IHE Profile Proposal (Brief)

<Delete everything in italics and angle brackets and replace with real text>

1. Proposed Profile: Imaging Acquisition Workflow - Radiology

  • Proposal Editor: Chris Lindop/Tony Palmer/Nerve Hoehn
  • Date: N/A (Wiki keeps history)
  • Version: N/A (Wiki keeps history)
  • Domain: Radiology and Other Imaging Acquisition Domains

2. The Problem

The Scheduled Workflow Integration Profile pioneered the use cases for integrating Systems which specialized in Order Placement/Department Scheduling Image Management and Image Acquisition Systems (i.e. CT, MR, US, etc) with DICOM MPPS. At this time, it was the current “state of integration” for integration order placers with order fillers. While with Image Managers, the value proposition is clear. PPS provides a mechanism for Image Managers to associate images acquired by modalities with procedures scheduled by Radiology Information Systems. The value for Radiology Information Systems is less clear. The value provided is minimal and insufficient for a RIS to fully automate workflow based solely on a MPPS message coming from a RIS.

3. Key Use Case

<Describe a short use case scenario from the user perspective. The use case should demonstrate the integration/workflow problem.>

<Feel free to add a second use case scenario demonstrating how it “should” work. Try to indicate the people/systems, the tasks they are doing, the information they need, and hopefully where the information should come from.>

4. Standards & Systems

<List existing systems that are/could be involved in the problem/solution.>

<If known, list standards which might be relevant to the solution>

5. Discussion

<Indicate why IHE would be a good venue to solve the problem and what you think IHE should do to solve it.>

<Try to keep the proposal to 1 or at most 2 pages>
