Radiology Information System

A full featured Radiology Information System

Radiology Information System 'MediRIS'

Radiology Information System ‘MediRIS’ is a full featured information system managing all data, procedures and workflow of radiological laboratories. ‘MediRIS’ offers capabilities such as patients registration, exams ordering, scheduling, work list generation, radiology templates and reporting and PACS interoperability via HL7 messages.

The objective is to make the work of radiologists and radiographers more effective. Moreover to obtain tangible benefit improving both cost benefit ratio and quality of services.


The RIS system ‘MediRIS’ improves the daily workflow and increases the efficiency of the staff in radiology departments. It can be seamlessly integrated (using protocols such as HL7) with the picture archiving and communication system (PACS). In addition interoperates with the hospital ERP or HIS system for exchanging patient information. In that way it provides the best possible workflow optimisation with the minimum input.

Radiology Information System ‘MediRIS’ guarantees an high level of interoperability with PACS provided by third party companies. So, it offers a better patient management within Radiology department. Finally it handles all the patient and tests data through radiology workflow, from scheduling medical examination to reporting.


In complex Healthcare Organizations interoperability with existing systems, is of prime importance.

Features of RIS system 'MediRIS'


Orders and scheduling

  • Manages the orders entered manually or received automatically from HIS/ERP,  via HL7.
  • Books appointments, with the capability of access from clinics or physicians.
  • Supports DICOM work list server, automating the transfer of patient’s data from HIS/RIS to modalities.

Patient Arrival & Registration

  • Patient registration including family medical history with manual or automatic (via HL7) entry.
  • Capability of documents attachment (pdf format) related to the exam (i.e. previous results from a different radiology lab).
  • Worklist automatically updated with pending exam orders.

Patient Examination

  • Availability to the technologist of patient data, history and alerts.
  • Inclusion of comments in the exam (use of consumables, radiation dose, exam duration, etc).

Reporting and Transcription

  • Reporting can be completed by the radiologist with typing.
  • Digital dictation and speech recognition options are available.
  • Transcription procedure is also supported.
  • Use of custom templates minimises user input.
  • Generation of statistical reports for a single patient, group of patients or particular procedure.

Approval and Distribution

  • Final approval of reports by authorised radiologist.
  • Distribution of report in printed or electronic form.
  • Radiologists have access to the results through web browsers (PCs or mobile devices).
  • Use of electronic signature.


Uses market standards to:

  • interoperate with Hospital Information System (HIS)
  • integrate medical equipment (DICOM modality worklist and DICOM mpps)
  • support HL7 connection to PACS systems

Automatic synchronisation between RIS and PACS

Finally, it supports an automatic bidirectional synchronisation between RIS and PACS. That is when the radiologist switches to one patient either in PACS or RIS, then the second screen automatically shows the relevant data, according to the selected patient at the first screen. Above all, this is a huge advantage to the daily effort of radiologists, avoiding double selection of the same patient and his examination on both RIS and PACS system.
