Gone are the days of manually copying patient data. Here are the days of automated PHI normalization and, therefore… (drumroll please) … Modality Worklist.
Modality Worklist, or MWL, is a way for users to apply hospital-specific Protected Health Information (PHI) to a patient. When patients bring outside CDs into a hospital, these CDs often have the old institution PHI attached to them (i.e. MRN). The receiving hospital can apply its hospital-specific MRN to the patient by feeding orders into Ambra through a Radiology Information System (RIS), at which point users can find these orders in Ambra and match them to the pertinent study with MWL. Once approved in the activities queue, imaging will appear in Ambra with the corrected PHI.
The workflow is as follows:
