The research using business process re-engineering (BPR) and information systems method especially the relational database. This study produced six combinations of improvement strategies for radiology service systems with different results. This study result an improvement in radiology services with the quickest waiting time by using the combination: digital radiography (DR), radiology information system (RIS), and picture archiving and communication system (PACS).
