The DICOM sensors of PRTG use the the DICOM C-ECHO, C-FIND, and C-STORE requests to monitor various aspects of DICOM devices, such as whether devices are responding, or to check the number of worklist items scheduled for your modalities. Here's how to set the sensors up.
With the HL7 sensor, you can check if your HL7 interfaces are responding.
Business Process Sensor for Monitoring Workflows
Finally, if you want to monitor an entire healthcare workflow, such as the radiology process, then you can use the Business Process Sensor to show details from various other sensors, including the DICOM and HL7 sensors you already have in place. You can then get a status summary of a complete business process. Watch the tutorial video to see how.
