By Interface Type

DICOM

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

Imaging Integration read the specImaging Integration technical specification

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
  • Change Healthcare
  • Client Outlook
  • Compressus
  • Digisonics
  • Fuji
  • GE
  • Heart Imaging Technologies
  • Hermes Medical Solutions
  • Hologic
  • Infinitt North America
  • Intelerad
  • LUMEDX
  • Medstreaming
  • Merge Healthcare

MWL (Modality Work List) read the specMWL (Modality Work List) technical specification

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) read the specMPPS (Modality Performed Procedure Step) technical specification

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

SR (Structured Reporting) read the specSR (Structured Reporting) technical specification

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) read the specSC (Secondary Capture) technical specification

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 read the specWADO (Web Access to DICOM Objects) Import of Key Objects technical specification

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