Why Vision is attending The King’s Fund Population Health Systems conference

Posted on 05-Apr-2019 15:00:00

Vision gets asked to sponsor lots of events, but we’re picky. It is important to us that we move the primary healthcare agenda on and provide practical support and help the NHS to improve. That’s why we’ve decided to exhibit at the Towards Population Health Systems: What Next? at the King’s Fund on April 30th.

The move toward population health management is reinforced by commitments set out in the NHS long-term plan, but how should health systems respond?

From small data pools great Data Lakes will spring!

Posted on 27-Feb-2019 12:25:13

Data lakes are being sold as the solution to delivering population health programmes but if you are a GP the best starting place might be your own data pool.

Every GP practice in the country is sitting on a pool of data that they have inputted, understand and trust. For a GP that might be a better starting point on their population health journey than a  data lake. For professionals who are understandably cautious, a practice’s own data has the advantage of being populated with real-time information, from known contributors, with the ability to verify accuracy and completeness immediately.

What can replace Map of Medicine?

Posted on 30-Jan-2019 13:19:48

When Owen Epstein and Mike Stein created Map of Medicine at the Royal Free Hospital in 2000, it represented a revolution in clinical pathway creation and dissemination. But now it is no more; general practices and hospitals around the UK are searching for a replacement.

When it was announced in July 2018 that Map of Medicine was withdrawing from the market and discontinuing support for more than 420 digital clinical decision pathways, GPs and hospital consultants went looking to find a new solution.

Ever since Map of Medicine was integrated into the National Programme for IT the tool has helped GPs and hospital doctors reduce poor referrals, inappropriate tests and flawed patient journeys.

Clinical Leaders to Discuss NHS Long Term Plan

Posted on 22-Jan-2019 12:38:22

It will be the future, not the past. Vision will be exhibiting at the National NHS Clinical Leaders Network Congress tomorrow. 

With the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan in the first week of the New Year, the focus of the Congress has pivoted away from reflecting on the Five Year Forward View to concentrate on the new master plan.

Large GP practices (30,000 to 40,000 patients) will receive funding to work together to deal with the pressures of primary care by looking at hub working and creating genuinely integrated teams.

Artificial Intelligence for Patient Record Searching

Posted on 15-Jan-2019 16:17:34

As a doctor or nurse have you ever scrolled through a patient’s records desperately trying to recall the last time they came in with a cough, complained of feeling tired or fell at home?

You know the record is there somewhere or maybe there is just a voice in the back of your head saying: “There’s something more to this.” Maybe you just gave up looking, risked frustrating the patient instead and asked them to recount their history again, just because it was quicker. 

Wouldn’t life be a lot easier if the patient record did the checking for you? Wouldn’t it be great if, as soon as you typed “cough” or “fall” or “migraine”, the electronic health record presented all the previous records for respiratory, neurological or orthopaedic consultations?

Design Accessibility: The importance of a simple User Experience

Posted on 02-Jan-2019 11:30:36

Web content, software and online systems should be created for everyone to be able to use. There’s little point going to all the effort of launching a brand new product or website if vast swathes of people are unable to use it. The people behind these sites and programs have a responsibility to make the things accessible. Which is why design accessibility is so important.

Acknowledging Achievement & the General Practice Awards

Posted on 28-Nov-2018 17:11:39

The last decade has seen a sharp rise in the pressures placed on general practice. This includes an increased volume of work, as well as a broadening range and complexity of conditions and patients.

This makes it more important than ever to come together to show appreciation for, and solidarity with, those performing well under difficult conditions. How fitting that it should also be the tenth anniversary of the General Practice Awards.
