Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Selects Change Healthcares Radiology PACS

Change Healthcare will replace current PACS and provide full integration with CUH’s EPR & RIS

Change Healthcare (formerly McKesson Imaging & Workflow Solutions) is pleased to announce that it has been chosen as Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s new Radiology PACS provider. Change Healthcare will be delivering its Radiology PACS, Conserus Image Repository, and Conserus Workflow Intelligence solution, replacing the Trust’s existing PACS at Addenbrooke’s Hospital with full migration of Radiology and Echo PACS data.

Following a multi-stage, comprehensive procurement process, Change Healthcare was selected for its overall scoring as a comprehensive, modern Enterprise Imaging solution which will also meet CUH’s future enterprise imaging requirements. Change Healthcare’s proven capability in delivering successfully and at scale, and its proven integrations with the existing EPR were key considerations. In addition, CUH was looking for a technology partner that could demonstrate innovation within its solution and a roadmap that would allow for collaboration within medical imaging research and development.

Hilary Charlesworth, Imaging Operations Manager, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, comments: “The functionality of Change Healthcare’s software, its proven track record, cost effectiveness and collaborative approach made us choose them as our PACS provider.”

In addition to the new PACS, Change Healthcare will be providing CUH with its Conserus Image Repository – a vendor neutral archive (VNA) and Workflow Intelligence, which offers Advanced Radiology workflows including support for RCR Peer Review/Learning, MDT (Multidisciplinary Team) Meeting management, Closed loop Urgent & Critical Findings, Teaching & Education, as well as intelligent worklists for the optimisation of reporting workflows, turnaround times, and SLA performance.

Hilary continues: “The trust wide provision of a PACS system from Change Healthcare can help us deliver improved operational efficiency and gives us the necessary tools to lay the foundations for future innovation.”

Ray Cahill, VP International, Change Healthcare, concludes: “We are delighted to have been selected as Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust’s new Enterprise Imaging solution provider. Cambridge University Hospitals is one of the largest and best-known trusts in the country, a university teaching hospital at the forefront of medical research and development with a worldwide reputation.
