Abstract: Telemedicine is emerging as a fast growing medical technology in the health care industry. It helps to eliminate distance barriers and can improve access to medical services that would often not be usually available in distant rural communities. Created from a convergence of telecommunication and information technologies, telemedicine permits communications between the patient and healthcare provider with fidelity and convenience. The most popular use of telemedicine is via teleradiology, which is the ability to send medical images from one location to another. Traditionally, it requires a sending station, a receiving station, and a transmission network. However, with today’s high-speed broadband Internet, healthcare professionals and patients alike can view medical images stored on remote servers; only a standard Personal Computer and DSL/Cable Internet connection is needed. In this project, we will be developing a web based Radiology Information System (RIS), in an attempt to migrate the information systems used in radiology departments online. It aims to let healthcare professionals access patient medical data at any time, while letting patients themselves monitor their health. The development process, from its inspiration to implementation to wrap up, is documented in this report. Special attention is given to discussing the application design, difficulties encountered during design and development, the strengths and weaknesses of the application, and areas that can be improved upon in future.
