Radiology information systems are the central hub for the management of electronic images, but they should be able to perform far more than just that. There is also image interpretation and and procedure billing to be considered. Some of the other functions that should be included in a radiology information system (RIS) might also be patient scheduling, resource management, examination performance, results distribution. The RIS also needs to integrate with a PACS system, which requires additional practice management workflow coordination. The value of electronic imaging and picture archiving and communication has always hinged on workflow efficiency. Because total, cross-platform workflow efficiency is the primary objective, PACS and RIS are interdependent systems. Optimal efficiency for radiology departments occurs when PACS and RIS are configured to seamlessly share information with one another. That’s why Novarad developed the Novarad radiology information system (NovaRIS). NovaRIS performs just they way radiology departments need an RIS to perform. The smokestack effect went out with the industrial revolution. In the information age, there is no reason why radiology department workflow should be modeled after that type of a closed system.
