The development of the Multimedia Electronic Medical Record System (MEMRS) offers new opportunities for integrating medical imaging data with text-based clinical data. The effective integration of pathology images into the patient's medical record poses some significant technical and organizational challenges. Before these challenges can be met, it is imperative that we investigate the value and utility of providing these images to clinicians. In this study we examined attitudes towards use of pathology images in Image Engine, a MEMRS under development at the University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute (UPCI). We conducted semi-structured standardized interviews with a cohort of practicing oncologists, all of whom had significant experience with Image Engine. This study is a first step towards elucidating the potential barriers, uses, and value of anatomic pathology images in the MEMRS.
