Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


For institutions with existing radiology information system (RIS), laboratory information system (LIS), hospital information system (HIS), and picture archiving and communications system (PACS), opportunities exist to reduce the cost and complexity of clinical information system (CIS) implementation, given that the aim is to achieve single-point-of-access integration to radiology images, reports, and laboratory results. Leveraging existing interfaces can make a Universal Clinical Desktop (UCD) relatively straight-forward, as opposed to a full CIS. Though this does not provide such facilities as data mining access, nor retrospective analysis, it would provide many institutions a significant fraction of the clinical utility of a full CIS.
