According to new market information from Frost & Sullivan, Siemens Medical Solutions has combined its picture archiving and communications system (Sienet-PACS) with its Radiology Information System (NOVIUS RMS) to create RIS/PACS, one of the first integrated approaches to electronic patient records.

The system will allow physicians to access, over an intranet or the Internet, patient histories, lab results, prescription information, medical images, and test results in real time with a secure single sign-on and can be combined with biometric technology, such as fingerprint identification. According to Frost & Sullivan, RIS/PACS is the first system that provides radiologists with access to patient lifetime clinical records, knowledge databases, and care guidelines.
