Advanced PACS/RIS DICOM, HL7 and IHE

Overview:

A PACS administrator is a professional who orchestrates a complex set of functions in supporting an imaging informatics solution. This solution may comprise of a Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) and/or Radiology Information System (RIS).

 

To support these solutions requires a unique set of skills which cross over between IT, Clinical and Management.

 

We mould and develop personnel in the medical field, into effective Imaging Informatics administrators with knowledge and practical experience.​
