Paper Abstract

The Dutch PACS project is a cooperation of the Utrecht University Hospital, BAZIS Hospital Information Systems group, and Philips. In this paper the impact on the organization of logistic procedures within a diagnostic imaging department will be described, as a part of the Dutch PACS project at the Utrecht University Hospital, the clinical evaluation (as described previously in SPIE proc. #767 and #626). A detailed analysis was carried out regarding image logistics, object flow (patients, images, request forms etc.) and working procedures of all personal involved. Goal is to compare the results of these studies with similar data after the introduction of a complete PACS working procedure for the target ward and to find design parameters for the intrinsic image management system. Furthermore, the data are used to establish the efficiency of the new situation. The results of this study are described in detail per parameter.
