Connolly To Get New Medical Imaging System

Monday, June 18, 2012

At the March meeting of the HSE Forum I looked for a progress report on the National Integrated Medical Imaging System at Connolly Hospital. NIMIS will make Ireland’s radiological services ‘filmless’ and enable secure and rapid movement of patient image data throughout the health service. 

This new imaging system allows doctors to electronically view their patient’s diagnostic images, such as X-Rays and CT Scans, quickly and easily. The rapid access and availability of patient’s records to health professionals is a significant step for patient safety. NIMIS will be installed in 35 hospitals within a three year period at a cost of over €40m

I have been informed that Connolly Hospital is listed for Phase 3 implementation of NIMIS. The NIMIS National Team visited the hospital at the end of March and were happy with the progress to date. Connolly has met all timelines with regard to the requirements from the National Team and Hospital Management have confirmed that the go live date for NIMIS in Connolly is the first week of October 2012.
