Why outsource my echocardiography service for remote reporting?

Our services, led by senior clinicians, address these key issues head on. You’ll receive secure access to our cloud-based echo system and experienced clinicians seven days a week, out-of-hours and on-demand, giving you the reassurance that when you need support, we’ll be there.

We’re underpinned by the conviction that we can improve patient care and experience. Whether by way of extra hands onsite, reporting and reviewing support via our reporting team, or training and mentoring support for junior and non-accredited staff, our goal is to be your consistent, specialist open-support partner.

Should remote technology be used in this way?

Yes, absolutely. We use a secure, cloud-based, zero-footprint viewing and reporting platform which allows you to store, view, and refer your exams through a secure web browser on any PC.

In 2008, the King’s Fund report ‘Technology in the NHS’ had this to say about the decade to follow:

“The Ideal Scenario 2018: The benefits of adopting technology are fully harnessed; clinicians and other staff within the sector, as well as consumers, are comfortable using technology and do make full use of it. The use of technology enables improvements in the quality of care received by patients, in addition to offering an improvement in their overall experience of contact with the health service.”

How can we, and our patients, be assured that their data is managed and stored securely in the cloud?

Information security is of the upmost importance to us here at ICS Diagnostics. Our parent company ICS Group ensures we are General Data Protection Laws (GDPR) and our Information Governance statement is updated regularly to ensure we’re meeting the latest requirements. In addition, the Group:

•   Holds IG Toolkit & Cyber Essentials certification

•   Has a dedicated Caldicott Guardian to ensure adherence to all Caldicott Principles

Our technology partner hosts and manages patient healthcare data via Amazon Web Services for a number of large established healthcare providers across the UK and holds the highest possible ISO certifications. They are committed to complying with all regulatory requirements, including the highest levels of data protection and safeguarding.

We work very closely with our customers and their IT services to ensure data security is a priority throughout the entire process. Once each report has been completed it is returned to our customer’s location of choice and can simultaneously be sent to the referrer for timely management or action.

How will you find echocardiographers?

Our in-depth understanding of the UK’s cardiology diagnostics industry has allowed us to take a holistic view and adopt a different approach. We’re backed by Independent Clinical Services (ICS). ICS owns and operates a range of specialist healthcare brands - including a number of leading NHS framework staffing businesses - and is one of Europe’s largest healthcare staffing providers.

ICS Diagnostics was born out of the ICS Group physiologist staffing network. We have an extensive UK-wide network of experienced accredited echocardiographers available to support your service both onsite and remotely, wherever your location.
