    Patients have come to avoidable harm after a large private provider failed to deliver thousands of medicine prescriptions, according to a report from the Care Quality Commission. Healthcare at Home, which is based in Staffordshire but provides NHS-funded care and medicine supplies to patients’ homes across the country, has been rated “inadequate” and placed in special measures. A report published today said inspectors found more than 10,000 patients missed a dose of their medicine between October and December 2020 due to problems caused by the introduction of a new information system

    1. Regulating adaptive AI algorithms Where an AI tool quickly adapts to reflect its environment and the context in which it operates, the AI may “reinforce those harmful biases such as discriminating based on one’s ethnicity and/or gender”. These will further exacerbate existing health inequalities and place certain patients at a disadvantage. It is important that the ground rules for these AI tools include firm parameters that seek to prioritise patient safety. A bit like Asimov’s Zeroth Law, ”a robot may not harm humanity, or, by inaction, allow humanity to come to harm”. 2. Hackin

    A rugby player has developed a wearable device to monitor head trauma after a teammate was forced to stop playing the sport due to injury. Euan Bowen, 28, played the game at university and in his final year in 2018, when a teammate suffered three concussion injuries in one season. It spurred Mr Bowen to develop an idea for a device to track brain health into the HIT Impact technology, which detects g-force and records impact on an app. After spending time at Heriot-Watt University’s Edinburgh Business School (EBS) Incubator, his product is expected to move into production within

    The system for introducing new medical technologies into the NHS remains complex, crowded, and difficult to manage, according to a new report by the Medical Technology Group (MTG). The paper also calls for innovative treatments with medical devices to be given the same support as new pharmaceutical medicines. Current NHS mechanisms to support the uptake and use of innovative technology are severely limited in scope and are focused on ‘picking winners’ rather than the broad system-wide adoption of new technology, the report states. It points to the Accelerated Access Pathway, for

    People will be able to check if they have bowel cancer by swallowing a tiny capsule containing miniature cameras, in an extension of patient self-care. In what experts described as a trend towards more NHS at-home care, hastened by the COVID-19 pandemic, thousands of people in England will be able to avoid the discomfort of having a camera inserted into their bowel by instead swallowing a capsule the size of a cod liver oil tablet. Pictures transmitted from inside their body during the painless procedure will help doctors judge whether the person has bowel cancer, the second deadlies

    A regulator has admitted “concerns” over the software Babylon Healthcare uses in one of its digital health solutions and is exploring how to address this. The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Authority’s (MHRA) concerns relate to Babylon’s symptom checker “chatbot” tool. This is used by thousands of patients, including those registered with digital primary care practice GP at Hand. Two senior figures within the agency set out the MHRA’s concerns about the tool in a letter, seen by HSJ, which was sent to consultant oncologist David Watkins following a meeting between the p

    The Prime Minister recently announced a funding package worth £3.7 billion to build 40 hospitals by 2030 in the biggest hospital building programme in a generation. The Health Infrastructure Plan will also provide capital to modernise diagnostics and technology and help eradicate critical safety issues in the NHS. The scale of the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic has caused big shifts in the way hospitals deliver services. The NHS has had to mobilise to respond to the acute needs of people infected with the virus whilst at the same time scaling back non-COVID-19 healthcare. Servic

    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

    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

The aim of the report is to offer policy recommendations to help ensure the UK capitalises on the potential of digital health to the benefit of patients, the NHS and the UK, after the crisis subsides.

    Within a few months of joining Great Ormond Street Hospital Foundation Trust as medical director, Mat Shaw became its chief executive. Heading up the organisation clearly brought with it new responsibilities and challenges, yet he says on one important issue there was little difference between the two roles – namely, the focus on patient safety and enabling clinicians to offer the best possible care for patients. “I lived through the time when all notes were on paper, when you had five, six volumes of thousands of pages. I lived through that time when it was very difficult to actually kno

    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?
