Abstract : The paper describes a new type of medical information environment which is fully web-enabled. The system can handle any type medical information including text, physiological waveforms, images and moving images, etc. The key to the PiRiLiS design is advanced web-browser based software integrated with a full Dicom library covering all modalities. This has resulted in a fast and robust system. The system has been evaluated at a number of sites including the USC Radiology Department in Los Angeles where it is connected to a number of scanners and PACS systems in three hospitals. This paper describes a comprehensive, web-enabled, patient- centric medical information system called PiRiLiS. PiRiLiS is a Level 6 system on the international scale for EPR systems. In addition to providing the functionality of a Level 3 system, it has telemedicine and other multi-media, document imaging, access to knowledge bases and embedded guidelines. Another important feature of the PiRiLiS design is that it is fully compatible with the DICOM 3.0 standard which has been widely adopted by all of the world's major manufactures of medical equipment.
