Wellbeing Software Unveils Connected Radiology Programme
Connected healthcare specialist Wellbeing Software – home to Cris, Wellbeing’s Radiology Information System (RIS) – has launched its Connected Radiology Programme to help radiology departments share resources, improve workflows and address the issue of reporting backlogs.
The programme, which was unveiled at this year’s UKIO radiology conference is open to both existing users of Cris – the largest radiology user network in the UK – and also those using alternative systems, as it works seamlessly with any RIS and PACS.
The programme, which is designed to promote improved levels of regional working and optimised reporting capacity, 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.
During the three-day show, held at the ACC in Liverpool, there was significant interest in the programme, which has continued following the event.
Chris Yeowart, director at Wellbeing Software said:
“Response to the programme has been fantastic over the last few days.
“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.”
Wellbeing has a presence in 81% of NHS organisations. It’s Radiology Information System (RIS) Cris is the most widely utilised system on the market, used in over 700 locations and supporting 25 million imaging events per year. You can learn more about teleradiology in this article.
