Techopedia explains Radiology Information System (RIS)

Typically, the key components of a radiology information system consist of a database and a front-end RIS application. Radiological devices capture radiological tests & data and store it on the database. The front-end RIS application helps in accessing and editing that data. An RIS generally provides:

  • Patient registration and management
  • Radiology workflow management
  • Document and image creation, modification and management
  • Billing and reporting

The RIS is mostly developed in parallel with electronic health records industry regulations such as HIPAA.
