Project: Add a Dicom Viewer to LibreHealth EHR

Project Description

LibreHealth is an umbrella organization of digital health products including an electronic medical records system (EHR) and a radiology information system (RIS). These two systems run in parallel to each other, breaking information flow that provides a fragmented view of the patient. Doctors taking care of patients “create orders” that inform the radiology department to perform a Chest Xray on a patient. Radiology images are stored in a different system called PACS, which is a database of images. Currently, there is no way for the doctors to see the imaging information within the electronic medical record system.

Project’s Requirements

Tasks And Features

  • Design a viewer within the EHR record that loads a radiology image by integrating the cornerstone html viewer
  • Implement order entry in the EHR project
  • Generate a modality worklist from the orders entered in the EHR project

I’m interested in this project. How do I begin?

Uh, learn about DICOM images and how the Radiology module handles it, look into FHIR API, and of course pick around in the EHR. Wish I had more advice!
