    Paramedics in London have started wearing body cameras after a 34% jump in the number of violent attacks on ambulance crews. A trial of the technology is being rolled out across the capital in areas where workers are thought to be more at risk based on past incidents. Paramedics can press a button to start recording if patients or the public become aggressive or abusive towards them. London Ambulance Service told The Independent there had been an increase in physical assaults in recent years. Attacks jumped from 468 in the financial year 2018-19 to 625 in the year 2019-20, a 34%

    NHSX has launched a ‘simpler and faster’ technology assessment process to help healthcare providers pick digital tools that meet NHS standards. The new digital technology assessment criteria provides NHS and social care teams with guidance to decide which tools to use or to recommend to patients. NHS organisations, national bodies and social care will be encouraged to apply the DTAC when considering any form of digital health technology procurement. NHSX described DTAC as “a new simpler and faster assessment process to help give staff, patients and the public confidence that the digi

    2020 saw a huge leap in the delivery of virtual health and care, with encouraging lessons for the current crisis and beyond. But has the speed of innovation been at the expense of inclusive people and patient-centred care? In this free online event from the King's Fund, explore what we can learn from the innovations that have accelerated during the pandemic and how we can align patient and user involvement in the development of future virtual health and care solutions.

    Digitising the management of wound care provides accurate and accessible data to nurses and clinicians while also enabling remote assessment of wounds. The COVID-19 pandemic is front and centre of all current healthcare priorities – and rightly so. Yet, we must not, nor should not, overlook the need for other forms of healthcare provision – which have by no means abated. Take the management of wound care. It is estimated that 2.2 million people in the UK live with non-healing, chronic wounds – those wounds which do not respond to treatment and therefore do not heal. They can last for mont

    Tthe report recommends the government should: Ensure digital policy reflects patient priorities. Involve patients in the policymaking process. Educate people about the value of digital health technology. Make digital health technology accessible to all. Ensure that regulations for the collection, sharing and use of patient data are clear and consistently applied. The report also includes recommendations for the NHS. They include: Examine the public experience of digital health technology during the pandemic. Ensure patients have a choice. Giv

    In a new trial, cancer patients across the UK have been using the eRAPID technology system to help them manage their cancer symptoms. The system has been developed by the University of Leeds, and this is the first trial to offer automated advice to early-stage patients whose treatment aims to cure cancer. Hundreds of early-stage colorectal, breast, or gynaecological cancer patients took part in the trial which used computer algorithms to help manage their symptoms and improve their wellbeing. They were able to report online symptoms from home and receive instant advice on whether to self-

    In this study, Kim et al. analysed 1,189 patient safety event reports using a safety science and resilience engineering approach, which focuses on identifying processes to discover errors before they reach the patient so these processes can be expanded. They analysed the general care processes in which wrong-patient errors occurred, the clinical process step during which the error occurred and was discovered, and whether the error reached the patient. For those errors that reached the patient, they analysed the impact on the patient, and for those that did not reach the patient, we analysed ho

    Good mental health services are now recognised as vital to the NHS and to the health of the nation. With that in mind, the NHS Long Term Plan proposes to significantly increase mental health investment and envisages data and technology as central to transforming services. Stepping forward to 2020/21 sets out the need for continued development of the mental health workforce. We need mental health services that offer the best available care, provided by staff who can work effectively in a culture of continuous improvement. What will result when this policy alignment meets technological progress?

    A major survey of NHS IT chiefs has revealed that despite more positive attitudes and uptake towards technology as a result of COVID-19, the long-term challenges of digital transformation within hospital trusts remain unchanged and only 14% of respondents believe they have sufficient funding to cover business priorities. The Digital Health Intelligence NHS IT Leadership Survey, carried out annually by Digital Health Intelligence, offers a 'state of the nation' insight into the priorities, concerns and challenges faced by NHS chief clinical information officers (CCIO’s), Chief Information

    The issue of safety is – rightly – never far from the headlines, and that includes in the midst of a pandemic. Despite scandals over quality of care in recent years, it is clear that embedding a strong culture of safety throughout the health service is a constant and continuing mission Matthew Shaw – who is Great Ormond Street's former medical director as well as its current chief executive – joined the debate exploring whether digital technology can help embed a strong patient safety culture. Joining Mr Shaw on the panel were Adam Thomas, chief information officer at The Dudley Gr

    Chief executive Joe Rafferty and strategic advisor for digital programmes Jim Hughes, will discuss how Mersey Care Foundation Trust has been part of a region-wide programme to develop shared understanding of covid and other pressures. Joining them on the panel will be Rebecca Malby, professor in health systems innovation at London South Bank University, and Markus Bolton, director of Graphnet Health – which is supporting the event. In a discussion chaired by HSJ contributor Claire Read, they will explore the value of a shared understanding of which pressures and caseloads exist in an

    Implementation challenges The investigation highlighted the main implementation challenges. This includes: National consistency in drug libraries – smart infusion pumps have an inbuilt dose error reduction system (DERS) which requires the use of a drug library. The investigation found that drug libraries were developed ‘locally’ and that there is no agreed national drug library for use in NHS. They also found that there is no national guidelines or standards on how to implement the libraries. Significant changes in processes – introducing the technology requires significant cha

    Key aims Reassure patients they have not been forgotten during the coronavirus pandemic. Establish the patient's wishes regarding treatment. Good communication with patient and GP. Produce a validated waiting list that allows operating lists to run effectively. All Trusts are required to complete a clinical validation of patients on an admitted patient care pathway by 23 October, and for it to be captured in NHS e-Review. Trusts will be required to identify four user groups for the system; a user to upload patients to the system, an administrator, a super user t
