The DICOM Processor can be configured to achieve different outcomes. Before configuring the DICOM Processor, answer the following questions:

  1. Do you need the DICOM Processor to create placeholder documents for all of the patient's existing studies based on a single HL7 message?
    • This approach is useful if you want to create placeholder documents based on events like patient registration, which may not be associated with specific studies.

    • If you use this approach, incoming HL7 messages do not have to specify a study UID. Messages only need to provide the patient identifier.

    • This approach can be configured to retrieve study thumbnails, which can be displayed when the document list in OnBase Patient Window is in thumbnail mode.

    To use this approach, see Creating Documents from a Federated Search.

  2. Do you need the DICOM Processor to create placeholder documents immediately upon receiving HL7 messages containing study UIDs?
    • This approach allows the DICOM Processor to immediately create placeholder documents as soon as the HL7 messages are received.

    • This approach assumes the HL7 messages contain the information necessary to identify specific studies in the DICOM repository.

    To use this approach, see Creating Documents for Specific Studies.

  3. Did you answer yes to both questions?
    If so, then you must configure two separate import processes: one to create documents using a federated search, and one to create documents using the study information in the HL7 message.
