Over the last twenty years in particular, the NHS has been focusing on how to create better care pathways that improve patient outcomes. Improving care pathways has a positive impact on clinical outcomes, cost reduction, patient satisfaction, teamwork and process outcomes, but COVID-19 has created a significant disconnect in these pathways meaning patients are either not entering them or not flowing through them as smoothly as they need to.
The administrative elements of managing patients through pathways are significant and, at a time when the NHS is experiencing workforce shortages, routinely take staff away from caring for and reassuring patients. At this King's Fund event, decision points within pathways will be explored and how digital technology can transform how pathways operate, enabling clinicians to better understand where each patient is on the pathway, what they are waiting for and what needs to happen next.
Learn how to improve pathway ‘hand-offs’ and administration, to free up time for staff to care for patients in a more personalised way. The event will include examples of how industry and the NHS can come together to build smarter pathways, using technology to augment the expertise of caregivers.
