Software Development

Health Education Yorkshire and the Humber - Quality Management

Health Education Yorkshire and The Humber is one of the 13 LETBs established by Health Education England in 2012/13 to monitor quality and training of students and trainees in NHS England.  A part of this process requires a Dean’s Report to be submitted to the GMC twice a year as a spreadsheet recording concerns, recommended actions and progress along with examples of good practice.  Each submission typically took one person, a month or more to collate the information from various sources.

Sheffield Teaching Hospitals - Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service

The Haemato-Oncology Diagnostic Service for South Yorkshire is based at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (STH) and was set up to provide a centralised service within the county for the diagnosis of blood related cancer cases. Biopsy and other samples taken from patients suspected of having a blood related cancer are sent to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals for lab testing. Some samples may be forwarded to Sheffield Childrens’ Hospital (SCH) for further, specialist genetic tests.

Community Paediatrics, St James' Hospital - Database Design & Data Migration

A new Child Protection database developed by Sheffield based software house, Illuminaries Ltd, went live in June to support the work of Community Paediatrics at Leeds Teaching Hospitals. The new browser based, patient management system, holding clinical records and images of reported child abuse, is accessible to clinicians and secretarial staff from Leeds Teaching Hospitals sites across the city.

University of Sheffield Radiology Department - MRI Database

The MRI Database, developed for The University of Sheffield’s Academic Department of Radiology, is our oldest system. The MRI Scanner at The Royal Hallamshire Hospital had been in operation for 3 years and had performed scans on about 1000 patients, when, in 1993 Illuminaries was commissioned to develop a specialist radiology administration system to manage MR scan episodes, appointments, reporting and billing.
