The team at Wilmslow Health Centre recently gave their reflections on their total triage system and how it has positively impacted the practice.
Reducing unnecessary appointments is the single biggest thing that needs to be addressed in the way hospitals are managing outpatients, if they are ever going to achieve full elective recovery and increase hospital capacity. Here are three ways I've seen it done successfully.
NHS England is asking trusts to take control of elective recovery by validating waiting lists, reducing all waiting times and reducing outpatient follow-up appointments. It's a daunting task, and Trusts are in need of immediate solutions that will enable them to move through the backlog quickly and efficiently.
Patient flow has become increasingly challenging and fragmented in recent years, contributing to some of the biggest challenges the NHS faces today. So how do we think patient flow can be revolutionised, using Accurx across the system?
On 6th January 2023, Meadowgreen Health Centre moved to a total triage system with Accurx. Six months on, staff and patients are happier, DNAs are down and Meadowgreen are receiving glowing reviews from public bodies. We caught up with Practice Manager Joanne Johnson to get the full story.
In 2020, Clinical Director of SHAPE Primary Care Network Dr Bharan Kumar started using Accurx’s patient questionnaires and batch messaging to improve hypertension outcomes. We recently caught up with Bharan to hear how Accurx has helped his team to control blood pressure readings by 19% and cut the time spent contacting hypertension patients by 75%.
