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.

New Cancer Care Review tool

Posted on 22-Jan-2019 10:20:28

Dr Tom Hodges-Hoyland, Vision Medical Advisor, notes why the latest additions of Vision’s suite of cancer tools are important for primary care practices to understand and know about.

We need all the help we can to get to identify cancer early. Cancer Research UK estimates 52,000 patients a year have their odds of survival cut because the disease is not caught quickly enough. More recently, Public Health England looked at the records of 4,637 patients diagnosed with cancer in A&E and found that 71% had seen their GP a least once with symptoms that turned out to be cancer. And 41% of that 71% had seen a doctor three times with symptoms. All the evidence is we have to do better for our patients.

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?

Posted on 16-Oct-2018 11:56:07
