Thread: Patient Update in Modality

  1. Patient Update in Modality

    Hi,

    How should the systems behave during the following scenario.

    1. Modality does a DMWL (Dicom Modality Worklist) Query to the
    Department System Database/Scheduler/Order Filler
    2. Opens a patient from the received DMWL in Acquisition Modality
    3. It displays the selected patient details.
    4. Radiographer updates patient information.

    How should HIS (ADT, Order Placer), RIS (Department System Database/
    Scheduler/Order Filler), PACs (Image manager) reacts to it?

    Or Is it that the Acquisition Modality must not allow the user to
    modify the patient information received from RIS?

    Thanks

    this is not recommended to be done on the modality side. Please have a
    look at the IHE Radiology Technical framework (ihe_tf_rev8-2.pdf chapter
    4.12, find the document at
    http://www.ihe.net/Technical_Framewo....cfm#radiology), you will
    find the integration profile there: The update should be performed on
    the ADT System and propagate.

    To display the new information, the modality should re-query the
    Worklist. If for a Study Instance, the Patient Data as changed, this
    should be updated in the modalities display accordingly.

    I hope this helps.


    Kind regards,


    Peter
