When national hospital restrictions were introduced at the height of the Covid19 pandemic, new ways of working were required to minimise contact between patients and staff, to protect both groups from any risk of exposure and infection. A safe and sustainable solution was essential to support improved workflow, collect and keep patient images secure, document patient consent and collect all associated metadata, while reducing the need for any none-essential contact. Andrea Jones, Medical Photography Team Leader, choose our Clinical Uploader App to provide an award winning solution.
Andrea employed the App in conjunction with the Royal Preston Hospital’s existing FotoWare DAM System to provide a comprehensive solution and was nominated for the 2020 FotoWare Media Management Award and came out a clear winner.
Julia Hatfield from Reuters, was one of the Media Management Award 2020 judges and stated “with today’s technology it’s relatively easy to do lots of things, but doing them well, responsibly, and leveraging those technologies as a force for good is far more challenging. Those organizations that take that path, stand out, and deserve all the accolades they receive.”
Congratulations Andrea for leading and implementing this solution at such a critical time!!
