MS-SQL Standard / Enterprise is used for the database. The application is built using .net v4.5.1 technology and works on Windows OS. RADSpa supports MS-SQL 2008 R2, 2012, 2014, 2016 & 2017.
A.RIS-PACS application will be installed in one of the systems with Windows 7/8/10 professional OS. RIS-PACS will be connected to the modality machines to receive the scanned images.
- Once the images are received, based on the automation rule, the radiology studies will get routed automatically to the server.
- Radiologists will be able to access workflow from cloud and images from RIS-PACS application (if it is Hybrid-Cloud solution).
- If the On-premise model is deployed, then the images and the workflow will be accessed from the services available within the premise.
RADSpa has an automated archival and retrieval functionality. This is helpful in Cloud/ Hybrid – Cloud setup, whereas for the on-premise deployment model, all the diagnostic images will be stored in drives configured in the server.
All application works on the secure network (https://) where there are three authentications required to access the report. These are, 1) From RADSpa RIS/PACS application, 2) Login to the mailbox and 3) Using login credentials of the patient portal site.
Images that come to RIS-PACS and then to the main server can store the images for a limited timespan (approx. 30 days) on primary storage. Once the images are purged from primary storage, the image retrieval request will be initiated by the user from dashboard where the images will be auto retrieved from the archival storage. The image icon in RADSpa is shown as ‘A’ in red color indicating the study image is archived. Once the user clicks on the ‘A’ icon, the retrieval request is auto-initiated in the background for retrieving the archived images.
If needed, RADSPa has the capability to share the patient images and report automatically from the application. The moment a radiologist finalizes the report, an auto email is triggered to the patient mail id. A login id (same as the mail id) will be created with a temporary password and the details will be shared through mail with the patient. The patient can further log-in and change the password. Images and Reports can be further shared with any physician for consultation.
Login ID creation is automatic, and no manual intervention is required.
