27 June 1988 HIS-PACS Coupling: First Experiences
Author Affiliations +
A first step has been made towards one of the ultimate goals of the so-called IMAGIS projects: the realization of a working PACS integrated with a Hospital Information System. This HIS-PACS coupling is part Of the Dutch Pacs project, a national PACS development program, supported by the Dutch Society of Radiology and funded by the Dutch government. This development is a cooperative effort of BAZIS (the Dutch Development and Support Group of the Hospital Information System 'ZIS'), the Utrecht University Hospital (AZU) and Philips International (Product Division Medical Systems) since 1986. In order to have a prototype HIS-PACS combination available as soon as possible, the three partners mentioned agreed on using a stepwise approach for carrying out the coupling project. For the first phase of the project we have restricted ourselves to: 1. the coupling of a specific HIS (BAZIS/ZIS) to a specific PACS (Philips/MARCOM) 2. only the in-patients of a particular ward of Internal Medicine 3. only one-way dataflow: from HIS to PACS, using a relatively slow link. This paper describes design criteria, technical solution chosen, message format and experimental set-up.
