Radiology Information System for Data Management in Radiology Clinics and Imaging Centers
Data management is a complicated process as information moves from reception to imaging technologist, to radiologist, and then delivered back to the referring physician. Work flow and information management is difficult because large number of images need to be archived, retrieved and distributed.
Radiology clinics and imaging centers require networked radiology software platform to store, manipulate and distribute patient radiological data and imagery. The entire system consists of patient tracking, scheduling, reporting and image tracking. This radiology software platform is not only used for scheduling, registration and workflow management but also for billing, EDI, custom reporting and collections. This software tool includes digital dictation, transcription, and mammography tracking. This system can be used with other systems or it can be customized to suit the specific requirements and workflow.
The speed and flexibility of the software system is important for managing the entire process. Some of the basic features of a radiology information system are
patient registration and scheduling, patient list management, workflow management, modality and material management, technical files creation, request and document scanning as well as delivery including faxing and e-mailing of clinical reports.
Some of the common benefits of Radiology Information System are:
Radiology Information System is a complete management system and an electronic web-based application that consolidates the medical center’s information base.
