Transforming Patient Pathways

The National Health Executive hosted a discussion, at the NHE365 Digital Healthcare virtual event, regarding trying to cure the growing backlog from covid.

The NHS have been exploring different ideas to try and help with this by using digital technologies such as virtual wards, real time digital and video-based programmes. Using digital transformation is enabling the use of new care pathways to ensure efficient flow of patients in OR out of hospital, which help save a further backlog of patients.

The panel included

Sayta has a deep understanding around digital healthcare as she is Head of Clinical for Accurx; which is a software company working in the health sector, to allow healthcare teams and patients connect with each other through their platform.

Dr Camille Carroll also has a depth of knowledge around transforming patient pathways, as in 2019 she led a funded project which included 150 patients around the UK who suffer with Parkinson’s a new service that utilises user-friendly technology and traditional resources to support home-based care.

All panelists work high up within the health sector, for example Rhidian was appointed Chief Clinical Information officer for Wales in 2015 and continues to work part time clinical practice as an NHS Consultant Surgeon specialising in urological cancers.

We asked important questions to the panelists such as ‘What is the role of digital technology in transforming patient pathways?’, ‘What do you feel the dependencies for transformational change are?’ and How will we know we are successful in pathway transformation?’. Camille answered, “Digital innovation can have a huge impact on care as It can empower patients through reminders on an app, and it is difficult for some patients to travel to their appointments”.

These questions were then followed by answers from our panelists. Camille answered, “Digital innovation can have a huge impact on care as It can empower patients through reminders on an app, and it is difficult for some patients to travel to their appointments”.
