Big questions around diagnostics and technology to be discussed at UK Imaging & Oncology Congress

Change Healthcare to engage UKIO congress on the modernisation of NHS diagnostics, how technology is impacting, the role of AI, the future of teaching, and practical answers to regionalisation.

Delegates at the UK Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO) will be able to engage with global healthcare technology specialist Change Healthcare in June, around some of the biggest challenges facing diagnostic imaging and radiology in the NHS. 

Change Healthcare, which works with trusts throughout the NHS, is known for one of the largest technology deployments of its kind in the world, providing a country wide picture archiving and communication system, or PACS, for Ireland’s National Integrated Medical Imaging System (NIMIS), and most recently taking Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust live with its enterprise imaging technology in January 2019.

The organisation provides cardiology technology to around 70% of NHS trusts in England, works with a growing number of UK trusts in enterprise medical imaging, and has helped to solve challenges for diagnostic teams in more than 3,000 imaging facilities worldwide.

Senior members of the Change Healthcare team will be available throughout the UKIO congress, being held in Liverpool from 10-12 June 2019, to discuss real challenges and developments facing the NHS, ranging from advances in artificial intelligence through to navigating region wide approaches to diagnostics. Throughout the world the technology specialist supports more than 100 enterprise scale, multi-hospital imaging programmes, and will be on hand to share lessons.

Richard Turner, executive director, international operations at Change Healthcare, said: “UKIO is great opportunity for us to continue to engage with people at the forefront of imaging and oncology in the NHS. Sharing best practice is key to realising ambitions around early and effective diagnoses, and in enhancing the diagnostic capability of the health service. We look forward to learning more from delegates around their priorities in this rapidly evolving environment, and sharing our experiences from working with healthcare providers in the NHS and around the world.”
