Division of Imaging Sciences
Section of Informatics
The Division of Informatics plans, implements, and provides operational support for the Department of Radiology's clinical information systems.
Radiology Information System (RIS)
Our department at Froedtert Hospital currently uses the Radiant RIS from Epic Systems to manage order entry, patient scheduling, exam and film tracking, reporting, and billing.
Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS)
The department has implemented the McKesson Horizon Medical Imaging PACS, which provides state-of-the-art image storage and display functionality. Currently, all imaging examinations performed in the department -- except mammography -- are stored on PACS.
All examinations from January 2003 forward are maintained in "active" memory on a Redundant Array of Inexpensive Disks (RAID) server.
Integration with Enterprise Systems
The department supports interfaces of its systems with enterprise-wide clinical information system for order entry, results reporting, laboratory results, and inpatient and outpatient medical records.
