In this role Dr Edwards will take responsibility for the delivery of McKesson IWS’ comprehensive enterprise medical imaging product suite across all its international markets, including the UK.

Dr Edwards’ appointment further underlines IWS’s commitment to delivering market-leading, innovative enterprise medical imaging solutions to its clients globally. His appointment follows the recent announcement of Conserus, a suite of flexible, vendor-neutral solutions for healthcare IT enterprise and diagnostic imaging.

Dr Edwards has held senior management positions at McKesson since 2002, as vice presidenti of engineering and, most recently, as vice president of services and imaging operations. He is a proven, strong leader who is focused on customer service excellence at an international level. Additionally, he brings an indepth understanding of the McKesson imaging product suite and how it can help international customers improve productivity and ultimately deliver better patient care.

Commenting on his appointment, he said: “We recognise the ever-increasing need for organisations to improve imaging clinical effectiveness, resource utilisation and quality. With our diagnostics imaging solutions in place in over 50% of UK trusts, as well as the largest single national implementation of a fully-integrated picture archiving and communication system (PACS) and radiology information system (RIS) as part of Ireland’s NIMIS project, I believe we are uniquely positioned to help clients achieve what they need: the right, relevant patient data at the right time.

“I am therefore very proud to be in a position to work with our international teams to take our innovative solution suite, in which we are continually investing, to our clients across the globe.”
