Welcome to our dedicated channel focusing on patient flow, where we share insights and ideas from health technology experts, through a range of features, interviews and articles.
Responsibility for patient flow is no longer just a nursing task – it is everyone’s responsibility. Katy Cain, clinical consultant for smart health technology provider Alcidion, explores changes in the way patient flow is being managed to respond to NHS pressures, maximise capacity and improve patient outcomes. As a senior nurse, she examines how technology plays an important role in helping to ensure professionals across multi-disciplinary teams, hospitals and integrated care systems can move patients forward in their care.
HTN spoke with Michael Shenouda, Director at Open Medical, to get his thoughts on the importance of capturing granular data during patient flows, examples of their solution in practice, and the learnings and challenges Open Medical can take forward.
