Webinar: A Consultant’s Perspective: Adopting a National Approach to Clinical Utilisation Review in the NHS to Improve Patient Flow
November 21, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
This webinar will provide an overview of the Clinical Utilisation Review programme that has been incentivised nationally and adopted by hospitals in the UK. The session will cover the approach taken and highlight programme outcomes and successes.
Through a formal NHS framework that supports the adoption of clinical decision-support software as an integral part of hospital transformation and service improvement programs the following challenges are being addressed:
- Understanding where and how we need to invest to reduce inappropriate hospitalisation
- Reducing the numbers of non-qualified acute inpatient hospital bed-days and inappropriate length of stays
- Understanding and reducing avoidable internal discharge delays
- Identifying opportunities for improving patient outcomes, experience and satisfaction
- “A single version of the truth”. Identifying and understanding the reasons patients are not in the most appropriate setting for their clinical needs and how these can these be resolved
This webinar will provide the perspective of Integral Health Solutions (I.H.S), the UK’s specialists in making the connection between Clinical Utilisation Review and service transformation across health and social care footprints. I.H.S has been contracted, since 2014/15 to lead the implementation of the national CUR programme and adoption of CUR software and associated process changes across NHS Hospitals in England.
The MCAP solution is one of two approved software suppliers on the NHS England CUR National Framework. MCAP is a software application that applies proprietary evidence-based clinical criteria and powerful analytics to provide real-time clinical decision support data that quantifies the medical necessity of treatment at a given level of care. The MCAP solution includes support for pre-screening admissions, determining when a patient should be discharged or moved to an alternate level of care.
