Good news for NHS PACS

I caught this intriguing PACS story for Medicexchange this morning:

“The UK’s National Health Service’s Connecting for Health (NHS CFH) announced today that its Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) has captured more than 100 million x-rays and scans, and has achieved 50% of its planned deployments with 65 systems installed across the NHS during the past 20 months.” Also liked the conclusion, quoting Laurence Sutton, consultant radiologist and national clinical lead for PACS and data migration and retention at NHS CFH, that “the next steps are to enable sharing of these images between other health care organisations across England”.

Great to hear good news about the CFH programme.
