Making services flexible to meet patient needs
Poyette Chambers, Radiographer at Hereford County Hospital believes the new facilities will enable the team to not only be more efficient but also improve patient care. "These new rooms will give us scope to adapt our practice, become more creative, work more concisely and more efficiently. The new room has already given us more flexibility when we’re working with patients who are not very mobile – for example they can stay seated in their wheelchair and we can fit the system around them," said Poyette.
As part of the Managed Service partnership, a comprehensive service and operational improvement programme will be rolled out, designed to deliver optimised workflow and an enhanced working environment. With the use of advanced data analytics, Philips will help the Trust invest in the right technology at the right time, while also addressing process bottlenecks to deliver a first-class future proof healthcare service to their community.
“As we plan for the next phase of transformations, we’re defining a long-term future that delivers optimum patient and staff experiences and helps realise new levels of clinical excellence and co-ordination across care-sites,” comments Stephanie Holden, Managed Services Director at Philips UKI. “We will be excited to share more as our work with the Trust brings these plans to fruition.”
