    The chairman of Covid vaccine giant AstraZeneca has said that investment in technology can help the NHS cut costs. Leif Johansson said more spending on areas such as artificial intelligence and screening could prevent illness and stop people going to hospital. The NHS is under severe pressure, with A&E waits at record levels and strike action exacerbating ambulance delays. Mr Johansson said about 97% of healthcare costs come from "when people present at the hospital". He said only the remaining 3% is made up of spending on vaccination, early detection or screening.

    Clive Flashman, Chief Digital Officer I have spoken a number of times in the last 12 months on the need to embed patient safety into the design of new digital health and care innovation. I mentor on a number of digital health accelerator programmes and try to convince all of my mentees that this should be a priority for them, normally with a large degree of success. I do worry however, that with less funding around for this type of innovation in the current economic climate, patient safety will be pushed down the list of priorities that innovators consider when designing and producing thei

    With the distressing spate of news reports about mums and ­babies who weren’t kept safe in hospital, an initiative in the Midlands to improve patient safety in maternal and acute care settings comes as a relief. The newly announced Midlands Patient Safety Research Collaboration will bring together NHS trusts, ­universities and private business to evaluate how digital tools can help clinical decision making and reduce danger for patients. Problems can arise if communication is poor between medics when patients move between departments. Professor Alice Turner of Birmingham Univers

    This report examines the adoption challenge in greater detail, setting out a number of policy recommendations that will transform the HealthTech landscape. The recommendations will centre on: Fast-tracking technology adoption, which we saw is possible during the pandemic. Creating sustainable and long-term funding models for technologies with proven results, rather than patchy “pots” of funding across the system. Improving demand-signalling across the NHS arm-length bodies. Private HealthTech industries are keen to help the public health system, but they need clearer d

    In an eleventh-hour decision NHS England has halted the automatic, blanket roll-out of a scheme that would have given all NHS patients in England prospective online access to their GP-held records the day before it was due to come in. The high-profile scheme to enable patents to automatically view their GP records via the NHS app by 30 November, has been a key digital promise by successive Conservative health secretaries. The last-minute u-turn came following a series of talks between the British Medical Association (BMA) and NHS England, in which the BMA made clear many practices

    The new and re-developed SMASH Dashboard is now ready for rollout across Greater Manchester. The Safety Medication Dashboard (SMASH) has been developed and tested by GM PSTRC researchers. It builds on the same prescribing indicators as PINCER and is a pharmacist-led intervention using audit and feedback. In this 1-hour webinar, we will showcase the new dashboard which utilises the GMCR BI Analytics Platform and provide an overview on how it works, and how it differs from the current platform. We will share the journey the SMASH has been on to this point, and the benefits it will now

    Based on initial system requirements, Williams et al. designed the dashboard’s user interface over three iterations with six GPs, seven pharmacists and a member of the public. Prescribing safety indicators from previous work were implemented in the dashboard. Pharmacists were trained to use the intervention and deliver it to general practices. A web-based electronic dashboard was developed and linked to shared care records in Salford, UK. The completed dashboard was deployed in all but one (general practices in the region. By November 2017, 36 pharmacists had been trained in delivering t

    GP practices can block abusive patients from gaining automatic access to their records online if they pose a ‘risk of harm’ to staff, the Royal College of General Practice has said. Automatic access to patients’ prospective patient records is due to be switched on by the end of this month, following delays related to concerns about patient safety. But the RCGP’s toolkit on access to records said practices can refuse access to online records for patients that pose a risk of harm to others too. The guidance said access should "be refused where there is a clear risk of serious harm

    Greg Price died of complications after testicular cancer surgery, but a review of his case found missed faxes, follow-ups and botched data-sharing ultimately cost the vibrant 31-year-old Alberta man his life. All the missteps in his case meant it took 407 days from his first complaint for Price — an engineer, pilot, and athlete — to be diagnosed with cancer. He died three months after his doctor said he should see a specialist, and while he was being passed between multiple doctors, his health data often was not. Now, his sister, Teri Price, says too little has changed in medical inf

    At least half of integrated care systems (ICS) lack plans for responding to cyberattacks, at a time of increasing cyber risks, HSJ can reveal. The findings also come at a time when the threat posed by cyber attackers is “constantly evolving”, and in the wake of a recent high-profile attack on a supplier to several trusts. In August 2021, NHS England published a framework – What Good Looks Like – to set out what ICSs and member organisations must achieve to be considered digitally mature. Requirements included that all ICSs should have a system-wide plan for “maintaining robust

    “Failing” IT systems in the NHS are a threat to patient safety. medics have warned. Doctors and nurses should not “tolerate problems with IT infrastructure as the norm”, according to a new editorial, published in The BMJ. Experts from Imperial College London and University College London point to an incident in which IT systems at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust – one of the largest hospital trusts in the country – went down for 10 days. The outage, caused by the July heatwave, led to procedures and appointments being postponed for a number of patients. The new ed

    Patient care is still being undermined at NHS mental health trusts and social care providers that were hit by a major cyber attack in August, doctors have warned. Three months after the major attack wiped out NHS systems, patients’ records are missing, safety has been compromised, and medication doses are at risk of being missed amid ongoing “chaos”, i News has been told. Dr Andrew Molodynski, mental health lead at the British Medical Association, said the prolonged systems failure has damaged care because records are “integral to patients’ safety”. Mental health patients’ recor
