CASE STUDY discharge recorded and that helps wards to make sure discharge dates are met , which , in turn , helps to address the huge pressure we are under .”
Over the next six months , Dartford is planning to deploy Alcidion ’ s clinical noting , discharge notes , e-prescribing and clinical decision support . It is also further rolling out its use of Miya Flow as a ‘ command centre ’ that will provide full visibility of the bed and patient status to help address winter pressures , across the Trust and Integrated Health Partnership Board .
The Trust has also agreed a contract with Alcidion to use Miya Precision to replace the legacy system that it uses to run its diabetes service . This specialist application will expand the use of the platform from inpatients to include outpatient services , where it will also be integrated with the Dartford developing personal health record from Patients Know Best .
Lynette Ousby , Managing Director at Alcidion , said : “ NHS organisations like our customers in South Tees and Dartford and Gravesham have shown that technology can be a power for good in the NHS when it is designed to meet real clinical needs .
“ We are incredibly proud to be part of their journeys to improve care with Digital Transformation . This is ultimately about helping to make it easier to do the right thing for patients , at a time when nurses , doctors and other healthcare professionals are working in extremely challenging circumstances .
“ These examples clearly show how effective technology can help the service in meeting those needs , especially at critical times like the imminent winter pressures .” p
