Why is integrated care so important?
Joined-up care is the biggest goal within the NHS at present, and the driving force behind the ongoing digitisation and greater cooperation between health and care services.
Our ethos is that by working together we can ‘level up’ health and care. We can raise the minimum level of service and quality to ensure better standards, and from such solid foundations can truly great care be delivered.
Integrated care offers:
· Care improvements
· Cost effectiveness
· Greater working efficiency
· Greater understanding of people and conditions
· Better staff development
Integrated care means better communication, cooperation, and collaboration. Agencies, Trusts, providers, and even specific departments or teams will be better equipped and able to share information and data, all to the benefit of the patient.
By working together, healthcare professionals can ensure that nobody falls through the gaps between hospital and community. The individual’s care management is a seamless, continual process that is ever evolving and continually recording even the smallest details to ensure that doctors, nurses and carers are always acting with the best information possible and can anticipate health issues before they become problems.
The patient experience is paramount. Joined-up care allows for greater prioritisation of patients to ensure quick, effective treatment. By optimising the care pathways we can save clinical time and speed up the patient journey. By freeing up healthcare professionals from repetitive, time consuming work we can ensure they are better rested, better focused, and less stressed. Their wellbeing is just as important as a patient or client’s, and by helping those caring with software solutions and better working practices we can drive better care outcomes.
At Access, we're the only supplier that can partner with you to join up your care across primary and secondary healthcare, social care and the care sector – and we’re now even working on virtual wards and the ‘Hospital at Home’.
Our breadth of solutions provide visibility for your staff so they have the information they need to provide safe, quality care.
