Challenges facing diagnostic imaging and radiology in the NHS is one of the topics to be discussed at this month’s UK Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO).
Among those participating is Change Healthcare, which works with trusts throughout the NHS, and is known for one of the largest technology deployments of its kind. It provides a country wide picture archiving and communication system, or PACS, for Ireland’s National Integrated Medical Imaging System (NIMIS), and most recently taking Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust live with its enterprise imaging technology in January 2019.
The organisation provides cardiology technology to around 70% of NHS trusts in England, works with a growing number of UK trusts in enterprise medical imaging, and has helped to solve challenges for diagnostic teams in more than 3,000 imaging facilities worldwide.
Richard Turner, executive director, international operations at Change Healthcare, said: “UKIO is great opportunity for us to continue to engage with people at the forefront of imaging and oncology in the NHS. Sharing best practice is key to realising ambitions around early and effective diagnoses, and in enhancing the diagnostic capability of the health service. We look forward to learning more from delegates around their priorities in this rapidly evolving environment, and sharing our experiences from working with healthcare providers in the NHS and around the world.”
UKIO is the amalgamation of two conferences – the UK Radiological Congress (UKRC) and the UK Radiation Oncology Conference (UKRO). It is organised by the Radiology Oncology Congresses, a charitable partnership of the British Institute of Radiology, The Institute of Physics and Engineering in Medicine, and The College of Radiographers.
UKIO will be held from 10-12 June at ACC Liverpool.
