INTEROPERABILITY: ADVANCED SOLUTIONS TO COMMON ISSUES IN RADIOLOGY
Many of the current issues in medical imaging result from the lack of interoperability between formats and systems. Depending on configurations, workflows or even local standards, these issues can have a negative influence on the expected performance of the radiology department.
We offer state-of-the-art solutions to face these challenges and increase the efficiency of the radiological workflow.
Thanks to the expertise gained from creating state-of-the-art features for some of the most demanding projects in medical imaging, we are able to think “outside the box” and offer specialized solutions to complicated and specific problems. The following list shows a few of the many challenges for which we have created solutions:
When hospitals share images, the demographic data is often incorrectly matched by the receiving system, thus creating a new patient to whom no existing images can be assigned (a common issue in countries without standard Patient IDs).
Output: Result: When a object from an external PACS arrives, our solution queries the master patient index of a connected HIS by HL7 (MPI) for the target patient ID and accession number. It then adjusts the dataset with the target patient ID and accession number and forwards the data to the target PACS. If the images return to the first PACS, the original information is still available.
Image requests from a HIS to an external PACS can return empty, even if the required images are available in the system.
Output: Result: We can query the external PACS using different search criteria until it matches the proper image(s). They are sent to the target PACS with adapted DICOM Tags (e.g.accession number or patient ID).
If you have a special challenge with no current solution, feel free to contact us with a brief description of your project and its requirements. We will be glad to begin a discussion of the possibilities that lie ahead.
