Abstract

After medical images are taken by an appropriate image recording system, they are assigned to a corresponding work flow within a medical application for processing. Then, the clinical administration assigns the different work items to particular roles. Every user within a role can claim these work items and process it. After processing is done, the user assigns the work item to another user of another role within the task flow for further processing. Up to now, there is no mechanism to track the number of work items claimed by each user of the particular role. To report the number of work items claimed by the users, each user has to track the transacted work items manually and the data has to be consolidated.
