Swansea Bay goes live with national image viewing

Secondary care clinicians in Swansea Bay University Health Board are the latest to benefit from a function within the Welsh Clinical Portal that allows them to view patient images from other health boards in Wales. 

Using the web client Mobility, clinicians can view images that are associated with a radiology report displayed in WCP, even if those images are located in another health board.  Sharing images electronically across boundaries assists clinicians in making informed decisions, while reducing administration costs.

Swansea Bay and Velindre NHS Trust recently implemented the system, following Powys, Hywel Dda, Cwm Taf and Cardiff and Vale health boards.
