|New service connects to Welsh Clinical Portal and GP Test Requesting
A new Diagnostics Reports Service (DRS) allowing Welsh Clinical Portal and GP Test Requesting users a view of diagnostic reports for their patient, regardless of where they are produced, will be piloted at Cwm Taf Health Board and Velindre NHS Trust this summer.
Diagnostic reports are made up of information collected after tests and procedures are completed and allow clinicians to study a more complete picture of the patient's journey.
The DRS system will initially contain pathology and radiology reports, but has been designed so that it can add diagnostics from various departments, for example from cardiology or endoscopy.
DRS is funded by the Health Technology and Telehealth Fund, encouraging the adoption and use of innovative technology.
