Disparate medical systems hinder clinical collaboration

In healthcare, each department traditionally has its own medical imaging system. This legacy way of doing work is expensive and complex, burdening doctors with imaging systems that don’t talk to each other. These siloed systems make clinical collaboration between departments inherently difficult.

From an IT perspective, siloed medical systems also create extra costs because each system has its own infrastructure that needs managing. There can be many systems in one healthcare facility, meaning when mergers and acquisitions occur, medical imaging systems multiply, exponentially increasing system complexity.
