type of storage. Indeed, the fees you pay for the cloud services that come with all included. Thus, you’re all set with access, sharing, and mobility of your patients’ images and data.
It’s possibly the most inexpensive and reliable storage solution so far. You can get the Cloud PACS within $100 per month with an initial setup cost of $500 to $1,000 that depends on the configuration.
This is always what we recommend besides getting a license for the storage of your patients’ images and data. Consider getting another contract of support services from the vendor or manufacturers you take the services. Until you’re completely all set, you should take their full support for the solution you use.
This is not just the smartest option; it also will be very economical for you ultimately. It’s because when you experience a software or hardware issue, you need to hire an expert who will make an additional charge.
But, you’ll get the services free of extra cost if you have a contract with the support services. The support services cost not more than 25% extra of the buying price of the cloud PACS that to be integrated with radiology information system. And you have to pay the amount annually.
