Shimadzu Review 76[3・4] (2020.1)


Conventionally, electronic medical record systems have been adopted by medical facilities not only for electronically saving medical treatment records, biopsy results, X-ray and endoscopic image information, and various documents gener-ated within hospitals, for example, and for searching or viewing such information based on search parameters, but also because it enables secondary uses for the saved and generated data, such as for accounting, medical fee calculation, and business analysis. However, in recent years, electronic medical record systems are becoming an essential tool for flexibly interconnecting the increasingly extensive range of medical equipment and support systems offered by various companies, and for managing administrative operations as a central information management system. This article describes the enhancements to such functionality made by the authors, including expanded image viewer diagnostic imaging functionali-ty, support for modality worklist management, improved/expanded interconnectivity between patient records and diagnos-tic imaging systems, functionality developed for supporting rehabilitation applications, and also expanded functionality of the SimCLINIC T3α XLink package that enables more efficient medical administrative operations.
