System Management is an extremely difficult area for a radiology practice. It is common place for the support of a system to be a component of a technical (MIT) or office manager’s role – on top of their current duties. This often leads to a sub-optimal, poorly managed or vendor-reliant systems.
As “mission-critical” to the operation of your practice, it is essential that the implemented Radiology system be managed and maintained. This ensures that the system can cope with future development, growth, change in the IT arena (hardware, network and software developments) whilst still meeting your day-to-day needs.
Appropriate system management is also essential for the planning of upgrades (storage and software), utilisation by end-users (staff and referrers), and connection of new modalities. Inter-vendor liaison and reduction in anomalies (ensuring all cases are able to be reported) are also core components of this service.
