Insignia Medical Systems has been selected to supply three Trusts working in partnership under the banner of the ‘Essex Success Regime’ (ESR), with a fully integrated 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, whilst the migration of 639 million images (some 155TB of data) from across the three Trusts is being completed using Insignias proven 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 programme from Insignia is something we haven’t experienced before in other technology based projects.”
