Patient Symptom Reporting
Communication & Document Distribution
We started development of our remote outpatient care framework in 2013, working closely with NHS Highland and Crohn’s and Colitis UK to produce a comprehensive clinical dashboard closely aligned with the condition and an app to collect patient data.
Since then we’ve carefully grown the system working closely with clinical and technology partners. We now integrate with core systems and have features like document management, specialist patient registry and two way messaging. We are currently working with IBD, Cancer, Palliative Care and Diabetes. And we still ensure that we deliver tangible benefits and sustainability.
ROC: Digital Solutions for Transforming Outpatient Services
openbrolly Heath’s award winning team has partnered with clinicians, charities and the NHS to develop Remote Outpatient Care (ROC). This is a proven solution for supporting patients with chronic conditions at home as well as their carers, community support and provides MDT meetings with up-to-date, accurate information.
The product offers a patient facing app with delivers accredited and vetted information and collects symptoms and holistic needs from patients. It also offers optional two-way online, tracked communication.
For clinicians there is a comprehensive dashboard with rule-based alerts, patient information graphs and tables and treatment summary completion. The system can also provide reports and statistics for management and quality indicators.
ROC can integrate with core systems, including Docman, SCI Store and TrakCare.
ROC is already in use supporting IBD, cancer and palliative patients and has been built to support other conditions, multi-morbidity and use across organisations.
We also support paper based systems and manual input, recognising that not all patients will move immediately to a digital pathway.
As well as solution development, we also offer a range of consulting services for digital health developments, including technical feasibility, commercialisation review and planning and project management.
Crohn’s & Colitis Self Reporting
With financial support from Crohn’s and Colitis UK and working with NHS Highland, we have created a patient self reporting mobile app and clinician dashboard for Crohn’s and Colitis patients. This enable remote support, diagnosis and new care pathways to be created. They service is hosted within the NHS infrastructure and on openbrolly Cloud servers.
The system is now being rolled out to other NHS areas and has been trialled in Ireland.
Palliative Care at Home
Working with Highland Hospice, we are trialling a remote support portal for palliative care offering personalised advice, videos and one-to-one teleconferencing for patients who are receiving care at home.
This service includes physiotherapy advice and is being rolled out to other clinical teams.
Transforming Care after Cancer Treatment
Funded by the Macmillan Transforming Care after Treatment programme, we are developing a portal for cancer patients to access personalised advice and securely receive up-to-the-minute information about their condition. Working with a number of partners, the portal also provides signposting for both clinicial and non clinical information – such as financial advice and support for improving fitness and wellbeing.
