Word spreads about innovative image sharing platform

NHS staff and members of the public have found out more about the award-winning Regional Image Sharing Platform (RISP) at two recent public engagement events.

In April 2018, hundreds of patients, relatives and staff spoke to the core RISP team about the platform, how it will improve image sharing between trusts, and the benefits this will bring to patient care.

Patient information leaflets were also distributed; these are also available in trusts across the West Midlands that are using RISP. 

Key teams also meet regularly at user group meetings, which discuss future plans for RISP, governance and financial considerations, as well as the best way to communicate the benefits of RISP to staff, patients and others. The most recent user group meeting, in July 2018, brought together staff from IT, Information Governance and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) teams from across the 16 West Midlands trusts taking part in the 100,000 Genomes Project.

RISP is currently live across ten Trusts, with all 16 Trusts expected to be using the system by the end of 2018.
