This application offers the following benefits:
- Increased clinical governance and patient safety as this replaces the current spreadsheet/manual system of monitoring patients on the programme.
- Improved productivity and efficiency of team members as this replaces manual systems and results in cost savings.
- Increased organisational assurance, confidence and ability to understand the exact status of the programme at all times.
- A single version of the truth as the application can be accessed on any device.
- Security of patient-level data based on clearly defined user-permissions.
- Easier audit and internal control and management of programme/patients.
- Automatic production of emails and letters to patients and the ability to have these passed back into PAS systems via interfaces could be developed later.
- The system can be designed to integrate with hospital PAS systems for the transfer of patient demographics and possible interface with pathology, radiology and other systems (vitals).
- Easy to implement, the application is web-based, so there are no requirements to load software onto machines.
