NHS Scotland

“Transforming the role of Point of Care testing (POCT) across NHS Scotland, using data to establish current variation and effectiveness and enabling NHS Scotland to uniformly use this technology in a way that alters patient pathways in a Diagnostic Led NHS using Realistic Medicine”

Across NHS Scotland the use of POCT is unknown and to a large extent unregulated. POCT is used at the “point of care” to give practitioners key laboratory results at the patients side to aid key clinical decision making. Often POCT is applied as a specific project or piece of work to solve a particular problem, often however the quality of that remains unregulated and the effectiveness of the purchase is unlikely to be measured.

The challenge is to provide NHS Scotland with a database/visual aid of what is currently used. This tool would also show areas of good and bad practice allowing NHS Scotland to influence clinical decision making on the application of POCT. It would include the obvious “What is out there”, it would include “Why is it done” and ultimately it would include “What effect has this had on the patient pathway” (keeping the patient at home or in a homely setting longer).

We are working closely with international experts, Industry Leaders and academics to ensure this endeavour addresses market need. Scotland will provide two main global functions in meeting the growing need for diagnostic test innovation

- An accredited Data Atlas for POCT

- A needs based Test Bed for accelerated development of devices, tests and data enabled personalised support services for diagnostics

North of Scotland Health and Care Transformation

We are working with DOH, England and Welsh and NI Governments to establish market availability against need. We are an active part of the NICE Initiative-Medtechscan which creates a UK and international observatory and landscaping function. We are also part of the USA Led Institute of Health Management and intend to work with incentive to test global markets.

We are seeking to develop a means of delivering health and care services that reflect the advances in technology that are in common use in all other aspects of modern life. The solution will allow patients and clinicians to communicate securely and timeously. Clinicians will have access to all the information they require to make a clinical decision including information directly from the patients. Patients will have easy access to appropriate advice and to clinical care at the time that it is required. Essentially, a multi-way internet based information flow between patient, GP, diagnostic service, secondary care clinicians and other appropriate agencies. This flow will incorporate the following:

- a mechanism for patients to provide information to allow clinicians to respond or take action timeously

- digital process aimed at reducing the use of routine return appointments – likely to incorporate a digital process to monitor/test symptoms

- paperless communication of appointments and other information with patient

- access to tailored digital self management guides and symptom checkers

The solution needs to be easy for patients to access and use and compatible with existing clinical and administrative patient management systems such that all the information gathered and exchanged is incorporated to the electronic clinical record.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

Global Nursing Challenge-Transforming Nursing Care Processes for the 21st Century, a Multi professional and Patient digital time of care record.

The challenge is to capture and create a real time health record for patients that is available at the point of need, accessed by the multidisciplinary team in both primary and secondary care and is contributed to and accessed by the patient in the setting of their choice. The solution needs to be secure, robust and simple to use taking account of the needs of clinicians and patients. A successful solution will allow all members of the clinical team access to important data about their patient. The gathering of data from a patient will become part of an important interaction between the care giver and the patient rather than a question answer form filling tick box exercise. Paper files and pages of documentation will be things of the past.

There is already considerable enthusiasm for such a development reflected in the actions of the Chief Nursing Office in Scotland commissioning a landscaping event which helped clarify the innovation challenge and there are established links with the UK Knowledge Transfer Network and Welsh Government.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

Creating and driving a clinically and cost effective pathway to improve recovery after critical illness enabled by data from hospital information systems. Our challenge is to design a patient management system for patients admitted to hospital with severe life-threatening illnesses that can integrate with existing NHS IT systems. The challenge includes developing a ‘track and trigger’ system that automatically initiates clinical reviews and assessments. More novel, the system aims to ‘pull’ data from existing NHS systems, process it, and present it as quality outcome metrics to track important clinical outcomes in real time to feed back to clinical teams. The main quality metric proposed in this challenge is unplanned readmission to hospital after going home. The combination of ‘structure, process, and outcomes’ will offer a system that can drive quality improvement interventions and measure their impact in real time. This will allow the rapid evaluation of the impact of service improvements and/or new treatments on clinically and economically important patient outcomes. The initial focus will be patients discharged from the intensive care unit after severe life- threatening illness. This group has many complex health and social problems following their illness, and require improved care and support with more coordinated approaches than currently offered during their recovery in hospital and after discharge home. At present they experience poor long term health and are often readmitted to hospital as an emergency within a few months of going home.

II.2.4) Description of the procurement

Can we develop an IT system which can prompt health and social care workers, and their patients or clients to adhere to agreed management plans and enable real time monitoring to deliver the right care, at the right time, every time to patients with stroke in the first instance, but then apply this learning widely in the NHS in Scotland.

We are wanting to identify or develop an IT system which would prompt health and social care staff, and their patient/clients, to carry out important, and often time sensitive activities at the right time, every time. It would provide a real time picture of how successfully the organisation was delivering care to allow resources to be most effectively deployed. The system would need to be capable of working alongside existing IT systems including electronic health records (e.g.TRAKcare) since its focus is not data capture, storage or presentation.

Automation of Pre-Cleaning Processes and Reduction of Chemical Use During Pre-Cleaning of Reusable Surgical Instruments Leading to Reductions in Water Pollution, Improved Safety for Employees and Reductions in Cost to the NHS / Healthcare providers

NHS Highland is increasingly concerned about the pre-cleaning process for reusable surgical instruments, and seeks a solution that can reduce the risks of contamination of aquatic environments by hospital waste waters from this process. Any solution will also need to achieve a reduction in risks of staff health and safety concerns, a reduction in resource intensive PPE, a reduction in costs of pre-cleaning to the NHS, an increase in the quality of output to achieve higher levels of decontamination in surgical instruments to reduce risks to patients, and also have the potential to be sold to markets internationally.

Technology Enabled Glasgow

At present that are approximately 160,000 vulnerable people in Scotland who receive support and assistance through Telecare, with services ranging from in-house alarms to motion detector sensors. The Telecare service in Glasgow has been designed to help users safe in their home and enable you to summon assistance in an emergency.

Currently in Glasgow existing telecare services utilise the existing analogue network when contacting for assistance. However recently it has been confirmed the analogue network will be deactivated and replaced by a digital means.

To support the switch from analogue to digital, Glasgow is seeking to develop consumer-oriented technologies that are digitally compatible and enable easy access to support according to user preference. The ideal solution will be one that allows some of our most vulnerable users to live independently within their own home with reduced reliance on publicly funded interventions.
