Supporting the Digital Transformation of Health and Social Care

By Darren Body • 09 April 2020

Transform NHS insight
Better data management can go a long way towards solving many of the problems faced in the health and care sector. A recent health report by Ernst & Young, New Horizons 2019showed that only 42% of consumers and 21% of physicians surveyed in England felt that health care providers were making significant strides to introducing digital systems.Considering that digital systems like shared care records help to make the patient experience more accessible and efficient, healthcare providers should be doing more to close this gap between their organisations and their patients.Some steps are already being taken towards advancing the user experience of UK healthcare, including government-mandated shared care records. With this system in place, patients are also then afforded more access to, and control of, their information, making it easier to self-manage their conditions. However, not all NHS Trusts have been quick to roll out these systems. Using a business service provider can speed up the process by helping with the planning and implementation of shared care records within an NHS Trust.We’re happy to report that Cantium Business Solutions is working with the NHS in Kent and Medway to deliver a shared care record for patients; the Kent & Medway Care Record (KMCR). This signals a significant digital transformation for healthcare in the area, providing a single view of patients’ electronic records and frictionless access to viewing their data. The benefits of this will include better coordination of care, improved clinical decision-making, more efficient hospital discharge and transfers and ultimately, more successful outcomes for patients.

Over the past 18 months, we have been defining the specifications for the KMCR solution, with input from clinical care professionals from numerous providers throughout Kent. Combining this with our knowledge and experience in the NHS, we’ve completed the first two of three phases of the project. We are now awaiting the start of the final stage, which will see the KMCR through to its implementation. You can read our KMCR Case Study, which outlines the journey so far.

Finally, if you’d like to have an informal chat about Cantium’s experience in delivering Digital Transformation, please get in touch.
