Hemel Hempstead, UK: Needing little introduction, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust is one of the country’s largest trusts and teaching centres, providing acute and specialist healthcare for nearly two million people in north west London. The Trust comprises of 5 hospital sites - Charing Cross, St Mary’s, Queen Charlotte’s & Chelsea, Hammersmith and Western Eye – and is one of just seven dedicated health science centres in the UK. With academic links to the Imperial College itself, the Trust puts research into practice by applying medical studies and disciplines into their acute healthcare environment. Imperial College Healthcare invests significantly in its staff and resources. With over a million outpatients, 280,000 A&E attendances and 186,000 inpatients, a team of 10,000 doctors, nurses and health professionals support the Trust. One busy area of the hospital is the Imaging Department; nearly 500 staff and the best state-of-the-art diagnostic equipment offer a comprehensive range of radiology examinations. A truly integral part of the Trust’s clinical remit, Imaging uses the latest techniques to support Imperial College Healthcare’s teams in the diagnosis and treatment of the full range of medical problems and their vast range of apparatus supports the 119 modalities and 440,000 examinations. To manage radiology processes and to accommodate the sheer extent of patient examinations, Imperial College Healthcare’s Imaging department required sector-specific software solutions to support the department and provide traceability of appointments and clinical documents. From 2012, Imperial College Healthcare adopted a RIS (Radiology Information System) and PACS (Patient Archiving Communication System) from GE. After 3 years of use, the Trust took the decision to investigate new clinical systems to support the hospitals’ radiology processes. Laurence Musker, Radiology IT Programme Manager, comments: “Imperial College Healthcare started the process to procure a new provider of RIS and PACS. We were looking for improvements in our departmental workflow and needed certain efficiencies that an advanced workflow structure could offer”. Laurence had identified that technologies and radiology IT applications had become more sophisticated and innovative within the 3 years in which they had appointed their legacy system. In addition, the Trust’s own requirements were becoming more complex; more patients, larger administration surges and the sector requirement to “go paperless” brought added clerical challenges. It was becoming vital that Laurence and the Imperial College Healthcare team had a RIS and PACS framework that could not only support the department with clinical images, but bring a level of workflow intuition to smooth departmental practices and allow better management of patients and their bookings. In July 2015, after creating process, user and site criteria, Laurence was confident that the Trust could go out to tender with firm RIS/PACS solution stipulations. He comments: “Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust needed a system that had proven success and could work immediately – straight off the shelf. We formerly ran a function-centric system - which did not allow for an efficient workflow in a very busy hospital environment - but times had changed since our early RIS. We had reached a detailed solution specification and criteria for a patient-centric RIS system.” Contract awarded to Soliton IT and Carestream Along with the emphasis on workflow, the Imaging department also stipulated autonomy of image communications - the Trust needed to send medical images which included routing to GPs and external referrals. They needed a concise interface that could be adopted by any of the radiology staff and used intuitively in point-of-care and examination sessions by radiographers where time-keeping and exam diligence where critical factors. The structure of RIS workflow management and PACS imaging support had to integrate seamlessly – both together to create a united enterprise-wide solution and with the Trust’s other clinical systems to enable fluid patient record sharing, reduction in printing tasks and transparency of clinical data. The potential cost and resource investment of 2 new applications meant that Laurence and his team had to see operational improvements and measurable benefits in the new RIS and PACS solution. In 2015, after assessing the market offerings for both RIS and PACS systems, Laurence appointed products from two market-leading vendors, Soliton IT for RIS and Carestream for PACS applications, with the intention of a compressed 1-year transition from the previous GE technology. Soliton IT, a UK-based RIS developer, had previously assured Laurence of their clinical experience with their excellent reputation in Reporting and VR (Voice Recognition) deployments. Soliton IT’s RIS product, Radiology+, provided Imperial College Healthcare with automation of radiology tasks with its advanced workflow dynamic, including modular features which were customised for both the Trust and individual users. Daily tasks such as scheduling patient appointments, protocolling, vetting, data-entry, inter-departmental messaging and departmental reporting tasks were displayed in intuitive worklist fashion, by clinical discipline, for easy identification. Equally, the “assign to” option allowed redistribution of protocolling and reporting tasks to tackle administration surges and reduce backlogs. In addition, Radiology+ offered an innovative statistics-generation element to the RIS; graphical statistical analysis on area performances highlighted, in quantative terms, where areas for improvement lay. Imperial College Healthcare’s principle of becoming a RIS -driven site was rewarded with quick tangible results. The new radiographic workflow of integrated RIS and PACS made huge differences to reporting procedures, and maintaining patient bookings had become easier due to concise and colour-coded scheduling interfaces available to the administration team. Within 3 weeks of deployment, the Trust had reduced their former appointment backlog and patients’ radiology experience had become smooth and more streamlined. The integration of Caresteam Vue PACS brought additional advantages in terms of clinical imaging functionality. Carestream Health is a worldwide provider of medical imaging systems with specialities in X-ray imaging platforms and a particular focus on PACS development. Their leading PACS application, Vue PACS, provided Imperial with the clinical tools and applications needed for radiologists to perform examinations with advanced visualization and 3D post processing. The combined Soliton IT and Carestream solution was already successfully in use in many other hospitals with seamless integration - bringing enhanced functionality to radiology and Imaging departments. Laurence comments on the compatibility of the 2 systems: “Radiology+ and Vue PACS integrate nicely together - both visually as an interface and functionally to offer improved processes to our radiographers, consultants and the radiology administration team. Radiologists found it easy to report and their workload management was easier to handle.” The changeover encompassed significant data migration which, considering both Soliton IT and Carestream’s previous deployments in large NHS Trusts, Laurence was confident could be handled efficiently and meticulously. Over 143TB (5-million studies) had to be migrated from their previous GE live PACS archive to the new application and Soliton IT showed their technical capability of implementing the data transfer for legacy RIS data with their own scripts. Radiology+ and Vue PACS integrated well with Imperial College Healthcare’s other HIS and OCS applications – Cerner PACS/OCS and Sunquest ICE (for the GP Diagnostic Cloud). Completed within 8-months (ahead of the year’s transition deadline), the dual solution went live on 30th May 2016 and is currently in use by over 300 radiology users. Ever considerate of future system potential, Laurence and the Imperial College Healthcare team have already plans to adopt Soliton IT’s Radiology+ Mobile – a portable version of the RIS with quick-fire data capture and optimised security which is suitable for mobile clinicians. Soliton IT’s additional development of the Trust’s Nuclear Medicine workflow also tackles the complex multi-procedure nature of this discipline, incorporating auto-scheduling for the stages of tiered patient bookings and dose management features. Laurence reflects on the Soliton IT and Carestream deployment at Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust: “We had truly set ourselves a challenge with a “Big-Bang” Go Live across 3 large London hospital sites - and we are delighted to announce its success. The Trust was impressed with the integration qualities and emerging improvements of the Carestream and Soliton IT solution, and we were overwhelmed with Soliton IT’s flexibility with our requirements and willingness to adopt, build and develop all our needs into their product.” Maggie Buckley, Project Manager for Soliton IT, was responsible for RIS deployment at Imperial. She comments: “The Imperial College Healthcare implementation introduced several challenges for the Soliton IT Project Team. A previous experience had made the Trust uneasy about the change; we found ourselves working closely with Imperial to both overcome this and instil confidence in the new deployment. This close working relationship enabled us to address concerns, maintain project momentum and overcome any day-to-day issues which this complex installation presented. Imperial College Healthcare’s unique development requirements, whilst technically challenging, were successfully fulfilled and have since been incorporated into our standard deployment package. This will ultimately be of benefit to all our current and future customers. This multifaceted and high-pressure project benefitted from Soliton IT’s commitment and pro-active approach. As a result, we developed an excellent working relationship with the Trust which shall continue throughout the lifetime of the contract.” “When faced with the challenge of bidding to replace the legacy RIS-PACS Solution at Imperial College Healthcare - which included implementing and migrating legacy RIS and PACS data against a very aggressive timetable with associated penalties and liabilities - it became clear that Carestream, as a prospective Prime Contractor for the RIS-PACS-VNA solution at Imperial, would not be able to implement a 100% Carestream RIS-PACS-VNA solution in the restricted time given. We therefore chose to partner with Soliton IT for the RIS element of the RIS-PACS-VNA bid and were delighted to be awarded Prime Contractor for supply of this solution. Carestream sub-contacted the provision of the RIS to Soliton IT who provided a flexible, innovative and customised solution which met Imperial’s requirements and within the time constraints given. The Soliton IT and Carestream Implementation teams worked well together, as did the Commercial Teams who provided Imperial with the flexibility to choose, customise and optimise their workflow and provided them with the flexibility to adjust workflow as new developments become available and evolve over the duration of the 10 year agreement. Carestream looks forward to continuing to work with Soliton IT to meet the needs of Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust.”

A new report published by the University of Southampton suggests that regulation in the use of composites in marine, rail, oil & gas, and construction could save the UK money. The report suggests that industry and government should work together to put an end to the constraints that currently inhibit the growth and use of composite materials in these sectors. This could bring more than £4 billion worth of benefit to the UK by the year 2030. The paper entitled ‘Modernising composite materials regulations’, was complied by a multidisciplinary team from Southampton’s Faculties of Engineering and the Environment, and Business, Law and Art (Institute of Maritime Law), supported by the Southampton Marine and Maritime Institute and the University’s department for Research and Innovation Services (RIS). ‘As economic and sustainability pressures have grown, so too has pressure increased to reduce energy consumption (including fuel usage) whilst improving both ‘through-life costs’ and installation times,’ a press release said. ‘All of these factors have increased demand for stronger, lighter, more intelligent and more durable materials tailor made for purpose.’ Massive increase In 2013, the global market for composite products was US$68 billion, which is predicted to grow to US$ 105 billion by 2030 (UK Composites Market Study). The UK’s share of this market is £2 billion (around 3%) which is estimated to grow to £12 billion or more by 2030 (2016 UK Composites Strategy). This figure could rise to as high as £16 billion if the sectors that have not previously embraced the use of composites were to experience the same rate of growth as the aerospace sector, where the use of composite materials has increased massively over the last three decades, the report suggests. ‘One of the major inhibitors to the uptake of composites in new sectors is that regulations, codes and standards are often inappropriate for composites,’ added the press release. ‘This is because they are both explicitly and implicitly based on named materials, such as steel, and do not permit consideration of composites applications despite the strengths and benefits of the materials in many cases.’ Regulation in the use of composites in rail could save the UK money.‘Advanced polymer composite materials have a huge potential to shape the modern world,’ said Professor Ole Thybo Thomsen, head of the Infrastructure Research Group at Southampton and co-author of the position paper. ‘The use of composites in aerospace and automobile design is now the norm, but they have much broader potential for use in other sectors such as in building and bridge construction, railway and rail infrastructure, as well as marine and offshore. In aerospace alone, 52% by weight of the latest generation of aircraft are now composed of composite materials. ‘In the UK there is currently very limited coordination and centralisation of the codes and standards data associated with new composite materials,’ added Professor Simon Quinn, director of the University’s Research Institute for Industry (RiFi) and the lead researcher of the paper. ‘There is neither a coherent development of certified testing facilities, nor a formal process for different sectors to share information and best practice. These factors have reduced productivity, discouraged research and development and innovation, and significantly increased the time to market for new composite products. ‘Industry and government have not shared information,’ he added. ‘In the UK there are four government departments dealing with material regulation and the minister with overall responsibility for Health and Safety (the Minister for the Disabled) has neither the mandate nor the resources to harmonise this system. There are also seven agencies involved in regulation, alongside a lack of Suitably Qualified and Experienced Personnel (SQEP), creating a labyrinth of assurance without the guarantee of certification at the end. This is a considerable disincentive to those companies wanting to innovate, and a significant barrier to new companies entering the markets.’ Performance standards The paper recommends that ‘performance’ assessment methods should be adapted to the needs of each sector to make it easier for manufacturers to prove that their materials can perform to the required operational safety and performance standards related to that sector. It also calls for one government department to have overall responsibility for regulation, with representation in other departments. The lead department would work closely with the Composites Leadership Forum (CLF) and would oversee material regulatory policy and management of the centre, would have the responsibility to develop codes and standards, and would authorise both UK and nominated overseas test centers. ‘This approach will increase the value, utility and sustainability of the UK’s composites research and by speeding up the ‘route to market’, allowing the UK to both achieve and maximise its predicted market share and prevent the more agile manufacturing nations using our research to gain a first-mover competitive advantage,’ said Rear Admiral Rob Stevens, the lead author of the paper. ‘The next step is create a task group sponsored by government and including key players from the regulatory bodies, industry and academia to take the new regulatory proposition forward in industries that are not utilising composite materials to their full potential.’ An Executive Summary of the paper is available online.

GREENVILLE, S.C., Feb. 21, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eRAD announced today that it has delivered robust new features to its RIS customers in several updates released over the last 12 months. These features are the outcome of focused development efforts, designed to bring even higher levels of clinical and business productivity to outpatient imaging centers, specialty reading groups, community hospitals, and other providers in the imaging industry. eRAD is a leading provider of standards-based, web-centric radiology image and data management solutions. It is the information technology division of RadNet, Inc., the largest imaging center network in the U.S. New features include tools for clinical communication, such as RADAR Nudge for HIPAA-compliant instant messaging among clinicians and staff; 24/7/365 access for creating orders and scheduling patients online via the Connect portal; and folders for organizing special cases for tumor boards or any other knowledge sharing. Inbound document capture electronically receives incoming faxes (and other electronically transmitted documents) and auto-routes them as attachments to the appropriate patient record. It also enables electronic creation of new orders and makes these documents available across the enterprise. “With more than 200 new features developed in 2016, we’re delivering even greater workflow optimization,” said Hilary Saltmarsh, eRAD Product Manager. “We’ve had reactions like ‘I didn’t know I needed that, but now I can’t live without it.’ It’s inspiring to watch our customers harness the power of eRAD RIS to achieve their goals.” Patient registration is streamlined with patient ID recognition, which auto-populates a new patient record or an existing record with the simple scan of an identification card, such as the barcode on the back of a driver’s license. RADAR SecurePIC also aids interaction with patients—enabling the secure transfer of a document photo (insurance card, prescription, etc.) from a patient’s smartphone and auto-attaching it to the patient record in the RIS. Recognizing imaging’s pivotal role in the healthcare system as population health and accountable care organizations take root, eRAD RIS has developed a workflow for evaluating appropriateness and medical necessity of procedures—with a status snapshot for administrators via the Connect portal. Additional features include custom validation rules for fields; digital forms to create custom, dynamic tabs with data that can auto-populate the medical report; auto-routing to practice-defined reading groups for efficient and balanced study distribution; and many other tools. Seth Koeppel, Senior Vice President of Sales for eRAD, said: “Our R&D team is a key part of the eRAD story. Whether it’s interoperability, regulatory issues, or just the seemingly small workflow actions that free up a radiologist’s time—we’re constantly looking for ways to improve the tools we make available to our customers. We delivered one great new toolset after the next, month after month, and that speaks to our commitment to the success of eRAD RIS users.” About eRAD, Inc. eRAD offers a complete suite of workflow solutions for the imaging industry. Its 2014 EHR-certified RIS, web-based PACS, and multi-site workflow solutions are used by teleradiology businesses, specialty reading groups, multi-site reading groups, hospitals, and outpatient imaging centers.
