Today most medical centers use information systems (HIS – Hospital Information Systems or RIS – Radiology Information Systems), storing patients demographics and exams scheduling information. These data are then required during the image acquisition phase at the acquisition modality, since digital acquisition devices must know all relevant patient and study information to store them into the digital images they produce.
Instead of requesting the technician to manually re-enter patient’s demographics on the modality’s console, the DICOM modality worklist service allows for an automated, reliable, error-free transfer of the information stored in the HIS/RIS directly to the modality, in a standard way which is supported by almost all manufacturers of digital DICOM modalities. DICOMMod has been expressly designed to implement this DICOM service.
If your HIS/RIS already manages scheduling of diagnostic exams, but doesn’t support the DICOM modality worklist service, then DICOMMod is the perfect add-on to simplify and improve your workflow. DICOMMod will easily integrate with your HIS/RIS, and will add support for DICOM modality worklist service, thus enabling a fully automated and error-free transfer of patient and exam data from your HIS/RIS to modalities.
Integration between your HIS/RIS and DICOMMod happens at the database level. DICOMMod will connect to your existing database containing exams scheduling information, and after a simple configuration it will be able to extract the required information, matching modalities’ queries, and to return relevant data to modalities through the DICOM modality worklist protocol.
