TORONTO, Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VitalHub Corp. (the “Company” or “VitalHub”) (TSXV: VHI) is pleased to announce the deployment of newly-acquired Intouch with Health’s digital patient flow solution at newly-built Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Liverpool (“CCC-L” or “Clatterbridge”).
The new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre – Liverpool (CCC-L) is a major new hospital that will transform cancer care in one of the worst-affected areas of the UK, and is part of The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust. Clatterbridge has deployed VitalHub’s newly acquired Intouch with Health’s digital patient flow solution, to help improve the patient experience and drive efficiency across its cancer clinics.
Clatterbridge, an 11-storey hospital, is part of a £162m investment in transforming cancer services across Cheshire and Merseyside. The hospital has deployed Intouch with Health’s central outpatient flow management platform to allow staff and clinicians to track the location and status of patients for the duration of their appointment, as well as room and resource management to control clinic allocation and room occupancy across its three sites. The Trust has also introduced self-service kiosks to allow patients to register their arrival without attending reception and digital patient calling screens to transfer patients from waiting areas to clinic rooms when appropriate.
“A quick check-in process with no queues and clear instructions on where to wait, followed by discreet, clear instructions when the clinician is ready to see the patient make a huge difference to their overall experience. Many patients have already commented on how easy and straight forward the process is,” said Jeni Bradshaw, Digital Programme Manager at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust. “Intouch with Health’s technology is helping us operate much more efficient clinics. Staff are notified of a patient’s arrival on the live dashboard and can see which clinic they are attending and which waiting room they have been directed to.”
She continued: “Staff are given visibility into the status of a given patient, including whether they’ve arrived, where they’re located, and whether they’ve been called for their appointment. This is all supplemented by the digital management of clinic allocation and room utilisation across our three sites using the central dashboard. Clinical staff can review room availability and arrange job plans accordingly with access to a clear view of clinics across the whole Trust, which has previously been difficult to visualise.”
“As new healthcare facilities continue to be developed, there is a considerable opportunity to implement automated patient visibility and operational management solutions that streamline efficiencies and improve access to care,” said Dan Matlow, CEO of VitalHub Corp. “Having been selected in a competitive scenario by CCC-L - a prestigious, world-leading cancer centre - demonstrates the depth of our product platform, and evidences the market need to deploy these solutions across premier healthcare sites.”
