Abstract :

It is a necessity to develop an integrated, enterprise-wide medical imaging and clinical information strategy. Specialty departments such as radiology, cardiology, obstetrics, pathology and dermatology are generating images and disparate, unstructured clinical information and storing it in silos. Healthcare organizations need to implement a comprehensive clinical information strategy to capture, view, share and archive images and other unstructured data alongside their structured content. Clinicians need easy access to this information from multiple types of devices including mobile technologies. Traditionally, integrated medical imaging and clinical information solutions were developed independently for departments such as radiology and cardiology. It was quickly determined that a wide array of other departments could benefit from these integrated solutions. Soon data repository silos of clinical information emerged presenting inefficient process challenges for clinicians. Combining digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) archives within the enterprise content management (ECM) solution turns the challenge into an opportunity as it helps the organization establish a clinical information strategy to capture, view, share and archive images and information in order to improve patient care. By combining the DICOM archives with ECM, the organization can improve operational and business process efficiencies. This integrated advanced clinical information solution provides a single point of access to DICOM and non-DICOM content available without the need to log into different systems or reselect the patient. Taking this a step further and connecting the DICOM archive and ECM solution to the organization├ó┬?┬?s electronic health record (EHR) provides a more comprehensive view of the patient record with access to patient and episodic documentation thus improving the quality and continuity of patient care.
