London, United Kingdom (PressExposure) August 26, 2009 -- Teleradiology is increasingly used by hospitals and institutions to gain accessibility of specialists and sub-specialists (in remote locations) for radiology services.
According to TechNavio, âTechnological advances and requirement to lower the healthcare costs have encouraged the healthcare services providers to outsource the diagnosis of radiology images to developing and low-cost countries. Also, the ease of entry for the new entrants in the teleradiology market has resulted in a higher competition in the market, and a greater number of teleradiology service providers.â
Furthermore, one of the TechNavio analysts declares âHealthcare organizations are looking to make use of technology to improve their operational efficiency. Among other factors, the rapidly increasing healthcare costs are encouraging the healthcare management to adopt teleradiology for their hospitals and institutions. A large number of hospitals are moving towards digitalization, with the introduction of advanced technologies. This would lead to easier adaptability of teleradiology technologies and a bigger market for the teleradiology equipment, software, and services.â
TechNavio analysts also state, âAlong with various growth drivers, the teleradiology industry also faces several barriers and challenges. Healthcare organizations in some developing nations lack the basic IT infrastructure to support the teleradiology transmitting stations; thus, increasing the investments required for teleradiology equipment installations.â
