Abstract : In order to exchange, store and extract the clinical data related with patient admission, laboratories test results, patient history, images, and so on, for the effective interchange and sharing of the in formation; there must be many standards in many layers. Among many standards for the syntax, HL7 and DICOM (Digital Imaging Communication in Medicine) are most successful. However, everything could not be handled by HL7 solely. DICOM is good for radiological images, but, other clinical images are already handled by other ‘lighter’ data formats like JPEG, TIFF. So, it is not realistic to use only one standard for every area of clinical information. Therefore, HL7 standard and DICOM were used to facilitate clinical information exchange between healthcare organizations. A typical use is HL7 messages, DICOM files; the purpose is to facilitate clinical data exchanges. The success of building interfaces directly to multiple independent instruments and other data collection systems by using medical standards such as HL7, and DICOM.
