DICOMconnect - DICOM Functionalities for Medical Systems – DICOM Interface

DICOMconnect is a library and expands medical systems software by a DICOM interface. The focus lies in easy usage and integration. Unlike conventional DICOM toolkits, the developer will need no advanced DICOM knowledge to use DICOMconnect. As a universal DICOM interface for medical devices, DICOMconnect operates platform-independently on a Windows, Linux, or Mac basis.

Take Advantage of all Benefits DICOMconnect has to offer:

  • Competitiveness through Integration - Reach more customers due to integration in clinical IT (esp. HIS, PACS, EPR)
  • ShortTime-to-Market - Fast availability by easy integration into your device software and subsequently into the clinical IT
  • Low Regulatory Effort - Designed according to guideline for medical devices to meet the regulatory requirements (MDR/MDD)
  • Cost-friendly Pay per Device concept - Only devices activated in the field will need a license

DICOMconnect  Features at a Glance:
  • Retrieval of patient data or planned medical examinations per work list
  • Feedback of the examination status via MPPS
  • Creating or forwarding DICOM images, DICOM videos, and PDFs from raw data
  • Archiving and transfer of responsibility to PACS per Storage Commitment
  • TLS encryption
  • Writing or reading DICOM data from data storage mediums
  • Permanent updating and active reporting
  • Modular design for scalable functionality
  • Easy integration without deeper DICOM knowledge
  • Various integration options for almost any common operating system (Windows, Linux, MacOS) and device software environments
  • Designed as a safety class B component according to
  • ISO IEC 62304 und ISO 14971, including integrated risk control measures 
  • Consulting and Support

HL7connect - HL7 Interface

The connection and communication of medical devices with the master data systems HIS (Hospital Information System) is nowadays a must-have to stay competitive. The HL7 standard is used internationally for this purpose. It is necessary to provide an HL7 interface for the medical device.
However, the familiarization with HL7 and the connection at the customer’s hospital usually turns out to be a complex process. To make this process as simple as possible, we have developed HL7connect.
HL7connect is a software component developed by softgate for the integration of medical devices into clinical IT using HL7. The exchange of patient master data as well as the data collected by your medical device is done by the component. Thus, manufacturers of medical devices can stay focused on their competence and benefit from the advantages of HL7connect.

Benefit from the advantages of HL7connect – HL7 Interface:
Competitiveness through integration - Reach more customers through integration with clinical IT (especially HIS, EHR)
Short Time-to-Market - Fast availability through easy integration with your device software and then to clinical IT
Low regulatory burden - Developed according to medical device guidelines to meet regulatory requirements (MDR)
Cost-friendly pay-per-device model - Only field activated devices require a license

The features of the HL7 interface at a glance:

  • Sending and receiving HL7 messages
  • Exchange file-based or directly via network (TCP – HL7 MLLP protocol)
  • Free configuration of parameters for data transfer and thus adaptable to the terminology of the medical device and the end user (e.g. hospital)
  • Use of different HL7 versions and dialects (e.g. medical device 2.5 <-> HIS 2.7)
  • Consulting and support

Product category: Other medical information systems / software


Connecting medical examination devices to leading information systems is an important aspect of the digital transformation in healthcare. But still, many devices offer interfaces that do not correspond to any of the commonly used standards such as GDT or HL7. GDTbridge connects these medical devices without a complex, device-specific interface programming.
Bidirectional data exchange is possible: GDTbridge transfers patient data and examination requests from the information system to the medical device. Vice versa, GDTbridge transfers the generated examination data back to the information system and provides them for diagnosis or archiving.
Communication works for proprietary protocols as well as for standard protocols such as GDT or HL7. In this way connecting medi-cal devices works in medical practices, clinics and laboratories.

DICOM Consulting and Validation

Our specialists for medical communication standards have both, the theoretical background and many years of practical experience in the field of interfaces in the clinical environment. We are happy to contribute this knowledge to your projects. We will tailor the range of our offer to your specific needs:

You want to build up knowledge about workflows and interfaces in healthcare IT in your company? We offer individual workshops for which we prepare ourselves intensively in cooperation with you. Not a frontal event with standard content, but specially tailored to your needs and interactive. The contents address marketing, sales, development, testing, and support as required.

Consulting and Support:
You have specific questions regarding the implementation of DICOM-/HL7-/IHE interfaces? Do you need support in creating the DICOM Conformance Statement? Take advantage of the expertise of our team on an ad hoc basis. Upon request, we will also accompany you to customer meetings for project discussions or error analyses.

DICOM Validation:
You want to implement a DICOM interface in your product? With a comprehensive collection of test tools, we simulate communication partners and evaluate the conformity and practical suitability of your implementation as well as the quality of your DICOM Conformance Statement.
Testing will be performed either in your premises, in our laboratory, or remotely via internet. You will receive a validation protocol of the test cases performed and recommendations for changes of your interface or your documentation, if applicable.

About us

Company portrait

We are active in the field of software development since 1992. Based in Erlangen with over 90 employees and ISO 9001 as well as ISO 13485 certified, we have successfully completed a large number of projects in various medical domains. Thus we have an extensive know-how in the areas of:

  • Interoperability through connectivity: Do your medical devices and systems need to be networked using software interfaces based on DICOM, HL7, GDT, FHIR, IHE? In addition to the software products DICOMconnect, HL7connect and GDTBridge, we support our customers in consulting, development and validation of their own solutions
  • Software for medical imaging: Whether video, simple image acquisition or complex slice imaging, from image optimization to software user interface to multiplanar reformation - the topics we master form a variety of starting points for manufacturers of medical devices and systems. Endoscopes, microscopes, intraoral cameras and many more - software from softgate can be found in many devices
  • Medical Grade Software: Your software serves a medical purpose but is not a medical device? Or you only need different software components that are outside your core competence. We support you with our expertise, either in the overall conception or with partial packages and components
  • Embedded Systems: As a basis of every medical device a hardware related software layer is needed. From operating systems (e.g. QNX, Embedded Linux), to drivers and motion control, to the HMI, you can count on our know-how
