Paper Abstract

The role of the Project Leader in implementing a hospital-wide PACS is to lead the PACS Project Team. This involves ensuring that the structure of this team fairly represents the entire hospital, convening regular Project Team meetings, chairing these meetings and drawing up their agenda and documenting their minutes. Between meetings the Project Leader must follow up action items, verifying that they are being implemented in a timely fashion. The Project Leader is ultimately responsible for the decisions of the Project Team, in particular the assessment of the progress of the whole project, step by step. Experience of the implementation of the Hammersmith Hospital PACS is described in relation to the role of the Project Leader and Project Team.
