Hi Luis,

I am involved with a project at Napier University looking and I am having some difficulty finding how to integrate services such as PACS and LIMS.   Currently I have both GNU health and an Orthanc Server but I am struggling to see how to connect the two.   They are both running on virtual machines, the GNU Health has the health30 test database setup.

You suggest here that there might be a plugin that could help but the only plugins that I could find were for a camera.

You also suggest that it is possible to enter the URI of the Orthanc explorer but I can't see anywhere to do this.

I would be very grateful if you could point me in the right direction.

As you know, we're working on direct integration from GNU Health with
Orthanc to manage Imaging Studies.

Once the DICOM image has been stored in Orthanc, we could retrieve it
from GNU Health, either via the URI to the Orthanc explorer, or using
specific GNU Health plugins.

The patient demographics, study ID, institution, ... has to
be the one generated with GNU Health, so we can get the best out of the
