Has anyone put together a proforma for a RIS/PACS selection process that they would be willing to share? (A selection proforma based on radiologist/clinician needs.)

Remember what Thoreau said simplify, simplify, simplify…. I would say Network review first, confirm band width, second leverage current storage hardware i.e. EMC or IBM investments... Third focus on your market segment who competes well there and meets customer needs, support, service, contractuals, features, functionality wise.

Then… Define functional requirements for your facility and associated locations. Create functional requirements document to go to each vendor, ask for corporate overview and financial disclaimer from vendor and then move to have demonstrations performed with scripts and scenarios documented and ready for critiques from the radiologist and IT support staff. Divide the comments by technical and functional (application level). Send a request for re-quote confirming CR needs, DICOM upgrade costs etc, defined integration strategy IHE (Y or N?), define dx workstations, clinical workstations, furniture, printers, DICOM converters, integrations costs, maintenance fees, software fees and license fees for the Enterprise…. Go on a site visit (or two) perform reference calls with questions for the appropriate people and make the decision as to who you want to dance with…

Here is a presentation I did Post RSNA 2003, I created an overview (not detailed enough for me) of the RIS marketplace seen at the RSNA. I was not able to attend the ECR this past year so I apologize that I could not have a presentation with a focus on European RIS solutions.
