Has anyone broken down the cost of their PACS infrastructure and support, and attributed these cost to examination procedures? If you have, would you mind sharing the process and factors, if not actual figures? I have been asked to achieve this in a matter of days, so Id rather not re-invent the wheel.

The temptation to add surcharges to those that prove the greatest challenge for PACS teams is almost overwhelming. :-)

Hi Tim,

I asked a few of my colleagues at a meeting recently about how their PACS support works. What came out of the discussion was that departments do this very differently. Some PACS admin roles are shared with RIS admin,general admin, radiography, IT or other roles, so even getting a headcount/ wte's doesn't really give the full picture.

With the National Tariff though, I'm not sure how you could add these costs anyway??
