Abstract

In this paper, a hierarchical model for Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (HPACS) is presented and implemented at Taichung Veterans General Hospital (TCVGH) in Taiwan. Despite the fact that the HPACS is built on the architecture of the second generation PACS, it offers many improved features and has advantages over the second generation PACS, such as the user security control, fast resource dispatch and efficient resource management. This HPACS can be used as a reference model for a hospital with any scale-size. The real implementation of HPACS is currently undertaken in the Taichung Veterans General Hospital (TCVGH), Taiwan, Republic of China and consists of four phases with the first two phases already completed. It is the first pilot system ever to be implemented successfully in a large-scale hospital in Taiwan. The experiences have illustrated the great promise of the HPACS in the future.
