Back to Basics: Routing Rules

Routing Rule

The beauty of Ambra is that you don’t need to be logged into the platform for images to make it to the right place, whether they’re being shared within the same organization or being sent to another organization. And that’s all thanks to Routing Rules. Here are the key components to keep in mind when using this powerful tool:



APPLICATION: Where will the study originate from? In other words, which namespace will it be in? Will it be harvested via an Ambra Gateway, uploaded using the Web Uploader and/or shared from another namespace? 

CONDITIONS: Are there any conditions that must be met to trigger the Routing Rule? For example, imaging taken on a specific modality, from a particular referring physician or going to a specific Application Entity Title.

 ACTIONS: Where will the study end up? Will it be shared within the same organization or sent to another organization? For the former, options include sharing directly to locations, groups or destinations within the account the study is originating from. For the latter, options include sharing via a share code, which is specific to a particular namespace, or via email.

With that in mind, here’s an example of a Routing Rule that automatically sends studies uploaded to Hospital A to Hospital B:
