Single PACS across Birmingham hospitals set to improve imaging services

Carestream key account manager Ranjit Nandra and managing director Charlie McCaffrey at the contract signing with UHB executive director of strategic operations Kevin Bolger and imaging technical lead Barnaby Waters.

University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB) has awarded Carestream a contract to supply a package of medical imaging solutions that will support coordinated, collaborative care across the trust’s hospital sites.

The Carestream solutions will provide workflow management, clinical repository, diagnostic and image distribution functions as well as analytics applications to simplify medical image management and empower effective integration of services across sites for enhanced patient care.

“The single Carestream PACS solution being used at all the UHB sites across Birmingham will allow us to improve the imaging services we provide to our patients,” said imaging technical lead Barnaby Waters.  “The advanced image review and analysis tools for our clinicians and radiologists will help us interpret our diagnostic data more quickly.  The robust dual data centre architecture should avoid clinical downtime and, with our fully integrated business intelligence, we will always know what is going on.”
