A radiology information system (RIS) is a networked software suite used to manage medical imagery and associated data. An RIS is especially useful for managing radiological records and associated data in multiple locations, and is often used in conjunction with a picture archiving and communication system (PACS) to manage workflow and billing. An RIS can track a patient’s entire workflow within the radiology department. Images and reports can be added to and retrieved from electronic medical records (EMRs); these records can then be viewed by the authorized radiology staff.

Factors such as improved healthcare information technology systems, growth in the incidence rate of chronic diseases, increase in government funding for cancer-related researches, and rise in demand for better healthcare services are some of the key drivers responsible for the growth of the radiology information systems market.
The integration and close operability between RIS and hospital information systems (HIS) can create an open source of data transfer between hospitals and radiology departments; this can be achieved by applying two mechanisms. First, the sharing of information needs to be enabled by the application of a message sharing mechanism, which abides to the health level seven (HL7) protocols.
This enables the sharing, transfer, and storage of data among the RIS systems and data storage units. In the second mechanism, the interface between HL7 protocols and digital imaging and communication of imaging (DICOM) protocols should be developed to link RIS and picture archiving software.
The combination of these two mechanism bridges the gap between RIS and HIS and develops a user-friendly graphical interface for daily use.
