Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Medical Image Management Market

Since its outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread in too many countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency. COVID-19 is affecting the global economy mainly in three main ways: by directly affecting production and demand, by creating supply chain and market disruption, and by its financial impact on firms and financial markets. With the unavailability of treatment, rise in cases, limited resources, and vulnerability of the medical staff of catching the virus, the healthcare sector is struggling to deal with the pandemic situation.

In order to deal with the issue, the governments are stepping up to maintain the social distancing. Due to this, patients are not able to meet their family or doctors are not able to reach out to patients in order to maintain safety. For this, vendors in this market are focusing on providing teleradiology solutions to healthcare facilities. Teleradiology allows radiologists to read images and generate reports seamlessly same as that of hospital onsite workstations. Through teleradiology, radiologists can continue to provide interpretations and communicate with referring physicians just as they would by being in the hospital, but without the contact. The cloud-based workstations and mobile applications allow radiologists and physicians to access diagnosis, reports, and images irrespective of their location via cloud-based PACS. This allows both radiologists and physicians to provide efficient care for the patient while reducing the risk of spreading or contracting COVID-19. The application of teleradiology platform supported by PACS center is currently in use in Kazakhstan and it is being used for COVID-19 identification in medical imaging studies. The platform is easily integrated with iMedHub (, a decision support system that provides national services for hospitals and doctors helping the remote diagnosis of lung diseases. Anyone can upload an x-ray of the lungs and get a neural network diagnostic result in a few seconds. During the fight against coronavirus, this tool was integrated with the PACS center platform and it is being used in the largest coronavirus control hospitals in Almaty, Kazakhstan. As the COVID-19 has specific site of infection, the demand for related teleradiology solutions is increasing.
