Insignia secures U.K. contract for West Midlands

PACS provider Insignia Medical Systems will provide its regional sharing service to the West Midlands Genomic Medicine Centre in the U.K.

The center, led by University Hospitals Birmingham National Health Service (NHS) Foundation Trust, is one of 13 genomic medicine centers established to deliver NHS England's 100,000 Genomes Project. However, the center brings together 17 acute NHS trusts across the West Midlands to provide regional image sharing.

The 100,000 Genomes Project aims to improve understanding, diagnosis, and treatment of rare diseases and cancer by combining the genomic data of participants with their medical records, also producing a resource for future research.

Working with all 17 partner trusts, Insignia will provide its InSight sharing service to deliver real-time regional clinical viewing of images to support delivery of the project. The first sites are due to go live this summer, and the entire project is due for completion by March 2018.
