Image acquisition system for a hospital enterprise

Stephen M. Moore, David E. Beecher

Research output: Contribution to journalConference articlepeer-review


Hospital enterprises are being created through mergers and acquisitions of existing hospitals. One area of interest in the PACS literature has been the integration of information systems and imaging systems. Hospital enterprises with multiple information and imaging systems provide new challenges to the integration task. This paper describes the requirements at the BJC Health System and a testbed system that is designed to acquire images from a number of different modalities and hospitals. This testbed system is integrated with Project Spectrum at BJC which is designed to provide a centralized clinical repository and a single desktop application for physician review of the patient chart (text, lab values, images).
