Overview

  • The technology for acquiring, storing, retrieving, displaying, and distributing images has advanced dramatically in recent years. The push is toward enterprise-wide image management solutions, where digital images from radiology, cardiology, are seamlessly linked with information from clinical information systems and other databases, and they are accessed seamlessly from a single point of end-user interaction
  • Support clinical and medical patient care activities in the hospital
  • Administer the hospital’s daily business transactions (financial, personnel, payroll, bed census, etc.)
  • Evaluate hospital performances and costs, and project the long-term forecast
  • HIS provides automation for such activities starts from patient registration, admission, and patient Accounting. It also provides online access to patient clinical results (e.g. laboratory, pathology, microbiology, pharmacy, and radiology)
  • The system broadcasts in real time the patient Demographics, and when it encounters information with the HL7 standard or DICOM standard
  • One of the earliest issues that plagued the progress of HIS / PACS integration was a matter of language. Health-care information systems communicate using a standard protocol Health Level-7 (Hl7), which carries patient data between billing and information systems
  • In more current sophisticated implementations, acquisition modalities are able to receive patient and study-related data from the HIS or RIS.
  • In close parallel, imaging systems, including radiology imaging modalities – e.g., computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and PACS all employ the Digital Communications in Medicine Standard (DICOM) to communicate information related to digital images

Broker Solutions

  • To solve the language barrier, a translation was needed between HL7 and DICOM. Enter the broker: a software and hardware device that accepts HL7 messages from the RIS then translates, or maps, the data to produce DICOM messages for transmission to the PACS
  • With RIS information now available electronically, PACS and modalities could accept RIS Technologist workflow requires patient and exam information from the RIS to flow to the modality
  • The broker provides support for this by taking advantage of the DICOM Modality Work list (DMWL). Scheduling messages are transmitted from the RIS to the broker and stored
  • The technologist is then able to request the list of scheduled studies by sending a query from the modality to the broker using the DMWL service. The result of the query would, in effect, provide a list of technologists’ “work to do”
