The ability to collect and share clinical data in real-time and with common meaning is crucial to high-quality, sustainable healthcare. While interoperability through a regional or national Health
Information Exchange can reduce costs, minimise readmissions and avoid medication errors, a lack of information poses a significant risk to patient safety and makes high-quality, coordinated care challenging to achieve. In the UK, Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) are evolving into Integrated Care Records, which then come together to form a Local Health Care Record or LHCR. An LHCR is made up of ve or six Integrated Care Systems sharing patient data, to create a regional health information exchange. With much work taking place to facilitate patient information sharing, what can be done at an individual NHS Trust Level?
Evergreen Storage enables storage that is deployed once and non-disruptively upgraded, as needed, for a decade or more, without the need to re-buy a TB or controllers you already own. Forget downtime, performance impact, or data migrations: We’ve engineered compatibility for future technologies directly into the product itself.
Pure as-a-Service is a platform for transforming an enterprise storage environment into a highly efficient storage utility. The industry’s first on-premises storage-as-a-service (STaaS) offering from a major vendor, Pure as-a-Service leverages the industry-leading, field-proven, FlashArrayTM and FlashBladeTM infrastructure to achieve success with peta-scale organizations and a 100% retention rate.
Digital transformation is one of the most popular business trends. Research shows that two-thirds of Global 2000 companies will, by the end of 2017 have placed digital transformation at the core of their corporate strategies.
The world has been thrust into a new way of working, both in our personal lives and within the business world. As a human race we look to ways in which we can adapt when facing new, challenging and confusing times, and naturally in today’s age we turn to technology. Everyone has been affected by what has happened and it’s clear that during this time we have had to rely heavily on technology – more specifically Artificial Intelligence.
Dizzying as these tech shifts might feel at the moment, they are opening our eyes to AI’s potential and promise for the ever-evolving healthcare sector. Innovating at rapid speed and scale, AI capabilities are already bringing dramatic changes to the way we ‘do healthcare’ - not least when it comes to the advancement of care diagnostics. Using a patient-centred, AI-powered chatbot illustrates these opportunities up-close. When deciding next steps in care, patients often find themselves making important decisions on their own amidst difficult and confusing access points.
With the increased demand on radiology departments to produce scans for Covid disease management compounding an already global shortage of radiographers and radiologists, Machine Learning and AI are increasingly playing a pivotal role in automatic Image Recognition and Picture Archiving and Communication Systems (PACS).
Fast, optimised, and intelligent data storage and management systems are required to support picture archiving and enhanced disease detection and monitoring.
This guide and product showcase is intended to help those whose work involves supporting the administration of PACS and VNA Systems.
