Dicom Systems Receives U.S. Patent for Medical Data Integration Engine

October 22, 2019 — Dicom Systems announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued U.S. Patent 10,437,877 B2 to support the company's position as a healthcare and medical imaging software developer of solutions designed with interoperability and user-configuration at the forefront.

The new patent, titled "User-Configurable Radiological Data Transformation, Integration, Routing and Archiving Engine," includes the following provisions:

  • Provides hospitals, practice groups and integrated delivery networks (IDN) with a user-configurable automated engine for medical data filtering, transformation, integration, routing and archiving;
  • Proprietary WebGUI enables the configuration of a set of medical data filter conditions, data transformation rules, workflow integration, routing rules and archiving rules;
  • Provides interoperability in industry-standard protocols in DICOM (Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine) and beyond, including HL7 (Health Level 7), XDS-I (Cross-enterprise Document Sharing for Imaging), DICOMweb and FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources); and
  • The newly granted patent is an expansion of Dicom Systems' 2016 US patent 9,390,153 entitled "User-configurable Radiological Data Transformation and Archiving."

The patent covers proprietary technology in the Dicom Systems Unifier, its signature enterprise imaging platform, for integrating radiological data (patient studies, orders, and reports) across disparate radiology systems (e.g., radiology information systems, hospital information systems, electronic medical records, and/or other radiological systems) to provide a universal worklist and/or standardized data.

Dicom Systems will showcase Unifier at the 2019 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) scientific assembly and annual meeting (RSNA), Dec. 1-6 in Chicago.
