Fortius PACS link to PACSMail Cloud delivers fast-track image exchange

A recognised centre of excellence staffed by the U.K.’s leading orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists and sports and exercise physicians, the Fortius Clinic has linked their PACS to the PACSMail Cloud network to create a fast-track image exchange for patient scans.

About Fortius Clinic

Fortius Clinic, in London, is a leading orthopaedic and sports injury clinic that specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. Founded by a group of 12 orthopaedic surgeons and three radiologists in 2010, the group has established an international reputation for treatment in orthopaedics and sports medicine, becoming the clinic of choice for many of the UK’s elite sports professionals and recognised as a FIFA Medical Centre of Excellence.

Since opening their first office in September 2011, Fortius Clinic has grown quickly, and now operates four state of the art centres across London. The consultant group has also grown rapidly, today employing over 80 world class specialists including orthopaedic surgeons, radiologists and sports and exercise physicians. Together, they provide custom care to a wide range of patients from everyday people to professional footballers, cricketers, rugby players, Olympic athletes and more.

The biennial Fortius International Sports Injury Conference,(link) is to be held again this year in central London, and will focus all aspects of prevention, treatment, recovery and return to play.

The growing need for image exchange

With diagnostic imaging playing an ever-increasing role in treatment and rehabilitation planning, the ability to share images with colleagues is of critical importance in delivering the best possible results for patients. Fortius receives referrals from both national and international clients and also from sports organisations whose medical teams operate across both regional and organizational borders.

Linking the Fortius PACS to the PACSMail Cloud network allows referring doctors to easily share prior scans with Fortius clinicians and also to receive copies of new ones as soon as these are done.

Linking our IntelePACS to the PACSMail Cloud network means we are able to exchange scans easily and quickly on-line, providing fast-track image access by our orthopaedic surgeons and radiologists. PACSMail acts as an image networking hub for us, with images flowing seamlessly into our PACS workflow. This avoids the need for CD’s and we can also receive scans directly from other clinic PACS as needed. We can also use PACSMail Cloud as an upload portal for scans we receive on CD or ZIP in our London clinics” said Lucy Ball, Director of Radiology at the Fortius Clinic.
