Paper Abstract

This paper will discuss the functional requirements for interfacing Picture Archiving and Communications Systems (PACS) to today's radiology information systems (RIS). It is clear from the operational modeling study done at UNC, that a fully functional PACS will require the use of RIS data. For example, patient ID, scheduling, and information tracking are usually part of a RIS and must be available to the PACS. Similarly, the image tracking and index capabilities of the PACS will be used by the RIS. As part of our modeling data flow analysis research program, we have identified a number of these interactions. The interface points will be identified and discussed with emphasis on the operational impact of such an interface and efficiencies likely to be provided.
