Stephen Davies delivers Teleradiology lecture at UKRC 2014
This year’s UK Radiological Congress (UKRC) saw Stephen Davies, Medical Director, deliver a lecture on Clinical Governance and Quality Processes in a session on Night-time Teleradiology. The session was very well received with the focus on the requirements for setting up regional NHS Out of Hours Teleradiology Network.
During this session Stephen Davies raised a number of key considerations for multi-Trust working, especially common policies and protocols, an over-arching clinical governance framework and the increasing delivery requirements to meet the clinical pathways for stroke and trauma. He highlighted the 10% audit rates in the Independent Sector and the benefits to patients and learning for radiologists that follows.
NOTES FOR EDITORS
MEDICA operates the largest remote radiology reporting network in the UK.
Its objective is to provide high value radiology reporting services that are demonstrably of at least the same high clinical standard as those produced by radiologists working in the nation’s hospitals.
Its 130+ radiologists – all UK-based with a minimum as two years’ experience at consultant level in the NHS – report on patient scans derived from X-Ray, MRI, CT, Ultrasound and other medical technologies..
Each consultant is equipped at home with a state-of-the-art PACS (Picture Archiving and Communications System) workstation. Connecting directly into the secure RIS (Radiology Information System) at the hospital where the patient was scanned, consultants provide both verbal and detailed written reports on the scans they have received. These essential reports enable doctors at the hospital to determine the best course of treatment for their patients.
