Paper Abstract

The Cost Analysis Model for Digital Imaging Networks (CAMDIN) is a life cycle cost analysis model of the financial impact of PACS technology upon the radiology department at Georgetown University Hospital. The model (which uses the Javelin Plus economic modeling package with data from Georgetown University Hospital and AT&T's CommView system) follows the costs and revenues within radiology both with and without the PACS network. CAMDIN guides the user in building a model tailored to an individual radiology department. It allows for sensitivity studies and produces practical results in several levels of detail clearly and quickly. Sensitivity studies have been performed on this system to determine the relative weights of several factors of PACS implementation.
