In the context of healthcare, particularly radiology departments, an RIS (Radiology Information System) is a specialized software system that governs and streamlines the workflow and operations related to medical imaging procedures. An RIS typically includes functionalities such as appointment scheduling, patient tracking, image and data management, reporting, and billing for radiology services. It serves as a central hub for radiologists and other healthcare professionals involved in the imaging process, enhancing efficiency in scheduling, image interpretation, and overall management of radiological services within a healthcare institution.
