Answer Wiki:
CCOW stands for Clinical context object workgroup.It is an HL7 standard.It defines means for the automatic ccordination and synchronization of disparate healthcare applications that co-reside on the same clinical desktop. In RIS-PACS Context many times RIS and PACS are from different vendor and CCOW provides the desktop integration.If user sign on the RIS then he or she do not require to sign on the application.Apart from this context is also shared between RIS and PACS.So,if the shared context is patientid and study id then PACS will populate the image set automatically. Many time PACS web client is accessed through EMR or EHR.In that case also CCOW can help and singl signon can be achieved using CCOW.
