Radiology Information Systems and PACS

Venue: ICO Conference Centre
22 Berners Street

Date: 13 May 2014

Synopsis: This one day conference will not only examine how to work with PACS and RIS beyond the National Programme but will also discuss getting the most out of Radiology Information Systems and PACS through effective workflow and systems design, and how to integrate them with other Trust systems and Electronic Patient Records in the development of a paperless and filmless NHS. There will be a focus on improving the clinical end user experience, interoperability standards, data localisation and migration and the role of information systems in moving towards a 7 day service.


“Today I want to argue that we need to go much further, much faster.So today I am setting a new ambition for the NHS.I want it to become paperless by 2018. The most modern digital health service in the world.”
Jeremy Hunt, Health Secretary 15 January 2013

“Safe, digital record keeping is the hallmark of a modern, sustainable and patient led health and care service. In order for the NHS to provide high quality and effective care for all, information must flow both within health organisations and across boundaries into social care, allowing vital data to follow patients through their care pathways..”
Sir David Nicholson, NHS Medical Director July 2013

The opening presentation will provide a national update looking towards a paperless and filmless hospital and also discuss further opportunities for redesigning radiology services such as 7 day working and home reporting. The conference will continue with presentations focusing on ensuring continunity, improving the effectiveness of PACS reporting and order communications, getting the most out of PACS, improving the end user experience and improving workflow and processes to ensure systems work intelligently.
