Market Overview

Declining Costs of RIS-PACS Encourage their Adoption by Low and Mid-tier Hospitals

RIS-PACS used to be adopted exclusively by the top-tier hospitals in the 1990s because they were prohibitively expensive to the smaller ones. However, with the decline in costs and advancements in applications, smaller hospitals have begun to implement them in various medical disciplines such as cardiology, dentistry, and orthopedics. Healthcare service providers eagerness to be competitive in the market, improve their facility, and better manage their imaging is a huge boost to the RIS-PACS market, says the analyst of this research. There is a significant increase in the number of patients, while there is not enough medical staff to attend to them. This scenario has encouraged hospitals to automate their functions to ease the burden on their medical personnel. The proliferation of sophisticated medical devices compels hospitals to deploy advanced PACS to enable the seamless exchange of information. Furthermore, there is a rapidly rising demand for storage, as more devices produce images in the digital format.

However, security issues regarding the safe management and storage of digital images are a concern for every healthcare service provider. Large hospitals may be more interested in implementing enterprise PACS that serve every department rather than focusing only on RIS-PACS. In such a scenario, global vendors offering various end-to-end products and services to support the whole value chain will have an edge in the total market. All the markets in Southeast Asia have considerable potential, regardless of their maturity. While the Malaysian and Thai RIS-PACS markets are in their growth stage with considerable growth potential, the Singaporean market is mature and has fewer healthcare service providers. Nevertheless, healthcare service providers in this country are keen to upgrade to the best products and services. The Singapore Government is moving toward implementing a nationwide electronic health record (EHR), notes the analyst. Furthermore, the governments of Singapore, Thailand, and Malaysia are encouraging the provision of value-added services to make available the best healthcare services in hospitals.
