Ep 15. A better understanding of tech benefits the patient, Ged Cairns & Matt Jones

On Episode 15 of NHE's Finger on the Pulse podcast, brought to you by Brother UK, regular host Matt Roberts is joined by Ged Cairns and Matt Jones of Brother UK to discuss how IT and technology can directly impact and improve patient care - the only real "currency" which matters across the health sector, as Matt Jones explains.

Our discussions with Brother come on the back of a body of work carried out in partnership between our two organisations, culminating in an audience survey and whitepaper report - which can be downloaded now here - which we reflect on the findings of during the episode.

Patient care is the ultimate goal for all across the health service, as seen throughout our survey of both primary and secondary care members. As Matt Jones explained: "Moving into the public sector, it was something I was immediately struck by. The currency that people talk about it patient care.

"Their ultimate goal is to increase levels of patient care."

And as we discuss, both through Brother's products and more widely, there are real opportunities to be found across the health service. That can be everything from significant changes, from the labelling of blood bottles as one example from the episode, through to the marginal gains which all add up across an NHS employee's shift or working day.

NHE365 Virtual Festival: Digital Healthcare

The integration of new technology, such as using virtual outpatient appointments instead of face-to-face reviews of patients in the hospital. Adapting the ways in which our NHS workers serve people has been critical in continuing to provide high-quality treatment, a positive patient experience and preventing Covid-19 transmission during the pandemic. Our healthcare sector has the potential to transform the way we continue to provide essential services while also improving patient care. But how easy is the integration of these innovations into routine NHS practice?

On the 28th of October, at the NHE365 Virtual Hospitals & Technology Enabled Care online event, we will be discussing patient flow and experience, reducing waiting times, reducing the patient backlog and increasing technology adoption. Will you be attending?
