    A website that tells patients how long they are likely to wait for NHS treatment will be made available in Scotland this summer. Humza Yousaf, the Scottish health secretary, said people queuing for tests and procedures and their doctors would be able to access information about any delays in their area using the software. Many patients living in pain are waiting years to have common operations such as hip and knee replacements. In theory, the SNP guarantee hospital treatment within 12 weeks of patients joining the waiting list, but this law was broken extensively before the pandemic

    Key findings: 1 in 5 patients says their wearable device is hard to use. The majority of patients who are manually inputting data (87%) have recorded inaccurate data on their wearable devices. Of these, 85% said the error occurred because the user interface was hard to understand.

    The 10 key lessons: Dedicate sufficient time and resource to engage with end users. Co-design or co-production with end users is an essential tool when implementing technology. Identify the need and its wider impact on the system, not a need for a technology. Explore the motivators and barriers that might influence user uptake of an innovation. Ignore information governance requirements at your peril. Don’t be afraid to tailor the innovation along the journey. Ensure adequate training is built in for services using the technology.

    This article discusses eight human factors and ergonomics principles for healthcare AI, drawn from a white paper published by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors: Situation awareness - Design options need to consider how AI can support, rather than erode, people’s situation awareness. Workload - The impact of AI on workload needs to be assessed because AI can both reduce as well as increase workload in certain situations. Automation bias - Strategies need to be considered to guard against people relying uncritically on the AI, for example, the use of exp

    Key messages: Now is the time to reform general practice in England. Reform is not a distraction from tackling the biggest issues confronting the profession. A mixed economy should prevail, but with greater incentives for workforce, data and procurement to become coordinated through ‘layers of scale’ in cooperation with the NHS. Independent provision will continue to have a central role in primary care. The primary care pathway should be redesigned to improve access by creating a more coherent ‘first contact’. Ensure continuity of care is built into any ne

    A Scottish hospital has become the first in the UK and one of the first in the world to pilot using artificial intelligence (AI) in its cervical cancer screening programme. University Hospital Monklands has increased capacity by around 25% and improved analysis turn-around times with the measure, which experts said could “revolutionise” the screening process. The system, from medical technology company Hologic, creates digital images of cervical smear slides from samples that have tested positive for Human Papilloma Virus (HPV). These are then reviewed using an advanced algorith

    There are more than 7,000 rare diseases, affecting an estimated 3.5 million people in the UK. Their complex nature means it is difficult for healthcare professionals to receive training on every condition or for patients to access the relevant specialist. People living with rare diseases, such as muscular dystrophies or Huntington’s disease, can go through multiple appointments and referrals before a diagnosis is made due to the complexity of conditions, making it difficult for individuals and their families to coordinate their care. The action plan, published today, includes 16 comm

    Electronic patient record (EPR) systems must be implemented in at least 90% of NHS trusts by the end of next year, the health secretary has announced at HSJ’s Digital Transformation Summit. Speaking at the event with digital healthcare leaders in Birmingham, Mr Javid said an estimated one in five trusts are currently without EPR systems implemented. He said: “We have seen some brilliant progress {on digital transformation] but it’s not always been consistent across the board.” He said: “We must see these disparities as just as unjust as disparities in access to education and employme

    The NHS plans to treat up to 25,000 hospital patients at home in “virtual wards” to help clear the backlog caused by the pandemic, the “living with Covid” plan has revealed. Patients will be offered acute clinical care at home, including remote monitoring and treatment, as an alternative to hospital stays. Consultants or GPs will review patients daily via digital platforms and phone calls. In some cases, patients will be provided with a wearable device to continuously monitor and report their vital signs. The NHS has set a national target of 40 to 50 virtual beds per 100,000 pop
