This one day conference will examine how to work with digital imaging, radiology information systems and PACS to deliver the national ambition of a paperless and filmless NHS, improving imaging services and timeliness.
“Increasing demand for imaging services and a national shortage of radiologists means that trusts do not always have enough staff. This can create problems with backlogs of reports of imaging studies, creating a risk that important findings might not be recognised and acted on in a timely way. Trusts need to have systems in place to mitigate this, but the current quality of these systems is variable.” Care Quality Commission 2nd March 2017
The conference will address national developments, new models of radiology care including an update from the radiology vanguard site which emphasizes a move towards a collaborative clinical network approach, getting the most out of RIS and PACs through effective workflow and systems design, and how to integrate them with other Trust systems and Electronic Patient Records. There will be a focus on improving the clinical end user experience, interoperability standards, sharing radiology images across organisations, information governance, the role of specialty systems, and the role of information systems in moving towards a 7 day service and delivering real time bedside imaging to improve patient care.
The day also features a pre conference supplier showcase where suppliers will be demonstrating their systems and how they can support your organization to deliver digital imaging in practice.
