New Ris Module to Enables GPS to Directly Book Patient X-Ray Exams
Care stream Health and the San Salvatore Hospital in the Province of L’Aquila in the Abruzzo Region of Italy, are developing a module for a CARESTREAM Radiology Information System (RIS). This will allow General Practitioners within the region to directly book digital X-ray examinations for their patients and receive the results back on their PC. The first project of its kind in Italy, a pilot study is currently underway involving 60 GPs with plans to have the system fully operational with 90 doctors by the middle of 2009.
The RIS module is developed to enable each patient to be paired with the referring physician and provide the hospital with relevant data about all examination requests.
