Abstract

The New York Hospital-Cornell Medical Center, Manhattan: a 1,242-licensed bed voluntary non-profit hospital.

SOLUTION: Use a picture archiving communications system (PACS) to transmit, store and archive digital images. RESULTS: Increased staff efficiencies, improved patient care and reduced costs. KEYS TO SUCCESS: "Many years of planning and a full commitment from the staff."
