However, several factors curb the implementation of PACS in the region. To integrate the databases of various hospitals, robust IT software is essential. Healthcare institutions looking to install PACS also require an IT department with a monthly budget, apart from initial installation investments. The lack of specialized IT engineers further raises personnel costs.
Therefore, there is a high level of resistance to acquire IT software, reflected in the low budgets both public and private clinics and hospitals designate for these solutions.
"To meet the need of the low-budget market segment that do not have PACS solutions yet, multinational companies are developing and implementing more accessible business models," noted Baguear. "Rental, pay-per-use, and cloud-based pay-per-use models are cost-effective, thus facilitating adoption.''
This will enable PACS installations in Latin America to reach North American and European standards in the next 15 years.
