Our Innovation is Revolutionising Healthcare
Chris, one of our Business Graduates, worked on our Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS), which enables images such as x-rays, scans, and any other digital pictures to be securely stored electronically and viewed on screen.
CSC leads an alliance responsible for delivering a high-profile and groundbreaking programme to transform the NHS across large parts of England. The technology enabled change we’ve been involved in implementing provides healthcare professionals with the information they need for diagnosis and treatment, helps NHS organisations operate more efficiently, and ultimately improves patient care.
More than 100,000 NHS professionals use over 1,800 systems provided by us. One example is our Emergency Care Solution for paramedics, which helps tackle the issue of legibility and accuracy when recording patient data. This innovative and award-winning mobile technology allows ambulance crews to transmit vital patient information to hospitals ahead of arrival. It also provides a wealth of information, such as drug side effects, at a paramedic’s fingertips.
Another example is in general practice, where over 1,300 practices are making use of our solution that allows patient records to be securely accessed, and shared in real time by authorised professionals. We are also responsible for delivering the technology that texts patients information about their appointments – cutting down on missed visits and saving practitioners time and money.
The introduction of our Picture Archiving Communication System (PACS) enables images such as x-rays, scans, and any other digital pictures to be securely stored electronically and viewed on screens. This allows doctors and other health professionals instant access to information which means better decision making and faster treatment. Chris, a Business Studies graduate from London South Bank University, has played an important part in the programme, which has revolutionised turnaround times for patient screening through clinical reporting and by speeding up diagnosis. As a Service Delivery Manager, Chris has worked to change and improve processes for managing incidents and worked with technical teams to create knowledge-sharing documentation.
