All heathboards in Wales are now using the Welsh Radiology Information System (WRIS), also known as RadIS2.
The system - which performs functions such as patient scheduling and clinical reporting involving medical images such as x-rays, CT and MRI scans and ultrasound - rolled out across Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board (West) late in 2018, completing its national implementation.
WRIS works in conjunction with the Picture Archiving and Communications System (PACS) to manage the storage, retrieval, distribution and presentation of images and allows the sharing of these images nationally.
Our RadIS Support team is working closely with local IT departments in both Morriston and Singleton hospitals in Swansea and early feedback has been positive.
"For the first time, all hospitals in Wales are running their radiology departments using the National WRIS," says RadIS Senior Product Specialist, Amanda Carter. "This means that all users across Wales can work towards a common goal and drive radiology services forward together. This is great achievement. It has been a significant challenge on many levels but the journey has been made easier by the commitment, professionalism and determination of all involved."
