NHS and the Future of Medical Imaging.


Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool

June 10-12, 2013

Accenture is proud to attend 2013 UK Radiology Congress (UKRC) as sponsor, speaker and exhibitor.

UKRC takes place once a year with three days of multidisciplinary scientific conference and technical exhibition. UKRC is aimed at all those involved in the field of radiological science and attracts between 3,000-4,000 attendees each year. This year’s conference will debate current technologies and the developments of future prospects in radiology.

Accenture will be attending both as exhibitor and speaker, with two sessions at the Symposia content programme. The first session is “Life after the National Programme”, a reflection on the experiences of NHS Trusts in their search for imaging solutions in the new procuring model; the second is “The Roadmap for the Future”, a joint-presentation of Accenture and Agfa with a roadmap of solutions for the post-NPfIT world.

Medical Imaging
Providing Choice, Value and Peace of Mind
In a time of change, Accenture brings continuity, in-depth global industry knowledge and experience to medical imaging practices worldwide.

The global healthcare landscape is undergoing monumental change. Among the many pressures facing medical imaging professionals, reducing costs without lowering patient care is at the top. This is driving the need for cost-effective, high-quality and scalable solutions for storage, retrieval, diagnostics and transfer of medical images.

Connected Health
Making the Right Connection
IT-enabled networks that capture all patient data and allow that information to be shared are the key to better, cheaper and more accessible care. But to realise their full potential, connected-health systems need the willing participation of all interested parties—policy makers, clinicians and patients—in a carefully calibrated and collaborative enterprise.

Connected Health in England: On the Brink of Success
The English health system is experiencing continual change, and its success in Connected Health will depend somewhat upon how the system responds to significant structural upheaval and stringent efficiency measures.

While English healthcare experts see a localised and diverse healthcare information technology infrastructure emerging through all the change, some argue that local systems should be designed to integrate across the country for the longer term. Still others argue that England will achieve its vision only through more realistic and pragmatic measures, such as exchanging only key summary information nationally, with more extensive local and regional sharing.
