NaviHospital to Home is an innovative patient safety system enabling more people to have safer, happier and healthier lives, confidently supported at home by a unique Medication Administration and risk reduction system. Currently patients are kept waiting in hospitals and occupy beds as Local Authorizes has not been able to make arrangements for accepting patients in the community. Transition period of patient between hospital and the community provided by hospital will make the bed/room immediately available. The patients will be more comfortable with the continuity of service by hospital during the transition period.
The System will not only help NHS to meet bed shortage and waiting list, but also CQC requirements and patient satisfaction. It also enable hospital based clinicians to control and monitor patient at home. The carers can get connected to a closed group of selected people to share the current physical condition of the patient through video conferencing facility introduced in the system. This unique feature helps reduces mistakes at the point of care and triggers alerts for any adverse drug reaction (ADR) symptoms or vital signs by prompting text messages. This leads to early action, thus reducing the impact of harm and saving money and lives.
It has been recognized that unnecessary time in hospital can be very harmful especially to frail older patients, exposing them to other risks, such as hospital acquired infections, and often leading to extended stays away from home. Currently patients are kept waiting in hospital and occupy bed as LA has not been able to make arrangements for accepting patients in the community. Transition period of patient between hospital and the community provided by hospital will make the bed/ room becoming available immediately.
Hospital to Home - As per National Audit Office (NAO) and Department of Health directives, 26 MAY 2016:
It is estimated 4 million older people in the UK (36% of people aged 65-74 and 47% of those aged 75+) have a limiting longstanding illness. This equates to 40% of all people aged 65+.
Our unique solution helps reduces mistakes at the point of care and triggers alerts for any Adverse Drug Reaction (ADR) symptoms or health data by prompting text messages. This leads to early action, thus reducing the impact of harm and saving money and lives. This avoids any litigations and charge of corporate manslaughter.
After discharge, continuity of care isespecially important for older patients as they are more likely tobe in hospital for longer; if they are frail, a stayin hospital can be life-changing; and, regrettably, in some hospitals and somewards, older patients are exposed to unacceptable standards of care.Patients and carers may experience problems with care planning, communicationand most importantly co-ordination by LA.
It is also relevant for Hospice to Home as well.
The Communication portal - promotes direct communication between Hospital, Social Services, GP and if required patient/relative. The dash board will have the messaging facility between hospitals, GP, local authorities, service providers etc. It also has alerts for any new message.
Just the dash board and the doc lib from NaviCare at home. No input of data here.
Its document library will store:
We believe good communication between various entities helps re-admission to hospital within 30 days, to be cut down by 50%. It will enable focusing more on care with fewer resources.
