DICOM XDS Repository - Archive all Strategy
Combining a DICOM and XDS archive into a single
repository for images and documents across an enterprise.
PACS has been seen as large proprietary data silos of DICOM images. While,
information systems (RIS, CIS, Ordercomms, Clinical letters system, Discharge
summary system, E-Prescribing etc) all hold digital information in independent
data silos, due to lack of document standards. The only way for clinician
to access the full clinical history of a patient is by looking at paper notes,
where the documents are printed and organised for each patient.
Cross-Enterprise Document Sharing (XDS) provides a document standard that is
changing the EPR world completely. Information systems will create the
documents and send them off for storage and display.
The other big advantage is we are currently struggle with old outdated
information systems which are difficult to remove and replace. By adopting XDS
standards with a Vendor Neutral PACS, information systems and PACS will send
all data to the XDS repository and hence, one will find it as easy to replace
an information system or PACS as it is to replace a CT/MRI scanner.
The archive all strategy of XDS provides a means of providing an EPR, and
replacing the paper notes similarly to how PACS replaced the film packet. XDS
connects all information systems even currently existing Information systems.
We see this as a huge advantage and cost savings to being able to deploying
regional repositories that are both Vendor Neutral PACS repositories and XDS
repositories on the same infrastructure with an internationally accepted
standard. Please contact KellerMed
