Paper Abstract

UCLA is in the process of building a new acute-care hospital due to open in 2005 with the intent to operate fully digitally. The strategic planning for this hospital is based on a set of new paradigms: wider and more efficient access to all information sources, enterprise-wide data repository, usage of thin-client technology and wide usage generic information-appliances and wireless devices allowing access to information from anywhere in the hospital. These new paradigms required significant changes from traditional information technology architecture in particular in workflow management of large quantities of imaging data.
