MIIS Market, Legacy Systems Replacement & Advances in Software Discussed by GBI Research
04 Jun 2012 • by Natalie Aster
The increase in sales of digital diagnostic imaging equipment, which helps reduce the costs associated with medical films, has played a significant role in the increased adoption of Medical Imaging Information Systems (MIIS) in hospitals.
MIIS play a substantial role in effective management and utilization of digital patient information including medical images. There has been a surge in the acquisition of digital imaging systems such as the digital X-ray systems in the US, Europe and Japan, while sales of film-based analog X-ray systems have been on the decline. This is due to the cost of films increasing significantly in the last few years because of the increasing price of silver, a key ingredient in them. This has added further momentum to the move towards digital technologies.
According to the report “Medical Imaging Information Systems Market to 2017 - Replacement of Legacy Systems and Advances in Software Present Growth Opportunities” by GBI Research, Advanced Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS) and their associated applications are now fulfilling the demanding workflow requirements of healthcare personnel and replacing legacy systems. Many of the legacy PACS used in hospitals in the US are more than five years old and now many companies have launched advanced PACS that offer features such as "all-in-one-desktop" solutions via web-based access, enhanced image management and visualization, and advanced integration.

Web-based access allows health workers to access images at multiple locations, a factor which increases their mobility and allows treatment of a higher number of patients. This also allows physicians to collaborate in the analysis of medical images and information at the point of care such as a bedside, home, clinic or physician office. These new technologies present growth opportunities for companies in this sector and at present, GE Healthcare is leading the way with a 16% share of the global MIIS market.
