Care Pathway Manager is being used in a leading maternity unit to give staff central visibility of processes and avoid unnecessary delays.
From the point the mother is first admitted to the ward, to when they are successfully discharged with their baby, Care Pathway Manager allocates each patient to a digital pathway, designed to assist both mother and care team. The pathway prompts care team members to conduct activity sequences and provides a real-time view of patient progress. Tasks may have timers attached to ensure SLAs are met, and the system can automatically alert staff before they expire, or even reallocate tasks where appropriate.
Dashboards can display the current stage the patient has reached within the care pathway, together with any outstanding actions. They can also be colour-coded to highlight overdue actions, or to signify key events e.g. when a patient has been cleared for discharge.
After they have left the hospital, Care Pathway Manager can send an automated programme of resources and questionnaires to monitor how mothers are coping, as well as capturing their feedback about service quality.
Prostate Cancer pathway [read more=”Read more” less=”Read less”]
Our ‘templated’ straight to test Prostate Cancer pathway allows GPs to book an MRI scan, biopsy and consultation upfront, rather than sequentially. The result is that patients have shorter waiting times, greater visibility of their personal pathway, and can plan their diaries accordingly.
Appointments include; an MRI scan, a 20-minute consultation with a urologist, and a one hour template biopsy with nurse and urologist. Intelligent scheduling rules ensure the right consultants and resources are linked to each appointment type and that appointment slots are booked back-to-back. The platform then progresses patients through various dashboards, creating relevant tasks for each team member.
You can configure the platform to send automated resources that help patients prepare for appointments and add custom rulesets to help you automatically check the suitability of incoming referrals.
