NHS Scotland is defined to redesign its urgent care providers and enhance sharing of clinical information utilizing Advanced software.
The rollout of Advanced’s clinical treatment applications, Adastra, forms a part of the Scottish government’s programme to help hospitals deal with A&E admissions throughout the pandemic.
People who call NHS 24 111 and need therapy at A&E can now reserve a consultation and have their healthcare information moved into Adastra for hospital clinicians to get.
Those who do not need an A&E trip will have the ability to reserve a call or make an appointment with a different service for example out-of-hours GP or mental health evaluation.
Ric Thompson, managing director health and care in Advanced, stated:”With emergency departments overstretched, the Scottish government’s scheme couldn’t come at a more critical time.
“We are already beginning to see a fall in A&E presence, which implies that some individuals who’d normally visit A&E are opting to have attention elsewhere.
“The implementation of Adastra has been pivotal in the management of urgent care during Covid-19, helping NHS Scotland signpost citizens to the right care at the right time.”
Adastra supplies constant information stream between clinicians and health care services by ensuring that medical records could be seen immediately when required.
Clinicians may capture the attention they are supplying and send additional details to the individual’s GP utilizing the machine. It connects to Advanced’s file management alternative Docman, which can be used by most of GP practices in Scotland, to provide complete care.
Adastra has been used in Scotland for 17 decades to handle out-of-hours and unscheduled care.
“Our clinical patient management tool is the result of years of development and input from healthcare and IT professionals. We are confident it will benefit Scotland’s urgent care services both now and in the years to come,” Thompson added.
