U.K. National Health Service Trusts Select Insignia Medical Enterprise Imaging Solution

Three organizations are now live while 639 million images are migrated for sharing across the region

July 24, 2017 — Insignia Medical Systems has been selected to supply three National Health Service (NHS) Trusts working in partnership under the banner of the Essex Success Regime (ESR), with a fully integrated picture archiving and communication system (PACS) solution at each hospital. Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals Foundation Trust, Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust and Southend University Hospital Foundation Trust were looking to transform how they deliver radiology services within the region by not just sharing images, but also sharing services.

With contracts signed in February, all three trusts — Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust  (MEHT), Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (SUHFT) and Basildon and Thurrock University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (BTUH) — are now live, while the migration of 639 million images — some 155TB of data — from across the three Trusts is being completed using Insignia’s Migration Service.

Chief Information Officer Martin Callingham, responsible for all three trusts said, “This is the first major project that we have delivered since entering into partnership under the Success Regime and demonstrates our commitment to delivering high-quality patient care and services across the three hospitals. Insignia have provided the solution to sharing of images and data across Mid and South Essex resulting in a seamless service benefiting patients and staff.”

Keiran Donovan, IT projects and transition manager, Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust commented, “Alongside a functionality-rich user interface in InSight, Insignia demonstrated their extensive experience in managing complex migration projects by completing the work ahead of time.

“The deployment team have been incredibly supportive throughout the entire PACS replacement process, and the comprehensive training program from Insignia is something we haven’t experienced before in other technology-based projects.”

Having successfully implemented their enterprise image sharing services across a number of regions, including eight Trusts in the South West, three Trusts in the Midlands and a regional sharing domain across Oxfordshire, Insignia work hand-in-hand with the NHS to provide seamless image sharing, to support a wide range of clinical requirements.

This service will enable the entire regional imaging patient record to be automatically presented to the end users within their own PACS system, including the reports from the three different radiology information systems (RIS). Unlike other methods, the Insignia Sharing Systems keeps all shared studies up to date in real-time to ensure that and changes are immediately reflected across the region.
