Following a great discussion with our CTO, some thoughts on why we need Digital by Design and not Digital by Default when thinking about #digitalhealth https://t.co/zO4mkFTL6f
The Pennine Acute Organisation is currently entirely reliant on paper outcome forms for:
Patients who have attended an outpatient clinic.
The problem with paper outcome forms include:
Cost of printing and securely destroying the paper forms.
Delays in the next step of a patient journey.
Income is also lost when procedures are not coded.
RTT Pathway - risk of offering patients outcomes that breach 18 week targets.
Features of Appointment e-Outcome that deliver quality improvement and digital innovation in healthcare settings include:
Accurate capture of all outcome data, instantly updated to the PAS
A single, digital form completed by the clinician at their computer immediately following an appointment
Clinician-activated ‘Action required’ functions to alert admin staff , including ‘book follow up appointment’
The e-Outcome Project is scheduled to roll out of a New Web Application for recording OP clinic outcome across Pennine Acute by Feb 2021.
The first go-live is scheduled with ENT in July 2020.
