Description & Coverage
Description:

In the age of increasing reliance on data and the importance of sensitive information, applications and technologies have arisen to appropriately deal with assuring the security of medical informatics and healthcare administration functions. In order for technology to progress, new systems are being installed globally to address this issue.

Governance of Picture Archiving and Communications Systems: Data Security and Quality Management of Filmless Radiology examines information security management systems for the facilitation of picture archiving and communication systems (PACS). This valuable contribution to data security and quality management literature provides a comprehensive guide for all aspects of the implementation of PACS for the enhancement of modern practices in radiology.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Customer-oriented PACS
  • Filmless radiology
  • High availability technologies for PACS
  • Implementation of ISMS
  • Information Security Management
  • PACS failure modes and effects
  • PACS key quality dimensions
  • PACS monitoring
  • PACS network flow control
  • PACS reliability
  • PACS total quality management
  • Picture archiving and communications systems
Reviews & Statements

This book explains the key techniques for effective governance of a PACS in filmless radiology operation.

– Carrison K.S. Tong, Pamela Youde Nethersole Eastern Hospital, Hong Kong

This comprehensive guide focuses on strategic planning and guidelines ranging from selection and ordering to cataloging, Web user support, picture archiving, communication systems, implementation of information in a variety of heritage systems, quality control, and quality assurance.
