Abstract

Disparate computer-based information systems such as hospital information systems (HIS), radiology information systems (RIS), and picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) have been introduced into radiology departments at various times to meet specific operational objectives. Typically, these systems are implemented without an integration strategy. Systems integration, which optimizes integrity of data and labor savings, can be achieved by two general approaches. The first links the HIS to the PACS; the second involves interlinking of the HIS, RIS, and PACS, with the RIS as the central controlling system. Standardization in hardware, operating systems, and data base formats--which will allow true integration--is being addressed nationally and worldwide. Operational issues to resolve include ways to increase network capacity, control of data flow, and strategies for dealing with downtime. In the future, systems integration will enable prefetching, two-way interfaces, interfaces with digital dictation systems, and improved linkages with external digital input devices.
