Award Ribbon Circle

2024 iTnews Benchmark Awards – Finalist, Best Health Project

Medical imaging is often considered the visual piece of a diagnostic puzzle for clinicians when providing patient care.

eHealth NSW, in conjunction with Local Health Districts (LHDs), identified a need for a unified statewide RIS-PACS solution to replace existing legacy systems and improve medical imaging integration capabilities.

The RIS-PACS program unified different imaging, archive and IT systems into one robust statewide platform, increasing clinical information sharing and improving diagnostic processes across NSW Health.

This work was acknowledged as finalist in the 2024 iTnews Benchmark Awards in the Best Health Project category, which recognises the projects and people behind the best IT initiatives.

Since launching in 2020, RIS-PACS has supported the migration of more than 28 million historical images across 86 Hospitals, including the integration of 1,500 pieces of speciality imaging equipment.

It reflects one of the most significant digital changes to NSW Health to date, resulting in the standardisation of radiology practices across Australia’s largest public health system.
