Workflow Intelligence

Reducing the cost of Claims; Improving business processing.

Service processes like claims management are often slow because there is far too much “work in progress”. When processes are not efficiently managed, tasks can spend more than 90% of time waiting at different stages, substantially raising the cost of items such as insurance claims.

Food Hygiene

Food and workplace safety are key concerns for the environmental health profession.

In the UK alone it is estimated that there are a million cases of food poisoning every year and almost 30 million working days lost due to work related ill health or injury; placing a significant burden on the economy. Monitoring and enforcement of food, health, licensing and safety requirements is therefore taken very seriously.

How can Healthcare make better use of information?

Looking this past week at the Nuffield Trust Health Policy Summit. The Guardian Healthcare Network reports on the second day of the summit focuses on managing change, use of information and the delayed Care.Data programme being run by NHS England. There's plenty of commentary about this programme and the risks to privacy - some of it more or less hysterical (not meaning amusing). Here's a good example from the Independent which used to be a good newspaper.  Personally, I would like the clinician to know that I am allergic to valium for example if I turn up at A&E semi-conscious. That's pretty hit and miss right now, even if you have previously attended that hospital, so it seems to me this programme is vital for a modernised NHS.

One thing that struck me from the Nuffield Summit report was quoting Ben Page, chief executive at Ipsos MORI, giving pointers for maintaining support when difficult decisions, e.g. reconfigurations, are made. Summarising to the key point: Get the narrative right about gains before the losses. What are the benefits going to be?

How is Integrating NHS & Care Services Working?

Great article in Guardian Healthcare Professionals Network by Bob Hudson from Durham University this week - The six challenges of joint working. Unsurprisingly, he describes 6 key  challanges including Moving from an economic to a quality focus - i.e. measuring outcomes rather than activity, and Moving from an organisational to a user-centred perspective - that is what's the outcome for me rather than where I am in someone's process map (aka Care Pathway). I recommend reading the article.

Courage! Hope!!

Fantastic to see Helene Donnelly - the nurse who became a key whistleblower in the Mid-Staffs inquiry - recognised in the New Year honours list. Her courage, and that of Julie Bailey also honoured, is an example to all of us. How many of us can honestly say we never looked away? I'm guessing that it may be some time before the most famous whistleblower of the year - Edward Snowden - is included in the honours list. Nevertheless, for really raising the issue of ubiquitous surveillance by government agencies in the US and here in the UK his courage deserves recognition. Perhaps Angela Merkel might be his first option?
