Software, Picture Archiving and Communication System

Definition : Software designed to manage/operate picture archiving and communication systems (PACS) intended for clinical and patient data management. This software is intended to work with one or a few models of hospital PACS, usually supplied by the same manufacturer. The software performs a variety of algorithms to process the data, usually in specific areas or particular procedures or throughout the facility. This software permits a film-less environment in reading rooms and physician offices. PACS software is available as part of the complete system or as a separate component; the software may be modified (i.e., through the release of modified versions) during the life of the system by releasing updated versions. Dedicated PACS software intended for particular applications, such as radiology, cardiology, and endoscopy is also available.
