In order to make rational decisions for further implementation of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) in Viennese community hospitals, an assessment of the Sozialmedizinisches Zentrum Ost (SMZO) project was launched by the Viennese community hospital financing body.
The aim of the technology assessment was to look at the experiences of day-to-day practice, organizational aspects of, and obstacles to developing the full potential of the PACS installation.
The study analyzes the conditions for employment of digital radiology, gathers the experiences of national and international projects, and presents a view on critical points, from which options for further implementation can be derived.
In the center of interest stood work organization, handling and user attitudes, perceptions of radiologists and clinicians, realism of expectations regarding economic efficiency, technical aspects, and influence of quality of medical care.
