Tool looks to map, monitor, manage DICOM devices
HealthImaging.com, June 3, 2008
As DICOM-compliant devices proliferate across a healthcare information system, their installation and monitoring becomes problematic for PACS administrators. This is because these devices are often located outside the radiology department, and in some cases are dispersed beyond the physical boundaries of the administrator's institution. DICOM devices also often require time-consuming, multi-vendor coordination and require a complex network of inter-dependency among the technologies, according to Harshad N. Puppalwar, a solutions architect and domain specialist at Sarasota, FL-based CitiusTech. Puppalwar has proposed a solution that collects data from currently available technologies and healthcare standards to achieve its goals.
