Integration and interoperability are major determinants for success of an imaging information system. Integration of medical imaging with clinical information systems, hospital information systems and electronic health records is crucial if we want to ensure timely access to complete information. In addition to systems integration, radiologists expect significant improvement in core image viewing and analysis functions as well. They would like a unified view of all the patient's exams as well as his medical history. Further desirable enhancements include voice recognition and recording; touch screen functionality; advanced analytics; automated hanging protocols; case-based learning and cloud-based informatics solutions, to name a few. A diagnostic-grade multi-modality image viewer, which is "de-coupled" from a particular workstation or PACS archive, helps meet the need for data access and mobility.
