For our

Outpatients is failing

  • According to the the NHS Long Term Plan, the number of hospital outpatient appointments has almost doubled from 54million to 94million in the last 10 years, costing £8billion

  • 25% of doctors say 10-20% of patients need not have come to clinic while 28% of doctors say 10-20% of patients need not have been seen in person

  • In 2016-17, almost 8 million outpatient appointments were missed due to patients not attending , costing nearly £1billion

  • The Long Term Plan therefore calls for outpatient services to be fundamentally redesigned and digital solutions can reduce the need for up to half of outpatient appointments

Outpatients redesigned

  • Digital pathways across multiple departments

  • Cardiology, Cardiothoracics, Endocrinology, Oncology, Respiratory, General Surgery​

  • We have shown we can:

  • Reduce missed appointments from 12% to 3% for patients with atrial fibrillation - a 75% reduction in DNAs

  • See 10 additional patients in a 4 hour clinic slot - a 30% increase in capacity

  • Improve the rate of prescriptions of time-critical medications for heart attack survivors from 11% to over 80% - improved health outcomes

  • Satisfaction, time and cost savings for patients
