Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Detection of acute, chronic and very early stage diseases in real time based on tests results and alerting all authorized parties about detected problems with of the essential patient information on mobiles, tablets and computers.
Overview of Innovation:
As it could be integrated and is constantly receiving data from current lab and EHR systems, it immediately detects problems in lab test results and informs doctors about new lab data received and issues detected for a particular patient. It gives access to historical data with some valuable statistical calculated and visualised data which helps doctors to understand acute, chronic, hidden or early stage health problems over secure web/mobile/tablet applications, so doctors can see these results for making better and correct decisions any time and in any location they are in at any moment.

Core applications of the solution are:
1. Speeding up doctors’ workflow in hospitals. At the moment, doctors in NHS have to go to rooms where there are computers with access to lab data. Quite often, doctors spend time waiting for each other to get access to their patient blood test data.

An essential part of the solution is the mobile/tablet application which can be installed on any mobile operation system iOS/Android. Which lead to:
  • Freeing up to 2 hours of doctors’ time daily
  • Increasing patient turnaround time on average by 25%
  • Increasing time reaction on most critical acute cases up to 99%
2. In Doctors’ practice, there have been cases when a delay in days, hours or minutes in getting lab data in time is crucial for a patient’s life.

Platform is constantly tracking blood data from the lab system, it analyzes it and alerts about critical changes in lab tests metrics and it immediately sends notifications to related parties to pay attention on a particular case.

At the moment, it tracks more than 25+ diseases and all other blood test parameters and (early and acute): AKI + CKD (all types), Sepsis and much more.

3. Platform provides historical analysis tools for blood results and gives some related insight information for each particular test parameter, so it is quick and easy to see the problem and identify potential problems at a very early stage and apply preventive actions to avoid problems.

4. Platform has a recommendation system which seeks potential hidden problems in results. If those potential hidden problems are found, the platform gives an explanation and list of additional tests required to confirm potential problems.

5. For management team it provides deep business insight (visulised with over the time progression) of a difference scale: Hospital, Groups of Hospitals and National level about detected problems, about performance of laboratories, doctors and etc.
Stage of Development:
Close to market - Prototype near completion and final form may require additional validation/evaluation and all CE marking and regulatory requirements are in place

In Acute Trust pathology tests are ordered in the Electronic Patient Record (EPR), serviced in the pathology system and then the results returned to the EPR. Normally results would be displayed in the EPR alongside other clinical information.

Alerting and analysis of test results may have benefit but Trusts would need to understand how this demonstrated additional benefits over and above that provided by the EPR (or pathology department for interpretation). Demonstrating acknowledgement of results is a clinical requirement that could be of interest. Alerting may be appropriate in certain circumstances but consideration would need to be given for how clinical processes were changed to make the most of this. 

The pitch would benefit from more detail on how this works in clinical practice. 
We provide a holistic view of the patient profile — any hospital can request a full patient profile to see previous patient history (from other hospitals/clinics/GP/private laboratories), which can help to avoid non necessary testing, medication and use of hospitals beds. This holistic patient profile might be accessible directly to patient as well.

Also we are working on gathering data right from patient smartphones and other gadgets which patient might connect to it (watches, connected medical devices) . This information then sends to our platform into patient profile if any anomaly detected. So medical team and/or GP can analyse it to get understanding of patient concerns and/or to adjust treatment.
Our platform connects hospital EHR/ EPR and/ or LIS (lab information) systems. As soon as labs release results into LIS our platform reads, aggregates and analyzes the data. If any concerns are detected — it generates an alert (report with all detected/ potential issues, recommendations for enhanced tests etc). Our paltform sends this alert to authorized parties over smartphone/ tablets apps (iOS/android) and over our own web based app to related parties. This means the correct doctor receives an alert on his/ her own smartphone, so he/ she can react immediatelly according to the situation wherever he/ she is. It's not necessary to have access to EPR at a desktop computer, or to check it constantly during the work day (it takes the medical team a good portion of work time daily) — as all this information with patient health records (from EPR and images) can be accessible over our smartphone/ tablet apps right in front of patients.

Also, our platform is based on micro service architecture. So interoperability is at the core of the platform. It means that the same alert can be added to the EPR system (optionally), it can be send to messenger apps (Slack and others) or it can be sent to any other authorized by NHS/ Trust/ Hospital systems (optionally).

Also our platform (smartphone/ tablets/ web apps) have features which allows doctors to order lab tests right from our apps, or enhanced lab tests can be requested from samples which still storing in the lab (in most cases labs storing samples 2-7 days after the first test). When a doctor places a lab test request over our platform, the same request will be placed/ added in EPR, LIS and any other autorized by NHS/ Trust/ Hospital systems (optionally).

The hospital will have its own copy of all transactions with the patient in its own EPR system always.
