A new KLAS study finds that the requirement to work through licensed service providers (LSPs) is causing incumbent PACS to be commonly perceived as inferior to newer entrants into the market. The report, entitled “UK PACS 2013: The View Is Changing,” looks at leading PACS suppliers and finds that incumbent PACS and newer PACS have closer performance scores than commonly perceived when not delivered through LSPs.

The report looked at offerings from Agfa, Carestream, FUJIFILM, GE, and Sectra and compares performance, mindshare and likelihood to gain or lose market share. The report also looks at the growing RIS and VNA markets.?For more details on each vendor’s performance and the KLAS report UK PACS 2013: The View Is Changing, visit KLAS online.
