"We are launching a telemarketing campaign on the 6th June across the West Midlands offering a FREE of Charge Paperlight Clinic to any NHS Trust in the West Midlands" = An interesting offer - I wonder what take up might be and what barriers Trusts may face to implement such a system - no mention of ongoing costs but I presume that will be mentioned in the detailed information submission - is the free offer something WMAHSN would actively promote to Trusts? I've rated and will wait for another moderator to rate then publish, thanks, Jo

By Tammy Holmes on 17/05/2017
Suggested more relevant to the self care campaign. 

Hi Simon 
Thank you for the clarification, i will go back to the campaign manager and let her know. 
With regards to your second submission i wondered whether you had seen our recently active campaign around Self Care.  This is a campaign that is being led by one of our Sub-regional Membership Innovation Councils that are held in the north, centre and south of the West Midlands region.  These groups are made up of stakeholders from across the healthcare sector including NHS trusts, public health, academic institutions, STP leads etc. More information can be found at:     
It looks like this campaign would be relevant to this submission.  If you would like to include this under this campaign and piece of work i have copied in Jo Mewis from our industry gateway who would be more than happy to help you move it across.

VSM/Lean approaches have a place with the 'toolkit' of methods that can be adopted for quality improvement in a healthcare setting. The programme seems logical and structured and focussed on developing skills which are applied against a 'real world' challenge and improvment is measured which is good.

I think scaling of this approach depends very much on the organisational readiness/improvement culture of an organisation (i.e. it may seem relatively simple to scale but its not quite that straightforward).

The power of lean/VSM approaches I think does depend on the nature of the challenge an organisation is trying to address. Going back to the 'toolkit' of improvment approaches if an orgnanisation was developing a wider improvment strategy I wouldn't see this approach as the only set of tools required (for instance in safety terms there are techniques based around human factors/ergonmics, safety 2 and resilience). This isn't necessarily a comment on the submission itself (which is well articulated) but there has been a tendency for NHS organisations to pick a single methodology and beleive wholesale deployment of that approach solves all challenges. I'm not sure that's the case. So whilst this submission has its own merits I think it is difficult to untangle in terms of scalability and spread from organisational readiness, culture of improvement and exisiting philosophy for continuous improvment. 
By Tammy Holmes on 09/05/2017
Detailed review comments: This is more of a leadership in innovation model rather than focussing on 'proof of concept'.  I think this might be a better suited approach to the innovation and adoption fellowship programme and they have also submitted to that campaign for review for this.

There is a clear gap which this submission identifies around skills, knowledge and ability to deliver improvement activity and innovation, this is well articulated by the submission.

QI based training for staff is a well worn route and I'm not sure from the submission what this course offers that is different from other approaches which have been tried (sometimes at scale). The gap between training and implemnetation in QI approaches is well recognised (I can comment less on the innovations aspect) and I'm not sure if this (at least from the current) description is an innovative approach to providing education.

One of the key aspects of delivering QI is the 'on the job' experience of delivering QI projects in the messy reality of a complex social system that is health. Whilst this submission does identify that peer support, refletive learning, networking etc are key to move from awareness to using skills I'm not sure it fully articulates why this programme would be different from others in translation into action on the ground.

I wonder whether there is room for more innovation in terms of delivering this kind of capability building? The programme may be different from other in this regard but it is difficult to understand this from the submission.

As per our previous communication i have pushed this out to our networks for comment/information. 

At this time the feedback we have received is as follows: 

A good submission - Workplace resilience is proving to be a hot tpoic, and it's becoming clear that most NHS Trusts now commission or provide training in this area.  One of the big challenges is to quantify the return on investment, whether in human or economic terms.

I have two main questions about the Altruist Enterprise offer:
  • This submission provides some really good information about the qualitative impact and mentions a 25% saving on sickness absence costs, but we believe commissioners will need some more solid outcome and cost/benefit data to be confident of a return on investment. Is there any available? 
  • A lot of Trusts are already commissioning this locally. What is the USP for this particular innovation.  What sets this apart from the training that's already being provided or commissioned by Trusts that makes it truly innovative?
I hope this feedback helps, if there is any further question please do not hesitate to contact me.

Neil - is there anyway we can open this comment up so the innovator can see your comment rather than it only being for us? i think the feedback would be grately appreciated by the innovator and useful for them going forward.

Just noted its cloud based but no mention of location / N3 etc. so concerns over access controls (who, what, where and why) and thus info governance issues.  
By Chris Dyke on 13/02/2017
Hi James - I'm not sure as I understood that the system they had was in use and operational but developent had stopped due to funding - When I contacted BCH them about a possible merger of the BWH & BCH handover systems they advised that they were not doing anything at present due to the merger. This system and the BCH is seperate to the imbisoft 'virtual clinc' as it is intended for internal hospital handovers especially between day and night and weekend staff. But as Jo points out there are possible linkages and similarities with ensureing people have the most important and relevant information and can quickluy assimuylate what is happening and what is required.
6PM are developing a ward management system and were intertested in possibly taking on the handover systems especially as there was two (efficiency and scale), plus what they are doing at George Elliot. So if the Handover at BCH and BWH is now live again I think it would be good to get all parties together. Possibly with Imobisoft as well to see and ensure consistancy, continuity of sytems and data and possible commercial collaboration between all parties allowing for a much stronger product with routes to market via the developers as well as a set of regional NHS testing and evaluation and home grown trust champions.

As Jo said I think Neil and Lucy should have a look from a IT and commercial / local econmomy angle.    
By Joanne Mewis on 13/02/2017
Imobisoft worked with a consultant at BCH to develop 'virtual clinic' a system that enables clinicians / patients & carers to communicate and it allows for the remote monitoring of the patients condition and automatically updates the EPR - rather than reinvent the wheel we could, as James suggests, maybe link to up with others.  No mention of IG compliance - I'll rate but maybe Neil could cast his eye over this before publishing, thanks, Jo
By James Turner on 01/02/2017
Chris, is this the handover project that you mentioned, from BCH?

I have been working with BWH on on a handover system which is already well developed and used within BWH and has attracted a lot of media attention. It would be good if I could look to link the two together and see if they could be of benefit to each other?

I really like this and the principle behind it. Who is using this in the West Midlands at the moment as I can think of Prime GP in South Warwickshire who run a social group to prevent isolation and something like this would sit nicely alongside it?

Hi Lucy. Currently no organisation in the West Midlands is using Rally Round. We'd be very happy to talk to Prime GP if you can make an introduction?

Hi Steve - I was wondering how this compares with the Medicines Use Review (MUR) and New Medicines Service (NMS) that people can access through their Community Pharmacies? Thanks Lucy 
By Steve Turner on 27/01/2017
Hi Lucy,

Good question. When we do the group sessions we signpost people to MURs. NMS and all other relevant resources.
Then, when we offer the individual sessions, the people who come forward tend to be those for whom existing services havn't hit the spot. We also work closely with the local Mediciens Management Teams to ensure we are offeing soemthing that really adds value and  doesn't reinvent the wheel. We're still learning on this ...

Best wishes,
