The theme for the event will be: Delivering the Paperless and Filmless NHS

This one day conference will not only examine how to work with PACS and RIS beyond the National Programme, but also discuss getting the most out of Radiology Information Systems and PACS through effective workflow and systems design and how to integrate them with other Trust systems and Electronic Patient Records in the development of a paperless and filmless NHS. There will be a focus on interoperability standards, data localisation and migration.

The conference is aimed at senior NHS decision makers including heads of imaging departments, consultant radiologists, radiographers and IT lead managers and clinicians.

The opening presentation will provide a national update looking towards a paperless and filmless NHS and also discuss further opportunities for redesigning radiology services such as seven day working and home reporting. The conference will continue with presentations focusing on ensuring continuity, improving the effectiveness of PACS reporting and order communications, getting the most out of PACS and improving workflow and processes to ensure systems work intelligently.

Attendees will also have the opportunity to hear from a variety of healthcare professionals on topics including how to improve the effectiveness of PACS reporting and order communications; re-evaluating security controls and information governance with wider sharing of information across the health economy and private sector; as well as a case study from Hammersmith Hospital who will discuss their experiences of being the first UK filmless hospital.
