PACS Integration and Support

About the Feature

Bahmni provides the ability to integrate with PACS to send radiology orders and access fulfillments (radiology images) via a link to the DICOM web viewer. The integration with PACS has two main functions :
  1. Send the radiology order created in Bahmni to PACS server.
  2. Provide the ability to view the image stored in PACS against the corresponding radiology order. 

Used By

The orders are usually placed by doctors and sometimes by other staff on behalf of the doctor based on pre-decided protocols. The radiology images are seen by Doctors for diagnostic purposes.

How is it Used?

Step 1: Place the Radiology Order

Select an option from the radiology Orders section of the Orders Tab. This will send the radiology order to the PACS server.
