Homerton Healthcare achieves milestone with enterprise imaging via the cloud

Homerton Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust has become the first organisation in the NHS to deploy Sectra’s enterprise imaging service using public cloud. Sectra says this deployment has shown that NHS patient imaging can be efficiently accessed from a secure public cloud environment as quickly as when data is stored on the premises.

Radiology teams at the trust have been using the service to help them analyse and report patient scans. The trust delivers around 250,000 imaging reports for patients each year.
Trust PACS manager Adham Nicola said: “As a first-of-type for public cloud in the NHS, we have proven this works. Being bleeding edge can be a challenge, but we have achieved a milestone in cloud adoption for NHS imaging.

“Feedback from radiologists has been nothing but positive. The system is highly reliable, secure, resilient and performs well, supporting our diagnostic teams with lots more functionality that is proving very popular with radiologists. This also has the potential to help us to adopt AI in the future.”
