Paper Abstract

Since 1977, the Radiology Operations Management Computer System has been in operation at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP). This comprehensive system features registration and scheduling, file room management, automated interpretation reporting, management reporting, patient tracking, accounting and automated teaching file. In 1980, a group of non-profit institutions joined together in a consortium to develop the next generation radiology management system and to take advantage of the collective experience and knowledge of the group while using the HUP system as a model. Although the HUP Picture Archival and Communication System (PACS) was developed independently from this management system, their interdependence is important and will be discussed.
