Bradford completes one of UK’s largest image migration projects

Project manager Ian White, director of informatics Cindy Fedell and IT infrastructure manager Ian Stewart.

Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has completed one of the UK’s largest image migration projects as a result of a partnership with healthcare data management companies BridgeHead Software, Dell and Agfa HealthCare.  A total of 1.7 million radiology studies, equating to 126 million Dicom images and 27 terabytes of data, have been transferred from the central data store at a rate of up to 1.4 million images per day into BridgeHead’s vendor neutral archive HealthStore.

Trust executive director for informatics and IT Cindy Fedell said: “Bradford has introduced one of the first truly neutral stores of PACS images in the country.  While no project of this stature is deployed without its share of challenges, the trust and suppliers should be commended for their willingness to work together to provide a solution that enables our organisation to take a far more strategic approach to its image data management.”
