The DICOM Worklist Manager is a new feature that allows communication between the RIS and facility modalities, such as CT, MRI, or X-ray machines. The DICOM Worklist Manager closes the gap between the modalities and the RIS, enhancing the system’s ability to manage the daily workflow.
The DICOM Worklist Manager provides many features, such as:
Eliminates double-entry of patient information from RISynergy® to the modality
Helps eliminate mistakes, such as entering the wrong patient information or performing the wrong examinations
No license restriction on the number of modalities
Optional update of RISynergy visit information
The server is “Powered by PervasiveSQL”
No “broker” is required, meaning that no translation from HL7 is used. The Worklist
Manager is an “all DICOM” solution.
DICOM requests/responses can be seen on-screen in real-time
The ability to “listen” on multiple TCP/IP ports
The server allows for a configurable list of valid modality IP addresses from which requests will be accepted
The ability to associate a name with each modality (via IP address)
Each modality can be assigned one or more valid Visit Types, such as IP, OP or ER for which it can receive responses; if no Visit filter is assigned, all Visit Types will be returned
If Branch Codes are used, a branch filter may be enabled
All requests and results can be logged at 2 levels, both RISynergy file data and DICOM tag level, to separate files
