Informatics In Medical Imaging

Medical imaging informatics is a field in radiology that is a subset of medical informatics concerned with the generation, storage, processing, and overall management of medical images. Imaging informatics for healthcare can include developing and implementing information technology for medical imaging. Healthcare interoperability enables multiple technology solutions in radiology and diagnostics to work cohesively and empower doctors to provide care services. Such platforms form a part of the wider hospital systems in which constituent components communicate seamlessly through electronic data exchange.

A Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) is a platform that enables hospitals and clinics to store and transmit medical images digitally. The existence of a PACS eliminates the need for handling physical images and reports, improving the security and management of the images while making HIPAA compliance easier for organizations. Thanks to adopting cloud computing in healthcare, OSP can build a PACS solution, enabling hospitals to store all images remotely. This type of platform for informatics in medical imaging is necessary to handle the growing volume of medical images. Moreover, such medical informatics platforms enable healthcare analytics solutions to assess the images and provide valuable insights.   

Radiology information systems (RIS) are a type of healthcare provider solution used to manage radiology workflows. It is primarily used for managing data generated from medical imaging and is often integrated with wider hospital information systems, but used in radiology departments. This type of medical imaging software streamlines the processes surrounding imaging and the generation, storage, and sharing of corresponding reports. OSP can build custom RIS platforms for hospitals and integrate them with electronic health records to facilitate rapid retrieval and assessment of medical images.    

Since it can be incorporated with larger hospital information systems, RIS platforms can make up effective integrated healthcare systems. A RIS bolsters integrated care management by enabling multiple providers to exchange medical images quickly and securely.    

Custom healthcare solutions for image processing can assess medical images rapidly and highlight anomalies with a high degree of accuracy. It is a form of clinical data analytics that can make up for the absence of experienced specialists and provide reliable diagnoses. OSP can design and develop medical imaging system solutions that leverage healthcare automation and process many images to boost the speed and accuracy of diagnosis. Such a solution will be able to detect tumors and other anomalies even in their early stages, which doctors are likely to miss. Clinical informatics solutions for medical images are a powerful diagnostic tool that ultimately improves physicians’ decision-making.  

Teleradiology is a platform used in medical imaging informatics for communicating radiological images among providers. Using this, doctors at one hospital or clinic can carry out radiological imaging of a patient and share the same with experts at another location. OSP can build such a platform to enable providers at distant, rural clinics to share images with experts situated in large hospitals. Doing so helps compensate for the shortage of doctors in underserved communities and improves access to specialist care. Such a platform enables actionable medical informatics by specialists irrespective of geographical location, enabling better population health management by policymakers.     

Computer-aided detection is a type of medical imaging informatics software that doctors use to interpret radiological images. Medical imaging technology reveals a significant amount of information about a patient that doctors need to process. OSP can build computer-aided detection solutions for hospitals and clinics to assist with clinical decision-making and maximize the speed of diagnosis. In doing so, providers are better positioned to make informed decisions about diagnosis and treatment.  

CAD is composed of multiple technologies working together. These include image processing, radiology, computer vision, and artificial intelligence. It is a useful tool for improving the quality of care by improving diagnosis.    

All the medical imaging informatics processes invariably involve the storage and management of medical images. So, the use of any type of health informatics application, first and foremost, requires adequate security for the stored images. Having built cutting-edge applications for healthcare, OSP can design and develop customized informatics platforms with a high degree of security. Our solution would feature access controls and audit trails to prevent unauthorized access and data leakage. Having HIPAA-compliant measures for storing images also optimizes medical records management since doctors can update patient records as per the latest developments.     


Informatics in medical imaging enables providers to assess radiology images faster and with greater accuracy. This is especially true for cancer and other diseases in their early stages when they are difficult to detect manually. OSP can design medical Imaging informatics software solutions that rapidly compare images against established benchmarks and accelerate the diagnostic process. This solution would also drastically increase the detection rate and empower doctors to make better decisions.

Any technology that boosts the effectiveness of clinical decision-making ultimately benefits the patients. Solutions for medical imaging informatics enhance radiology and enable faster diagnosis, resulting in timely clinical intervention. As a result, diseases that are likely to be missed by physicians would be diagnosed using imaging informatics. This eventually leads to improvement in the clinical outcomes for patients.

Integrated healthcare is when multiple doctors collaborate to provide care. It is considered an effective means of reducing healthcare costs and implementing a value-based model of reimbursements. Using a digital platform for medical imaging informatics enables doctors of different specializations to coordinate and exchange insights. They can share notes and work cohesively to achieve better patient results.
