Accenture UK medical imaging — Solutions

Explore Accenture’s established range of medical imaging solutions, offering innovation, flexibiliy and fully-managed service.


Accenture currently supports 35+ NHS Trusts in the East, North East and South-West of England with Medical Imaging solutions.

Our PACS customers are on the Agfa Healthcare IMPAX platform, an advanced and globally established, integrated imaging and reporting solution engineered to meet the demands of hospital imaging departments.

The majority of these organisations are also connected to the Central Data Store (CDS), the data centre hosted archiving solution which supports off-site storage and management of Trusts’ imaging data, to help provide access to data in the event of PACS being unavailable.

Accenture’s commitment to addressing the critical business needs of NHS Trust imaging departments has been met by integrating additional solutions to these core PACS components, including our Breast Screening Integration Service. This light-touch solution incorporates the National Breast Screening Services’ system into the digital imaging workflow of our clients, providing easier and more efficient services.

Why Accenture

Accenture has been providing medical imaging services to the National Health Service (NHS) for almost a decade, benefiting millions of patients in 35-plus NHS hospital Trusts across the UK. Our leading reputation is backed by deep global industry expertise and constant knowledge exchange. Our team is committed to provide solutions with excellent services, choice and peace of mind. We are guided by our history and commitment to the NHS with reach, flexibility, expertise and innovation.

Cloud Radiology Information System (RIS)

Accenture has partnered with HSS to provide CRIS (CCRIS), hosted from Accenture’s Data Centre. CRIS’ function is to manage the radiology department workflow interfacing with the PACS to provide the complete suite of functions for medical imaging. CCRIS is vendor agnostic, supporting all versions of PACS.

Our managed service expertise goes far beyond a 24x7 helpdesk: it is high-quality service management, rapid response and the facts at your fingertips. Accenture’s Medical Imaging Managed Service provides access to an experienced team of service delivery and technical services based in the UK.
