Abstract Radiology Reporting forms the basis for most clinical diagnosis thereby making it a very important sector in the clinical eco-system. The purpose of this project description is to give an overview of the day-to-day activity of Radiologists and their interactions with other parts of the Healthcare delivery eco-system. It is common knowledge that we currently do not have any open-source radiology module available for radiology reporting, in this project, we would build on the current limitations of the vendor-based radiology reporting-focused applications and develop a customizable and comprehensive software solution to be available for both clinical and research purposes. Intended Users Radiologists, Staff and Trainee Project Developer • @teleivo Project Managers • @judywawira • @sunbiz Objectives In the process of developing the framework for radiology reporting, we would work towards achieving the following: • Develop an interface for the reporting activity. • Integrate with existing applications that support text-editing, voice recognition etc. • Provide the template reusability functionality. • Provide functionality to save reporting to resumed • Give access and reports approval privileges based on hierarchy (Trainee and Staff) • Integrate with an existing communication system that supports both texts and file transfer. • Provide application customization privileges to users based on their needs.
