Paper Abstract

Improved presentation of the results of Diagnostic Medical Procedures must improve the communication of relevant information to the requesting clinician and so should improve the quality of healthcare. Facilities are now available to enable the preparation of Multimedia Medical Reports. Conventional reports are frequently accompanied by relevant Procedure Products, such as images and curves. Benefit should be obtained if audible and visible annotation is included. Project Team 34 of CEN/TC251 Draft First Working Document provides an overview of the use of Health Care Multimedia Reports. The aim of this paper is to summarize the needs for the creation, modification and presentation of Multimedia Reports, to describe a specific generic data structure for Procedure Product data, to describe one possible model for the Multimedia Report record and to discus the requirements for Multimedia Report authoring tools and presentation systems.
