METHODS We analyzed 8 yr data (1999-2006) of historical events, trends of participating laboratories, and scores according to the impact of the question to(More)
We have developed and implemented an efficient method of managing routine patient care information as a programmable group order protocol. The purpose of protocol is to minimize a labor-intensive manual computer interaction by grouping clinically related routine orders as a single entity, thus to greatly speed up the time taken for manual entry such as(More)
In order to elucidate employees satisfaction levels in using graphic user interface. (GUI) in a laboratory information system (LIS), users attitudes toward GUI versus CUI. (Character User Interface) in a similar LIS were surveyed one month after implementing upgraded version of LIS in a tertiary care university hospital laboratory. The outcome of the study(More)
The PACS system built and used in hospitals nowadays has quite significant overload on its central server because of both treatment of very large data and full management of medical images. We suggest a distributed communication and management methodology using PC to PC multicasting strategy for efficient management of medical images produced by DICOM(More)
