Demand has grown for neurology and neurosurgery services in the United States as the baby boomer population continues to age. Non-hospital facilities see an outpatient shift as technological advances with minimally invasive techniques are encouraged by reimbursement trends.
Neuroscience is a particularly image-intensive field often requiring advanced imaging like MR to make a critical diagnosis. One way to reduce costs and improve patient care in neurosurgery and neurology is to turn towards cloud technology that can provide access to imaging and patient records.
Simplified access to medical imaging through the cloud reduces duplicate imaging procedures, cuts costs for both facility and patient alike while improving access to rapid care.
