    The EPR – necessary but not sufficient - Dedalus
    Over the past few years, many secondary care trusts have been focussed on the implementation of EPRs within their organisations. As we look forward to operating as connected health and care systems through ICSs, it is clear that the current model of EPRs will not be capable of delivering the capabilities necessary for systemwide transformation. At Dedalus, we believe that a new approach is required – one utilises a platform-based approach utilising open data standards and open APIs to unlock the data in our organisations, connect our systems and extend functionality beyond the walls of individual institutions. This is a more Intelligent and faster way of delivering transformative digital capabilities, starting from where you are and leveraging investments that have already been made.

  • 'The AI Doctor Will Call You Now': The Digital Future of Primary Care Keynotes

    -


    The past 18-months have seen a dramatic acceleration to digital first primary care, with radical shifts to remote care by phone, video and automated platforms Added to this are new plans to collect GP data on an unprecedented scale under GPDPR. The digital future of primary care keynotes from the two most recent chairs of the RCGP will examine where next for digital future of primary care in the NHS.

    From zero to 1 million digital consults per month
    Dame Clare Gerada - Medical Practitioner and Co-Chair, NHS Assembly

    On a cold winters morning, ten years ago, just before the start of yet another hectic week I said to my partners, ‘wouldn’t it be great if we knew what was wrong with the patient before they walked in the door?’. For decades we have known that around 75% of patients seen by the GP could be seen by someone else – but to determine which 75% meant the GP had to see them all.

    At the time there was massive investment in digital technology, mainly around wearables and data, all aiming to improve the monitoring of patients in the community and ensuring that we could identify problems before they got worse. All well and good. But little was being aimed at primary care; of reducing activity through better self-care or of directing patients away from the GP to other forms of care, such as the pharmacist or nurse.

    Now more than 1.2 million are being done per month and the numbers are increasing each month. Digital consultations allows us to safely triage the patient to the right place, right time and with the right degree of urgency. This talk will give a personal perspective of this journey, the highlights and problems.

    14:05 - 14:15
    The future of digital first primary care

    The EPR – necessary but not sufficient - Dedalus
    Over the past few years, many secondary care trusts have been focussed on the implementation of EPRs within their organisations. As we look forward to operating as connected health and care systems through ICSs, it is clear that the current model of EPRs will not be capable of delivering the capabilities necessary for systemwide transformation. At Dedalus, we believe that a new approach is required – one utilises a platform-based approach utilising open data standards and open APIs to unlock the data in our organisations, connect our systems and extend functionality beyond the walls of individual institutions. This is a more Intelligent and faster way of delivering transformative digital capabilities, starting from where you are and leveraging investments that have already been made.

    From zero to 1 million digital consults per month
    Dame Clare Gerada - Medical Practitioner and Co-Chair, NHS Assembly

    On a cold winters morning, ten years ago, just before the start of yet another hectic week I said to my partners, ‘wouldn’t it be great if we knew what was wrong with the patient before they walked in the door?’. For decades we have known that around 75% of patients seen by the GP could be seen by someone else – but to determine which 75% meant the GP had to see them all.

    At the time there was massive investment in digital technology, mainly around wearables and data, all aiming to improve the monitoring of patients in the community and ensuring that we could identify problems before they got worse. All well and good. But little was being aimed at primary care; of reducing activity through better self-care or of directing patients away from the GP to other forms of care, such as the pharmacist or nurse.

    Now more than 1.2 million are being done per month and the numbers are increasing each month. Digital consultations allows us to safely triage the patient to the right place, right time and with the right degree of urgency. This talk will give a personal perspective of this journey, the highlights and problems.
