The core West Midlands Regional Image Sharing Platform (RISP) team has recently engaged with clinicians at a variety of events across the region.
In May 2018, the team presented at the Naughton Dunn Orthopaedic Conference at the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital. The team also spoke to dozens of Emergency Medicine clinicians from the West Midlands at an Emergency Medicine Continuing Engagement Forum (EMCEF) held at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB). Some of the clinical RISP advocates at the EMCEF meeting included Professor Keith Porter, Professor of Clinical Traumatology and Dr Umesh Salanke, Emergency Medicine Consultant.
The RISP team secured the opportunity for a poster presentation at the prestigious United Kingdom Radiological and Radiation Congress (UKRC). The event is the largest multidisciplinary congress in the world, showcasing the knowledge, skills and contribution of a variety of professional groups and industry within diagnostic imaging and radiation oncology. The event was held in Liverpool over 2 – 4 July 2018.
RISP, which provides a faster, easier method of image transfer between trusts, is currently live across ten trusts in the West Midlands. All 16 Trusts that are taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project are expected to be using RISP by December 2018.
