Speaking about this significant investment, David Williams, Group IT Director said,
“We’re delighted to announce this substantial investment in technology at Aspen Healthcare which demonstrates our continued commitment to excellence. The upgraded Sectra PACS and RIS software will bring about a number of improvements both for consultants and staff working across Aspen Healthcare, and ultimately improve the services we deliver to hundreds of thousands of patients every year.”

What are PACS and RIS systems?
PACS, or picture archiving and communication system, is a medical imaging technology used for storing, retrieving, presenting and sharing images produced by imaging departments including X-ray, CT scan, MRI and ultrasound machines.
A radiology information system (RIS) is a networked software system for managing medical imagery and associated data. A RIS is especially useful for tracking radiology imaging orders and billing information, and is often used in conjunction with PACS and to manage image archives, record-keeping, appointments and reports.
