Attached is a draft
of the profile and format tables for Clinical
Reports from the
Radiology point of view.
It was generated
during the Rad. Tech Cmte meeting earlier
In particular, we
tried to add Data Flow Tables (See pgs 7 & 8)
which map the flow
of data (in this case clinical report related data)
in and out of the
various systems in an example hospital. Some
of the inputs and
outputs are profiled in IHE profiles, but it is not
a pre-requisite for
being shown in the Data Flow tables. It was
a useful exercise to
see how it could all come together and where
the gaps, dangling
wires and duct tape were.
represents how things might look years down
the road. The
table for Springfield General tries to show a "typical"
today, and then we were going to add a table
General one year into a transition plan, 2 years
I handed off editing
at that point so there should be one later version
of this document
which includes the Year 1 and Year
that two areas needing attention (and vendor
transcription and transitioning paper distribution.
It would be
interesting to see a Cardiology, Lab, or ITI take on this.
