Kingston Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has partnered with OX.DH, a health tech start-up linked to the University of Oxford, to introduce its Assisted Reproduction (OX.ar) solution and healthcare platform.
Cloud-native technology specialists OX.DH are to introduce OX.ar at Kingston Hospital in order to support patient-centric individualised care. The tech provides patients and clinicians with a “secure, intuitive experience designed to optimise the fertility pathway through digitised workflows”. It is built on “secure by design and secure by default” Microsoft Azure with open APIs, and as such is set to improve cyber security and reduce operational risks for the trust.
With reproductive healthcare involving multiple participants and clinicians in a pathway, and therefore requiring more people to be involved in consultations, treatment and consent, it is hoped that OX.ar will “drive integration, transform pathways, and simplify access to services for patients.”
Through the digitised workflows, patients will have greater control over their own health, with the ability to fill out documentation online, manage their own appointments and access their results through a patient portal.
The company focuses on developing 100 percent cloud-native technology, seeking to enable organisations to make the most of integration whilst empowering patients. Their platform “provides workflow orchestration with seamless connections to the existing healthcare ecosystem. ”
OX.DH founder and CEO John Kosobucki commented: “We are delighted to welcome Kingston Hospital NHS FT into our innovative community, and to play our role in enhancing the entire fertility pathway. The programme, along with our solutions, will accelerate digital transformation to support the best experience for patients and clinicians.”
OX.DH chief operating officer Emma Stratful added: “We’re really proud to help people on their journey, and also to support healthcare teams in delivering their services through easy-to-use simple technology that makes a difference; the result being engaged and informed patients, with superior clinical outcomes.”
