A co-ordinated screening service needs centralized storage, and a server computer to receive data from and send data to users. From the user’s point of use, one local computer is needed to collect information or display patient data from the centralized store. All connections must be secure and meet current local data protection laws. The model of screening determines how best to transfer patient data between server and end-users, and may require a mixed approach to offer the greatest flexibility and reach for screening. There is no doubt that the screening service would continue to evolve with advances in information technology and connectivity.
