City Hospitals Sunderland NHS Foundation Trust in the UK has participated in a pan-European pilot study conducted by Dell to assess the beneficial impact of a unified clinical archiving (UCA) solution.

The analysis, conducted by Dell in association with Intel and BridgeHead Software, concluded that the solution increased the amount of time that clinicians spent with patients and reduced the time that the hospital’s ophthalmic department spent dealing with hard copy images.

Andy Hart, City Hospitals Sunderland IT and IG director, said: "We worked with Dell in deploying the UCA solution as a pilot focused primarily on archiving in our ophthalmic imaging system.

"The UCA solution has enabled clinical applications to allow our staff to spend more time with patients and on patient care rather than dealing with hard-copy images."

The solution will allow clinicians to simplify sharing, management and retention of medical imaging data used in radiology, cardiology, neurosurgery, endoscopy, mammography and digital pathology.
