An Acute Care Collaboration Vanguard, creating and maintaining an innovative NHS imaging network for the benefit of patients and clinicians in the East Midlands and beyond.
Since 2014, we have been working with GE Healthcare, as the main technical contractor supporting our consortium Trusts. GE are providing a scalable radiology IT system, capable of handling millions of patient events and providing imaging data to point of care anywhere in our region.
Over 1.6 billion images.
Approximately one petabyte of data.
1.6 million studies being added every year.
We have deployed regional sharing tools allowing all clinicians to see patient data at point of need, regardless of location. We're also deploying new tools to enhance sharing beyond our borders more safely than ever before.
Healthcare innovation doesn't stand still and neither do we.
With help from the NHS Vanguard programme, we are using our technical and governance systems to the fullest, to explore some of the big 'what-if?' questions which relate to NHS imaging services.
We are actively sharing everything we learn with other NHS organisations, for the benefit of all.
Delivery of care for patients, regardless of their location, is at the forefront of what we do. Working together as NHS Trusts, we have designed an innovative and sustainable consortium model for service provision between Trusts. Our model is based on collaboration, not competition.
We are designing and using strong clinical, information and operational governance structures to keep everyone in step and patient data secure.
Our approach is one based on international standards compliant solutions, which assures safety and guarantees future proofing of further developments.
