I have been working at times for a few years with a small hospital with a Bahmni implementation. At the hospital we are using the PACS integration with the Bahmni system. The PACS integration has been customized in some ways, and I’ve put together a document/page describing some things about this implementation.
The basic changes we made are:
- have Bahmni query the PACS server directly (via DICOM) to list patient PACS images
- provide a mechanism for a Radiologist to add an observation note associated with an external PACS image
The page is here: pacs-integration-page
I wanted to post the page here in order to get feedback, and hopefully to contribute to ideas about how PACS integration is done in OpenMRS/Bahmni. It is also helpful for us just to have a reminder about how the PACS integration system works in general as there are there are some things that took some time to get an understanding of.
