The ATNA Radiology profile specifies basic security measures that can help protect the confidentiality of patient information as part of an institution's overall security policies and procedures. ATNA provides institutions with a mechanism to consolidate audit trail events on user activity across several imaging and information systems throughout the enterprise systems interconnected in a secure manner.

The ATNA Radiology profile specifies basic security measures that protects patient confidentiality in an imaging environment.<Tell a user in one sentence what the profile is about (including the acronym) so they can decide if they're on the right page (and copy this one sentence description into the Profiles page as well), e.g. Scheduled Workflow (SWF) integrates ordering, scheduling, imaging acquisition, storage and viewing for Radiology exams. >



<Describe the profile in about a paragraph using user-oriented language.>

<Insert a simple graphic that, at a glance, gives an impression of what the profile is about. E.g. a graphic of a hospital, a clinic, and a lab with patient records moving between them. Do not use an actor/transaction diagram here.>

<See Help - Tips and Tricks for details on inserting an image/graphic.>


<List the key benefits the profile provides (e.g. error reduction, increased throughput) and how they come about (e.g. SWF reduces patient errors due to mistyped demographics at the modality by transfering demographics electronically from the Order Filler).>


<A few paragraphs, if appropriate, providing more details (in user-speak, not tech-speak) on what the profile does and how it works.>

Systems Affected

<List (in user terms) the types of systems they might expect to have implemented actors from this profile, e.g. RIS, PACS, HIS, CAD Workstation, etc. >

Actors & Transactions:

<Insert an actor-transaction diagram, and or list of Content Definitions>


Profile Status: Final Text <Replace "Final Text" with "Trial Implementation" or "Public Comment" as appropriate.>
