By Interface Type


Standards developed by Digital Imaging and Communications are used internationally for communicating medical images and related information. You can learn more from DICOM.

Epic has APIs available for PACS integration that include single sign-on, patient context synchronization, study context synchronization, and real-time measurement exchange. These APIs have been implemented to varying degrees across PACS and CPACS vendors. Check out our DICOM conformance statement as well. We additionally have an encryption utility for use with our XML integration (identical to URL encryption).
Current integrations include...
  • Agfa
  • Ambra Health
  • BRIT
  • Carestream

MWL (Modality Work List)

This DICOM interface enables a piece of imaging equipment to obtain details of patients and scheduled examinations electronically, avoiding the need to type such information multiple times.

MPPS (Modality Performed Procedure Step)

This DICOM interface provides a mechanism for modalities to send the procedure start and procedure complete notification.

SR (Structured Reporting)

This DICOM interface provides a mechanism for modalities to send structured information from the performed exam to Epic. Each modality or exam can send different measurements.

SC (Secondary Capture)

This DICOM interface provides a mechanism for modalities or a PACS to forward a copy of the DICOM SC images flagged by the technologist to Epic. We can process this message and file the image to be used when reviewing the patient's chart.

WADO (Web Access to DICOM Objects) Import of Key Objects

This DICOM interface pulls key objects from the PACS via WADO to support streamlined workflows throughout the EMR.
