Q: What data volumes are generated?

A: The amount of space that is required on your Results Database is dependent on several factors:

The volume of cases that will be coded by the PLATOCODE CAC system.

The types of cases (radiology, outpatient surgery etc) that will be coded by the PLATOCODE CAC system.

If you want to store detailed information on coder statistics for reporting purposes.

A simple rule is that a radiology case requires 8KB storage per case and that an outpatient surgery case requires 16KB storage per case. If your facility codes 25000 radiology cases and 12000 outpatient surgery cases per year then the storage requirements for one year's worth of data is:

25,000 * 8KB + 12,000 * 16KB = 392,000KB ~ 382MB per year

If you choose to store detailed information on coder statistics for reporting purposes then this number effectively doubles to 764MB per year.
