National network will enable radiology departments to share resources and access specialists
Wellbeing Software has launched a Connected Radiology Programme to help imaging departments share resources, improve workflows, and address the issue of backlogs.
The programme is open to both existing users of Cris – the largest radiology user network in the UK – and those using alternative systems, as it works seamlessly with any RIS or PACS.
Designed to promote improved levels of regional working and optimised reporting capacity; it is enabled by Cris Connect, the technology platform that facilitates the secure sharing of radiology information, images and reporting across the UK.
This is particularly important given growing demands and ongoing reporting capacity constraints, which are stretching services, contributing to, and causing, reporting delays – impacting patient diagnosis and treatment recommendations – and in some cases, resulting in fines from the Care Quality Commission.
Chris Yeowart, director at Wellbeing Software, said: “Radiology departments play an essential role in the diagnostic process and as a result operate at the intersection of a vast array of healthcare services.
“The programme can help NHS organisations connect the dots while using existing technology where possible, to help improve reporting capacity.”
