Sectra Ltd., Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, builds on their relationship with MDI Solutions by contracting with MDI to provide HL7 and database integration services for its RIS & Microdose Installation at Holly House to support Mammography workflow.

MDI is currently completing a multi-site PACS migration to Sectra’s PACS system for NIPACS (the Northern Ireland PACS project). Based on the success of the PACS Migration and a Sectra RIS to Misys archive integration at Dr. Gray’s Hospital at Elgin, Scotland, MDI have been contracted to develop HL7 interfaces between Sectra’s RIS and a unique PAS (HIS) called A-PAS.

Sectra are supplying a RIS, high availability PACS and Sectra MicroDose Mammography unit, with integration to a number of DICOM modalities. RIS and PACS workstations will be deployed in the department and a number of concurrent web clients will be available for accessing PACS images and reports throughout the organisation. Sectra RIS will integrate with Holly House Hospital’s A-PAS system (formerly Deltace) via MDI Solutions’ integration engine, MD Link.

Currently, the A- PAS (HIS) accepts and generates XML only. Utilizing the data manipulation capability of their integration engine, MD Link, MDI technical resources produced a solution to convert HL7 to XML for both inbound and outbound interfaces for RIS to support Patient Demographics, Lab Orders, Lab Results and Billing. This was achieved in a matter of weeks and Sectra and MDI technical resources collaborated to develop a new Sectra Specification Document for this unique PAS (HIS).
