A ten year nation-wide project called the Picture Archiving & Communications System (PACS) has been undertaken by the NHS to streamline diagnostic services.
It makes a paradigm shift of all NHS hospitals from wet film processing to computerised digital technology for all images. It aims to increase efficiencies in hospitals, reduce storage space for recording the images whilst reducing costs at the same times. Milton Keynes General Hospital is part of this ambitious project looking for a strategic partner who could pull together the various elements of the solution to support its move to digital imaging. Having already worked with Milton Keynes hospital for many of its hardware requirements, Dell would be able to demonstrate the benefits of its multi-vendor approach, working with the leading third parties providers of PACS equipment to bring together the right parts for the final, tailored solution.
