It has been more than two years under the pandemic, and our lives have changed forever, especially in terms of how we work. Companies and institutions that recognised the benefits of flexible workplaces and WFH were quick to implement these new ways of working with great success in productivity and improved well-being for their workforce. Solutions such as video conferences rendered distances long or short irrelevant and removed communication barriers. The healthcare sector equally underwent those changes with, amongst others, the introduction of flexible workstations.

The NHS Integrated Care System (ICS) aims to remove existing silos between hospitals and Primary Care, physical and mental health services, NHS and council services, and instead deliver the support people need in the form of a joined-up health and care service from local councils, the NHS, and other partners.
 
This approach presents healthcare providers with the opportunity to explore new service workflows and technologies as they seek to keep up with evolving patient expectation and demands.

Radiology services are becoming increasingly decentralised and personalised, offering a far more convenient pathway for diagnosis and treatment. A major enabling factor for this shift is sector-wide digital transformation, providing new technology and information systems that allow data consolidation and sharing between clinicians. These tools will make it easier for healthcare professionals to access the necessary information from any location and at any time, helping them to diagnose and treat their patients better and sooner.

ISS recognises that the NHS is an invaluable national service, made possible by the power of its people; people with the expertise and empathy to save, change and improve the lives of their patients.
