Maidenhead, UK – December 9th, 2013 – A platform which SynApps Solutions,the content management solutions company, created for the Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals, has won the TechWorld ‘Data Centre of the Year 2013’ Award.
The award, which was in the ‘Projects’ category, was made for the PACS, RIS and VNA platform which gives Trust clinicians – and external healthcare partners – instantaneous access to patients’ medical images and associated case notes at the point of need. The awards ceremony took place on 21st November.
The Trust is one of the largest and busiest in the North of England, with an
annual budget of over £400 million. Although the original trigger for
implementing a VNA was the need to replace a proprietary picture archiving and communication system (PACS), following the breakup of the NHS Connecting for Health IT Programme, the Royal’s plans for the technology go much wider. The Trust selected SynApps for the VNA implementation based on the company’s experience and its status as an EMC-preferred VNA implementation partner.
The Royal Liverpool Project beat three other shortlisted candidates – Cloud
Talent (Project Amadeus), Basho Technologies (Temetra scales to manage billions of data points with Riak) and Skanska UK (Bricks & Mortar – building a new core infrastructure).
The TechWorld Awards have firmly established themselves as the major
infrastructure and networking awards event in the IT calendar. Recognising both products and users, the TechWorld Awards highlight innovation on all sides of the IT industry. TechWorld is part of IDG Communications, the world’s largest IT publishing company.
SynApps Solutions is an independent services and solutions company specialising in Enterprise Content Management (ECM) technologies.

These have the potential to transform the way NHS Trusts share medical image files with other healthcare providers and to accelerate their progress towards single digital patient records.
