Technology boost for cervical screening in Wales
DP Medical Systems Ltd has secured a deal with Cervical Screening Wales to provide its pioneering image capture system for gynaecological examinations – MediScan – to hospitals across the country.
26 MediScan systems have been purchased by Cervical Screening Wales (CSW) – the Public Health Wales body responsible for the cervical screening programme in Wales – and will be installed in 19 hospital sites.
The service will be using a part of the MediScan software to interface with CSW’s existing software for the capture of vital images during gynaecological examinations. The still images will be captured in real-time and stored against the patient record for retrieval anywhere in the hospital.
The MediScan system uses a simple to operate user interface and an optional question and answer-based approach to data entry. Its digital still images are seen as benchmark quality by leading clinicians and have been used for illustration in medical texts.
Owen Pemberton, Commercial Director at DP Medical Ltd, said: “MediScan will provide clinicians working across the field of cervical screening throughout Wales with superior image capture technology, meaning a more efficient service for healthcare providers – and ultimately, patients.”
