Pathology IT Strategy Conference

17-18 November 2008, Leeds

Mid November saw Leeds as the venue for the DH funded Pathology IT Strategy Conference. A group of 150 attendees addressed the task of producing input for a new strategy document. Professional bodies including the RCPath, ACB and IBMS are now collaborating on the follow-up work defining the strategy and undertaking specific projects in support of Pathology Development [more information...].

HL7 pathology messaging was given a strong endorsement, with mentions of it as key technology in several of the presentations given over two days, including the "Next Steps" presentation and the conference closing address by Dr Gifford Batstone, National Clinical Lead for Pathology.

The programme and presentations are available here...>>

There will be an update on the CFH Pathology project at the next HL7 UK Technical Committee meeting on 9th December.
