Infinite Acuity originally developed IMSS’s RWS system which allows physicians and technicians to log into a central, web-based SSL location to view and report on patient images and information provided by a their Amicas PACS system.
This was done via a small Visual Basic application that was developed that runs every minute on the RWS server. This application retrieves data from an XML data feed provided by the Amicas software via HTTPS and loads it in to the RWS’s custom DB2 database. This is the critical link that allows system users to see all studies that have been entered into the Amicas system in an almost real-time fashion. Once the studies are in the RWS system, the users can view their images by loading a special page within the RWS that calls a special Java applet developed by Amicas.
IA recently converted the RWS’s custom DB2 database into MSSQL 2005. This involved data conversion, data migration and re-indexing of the database tables. As part of this process IA created a new Visual Basic application that listens for HL7 messages from the NeuroStar server via a secure socket. An acknowledgement message is sent back to NeuroStar once the HL7 message is received by the application. The application then parses the HL7 message and inserts it into the MSSQL 2005 database.
