Global Remote Incident Prevention
King Abdulaziz Specialist Hospital (KASH) at Taif, is one of the top 10 hospitals in the Ministry of Health in Saudi Arabia. It has been rewarded the JCI certificate (Joint Commission International) in July 2012. The hospital has applied all JCI standers and finally passed the survey successfully. (IT, 2012)
Moreover, KASH provides medical services to patients in the hospital. One of the major services in KASH is Radiology Information System (RIS), and how doctors can diagnose the patient's symptoms after several investigations can be seen through the network. Instead of going to the radiology modalities, having the cassette reader (CR) filmed manually, then prepare the patient report. It is done easily now by a new system. (IT, 2012)
In this project the concentrate will be on the PACS system and its infrastructure, and how incident can be prevented from occurring. The key is joining a response incident team as an outsource support to keep auditing the PACS system.
PACS Cluster Server
KASH has contracted with AGFA Health Care Company (Worldwide, 2013) which provides a great project called Picture Archive Communication System (PACS). PACS is a huge system. It has a cluster server (7 servers see table 1) located in the data center of information technology department at the hospital. Also the PACS has a software called (IMPAX) is installed in every client in the network. IMPAX has also an important database of patient's record. Thus it has a web viewer that each doctor can view the patient's image and report easily.

Cracknell and Varatsos (2011) says there are two reasons as to why remote sensing plays a vital role in the study of climate change, namely the huge coverage the data provides in terms area which allows studies at a local, regional or global scale and also the temporal coverage of this data as there are now libraries of data covering several decades available....

It essentially tells about the relationship between a man and a woman, and how the man has the remote control to the woman's life. The symbols used are very meaningful to the overall theme. The theme of "Remote Control" is also very important, and not just a topic for a good poem but a real problem in society too. The writing would be much less effective if not for the symbols used throughout the very strong overall message.... [tags: Poetry Alicia Zakon Remote Control]
