Mental Health Crisis Care
How can digital tools support people at risk of mental health crisis? 
These may involve:
- using data to predict when a crisis is likely to occur
- alerting service users, carers and professionals when risks of crisis are elevated
- providing tools to service users to maintain their mental wellbeing
- innovations that signpost users and professionals to the most appropriate services
- new ways for users to interact with care professionals.

Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Our Game Based Learning platform, aligned to the ‘Future in mind’ report could support the WM Mental Health community - parents, carers, teachers, clinical staff, in comms, intervention & prevention, especially for early intervention of young people.
Overview of Innovation:
Our Game Based Learning platform has a unique difference over 'other' digital / serious games providers. Our platform provides the ability to easily change, update and amend game experiences, so that any investment in an experience is extended to address an organisations ever changing requirements. Our platform allows a Game Based Learning experience to be developed in under 10 days and can be changed / updated in minutes. The platform is available 'locally' or in the Cloud and can be deployed on Tablets, PCs or via the Internet. We have already successfully worked with and developed a number of games within the Healthcare Industry - namely around the subject of 'Stop the Pressure' - Pressure Ulcer training for Tissue Viability professionals.

We believe that our Game Based Learning platform could be deployed to assist the Mental Health community to drive communication, early intervention and help with prevention of Mental Health - especially within the area of young people, as a Game Based Learning experience is un-intrusive, engaging and enjoyable, thus suiting the demographics for the younger generation.

Game Based Learning, provides an engaging conduit to deliver knowledge in an enjoyable format, games generally result in players relaxing and engaging in the defined subject. This creates a learning platform that is open to all levels of intelligence and education, providing an level playing field for the overall audience.
Stage of Development:
Market ready and adopted - Fully proven, commercially deployable, market ready and already adopted in some areas (in a different region or sector)
WMAHSN priorities and themes addressed: 
Mental Health: recovery, crisis and prevention / Long term conditions: a whole system, person-centred approach / Wellness and prevention of illness / Education, training and future workforce / Wealth creation / Clinical trials and evidence / Digital health / Innovation and adoption / Person centred care
Benefit to NHS:
The 'Future in Mind' report commissioned by the NHS, clearly discusses the benefits of early intervention relating to mental health, especially for the younger population. To achieve early intervention successfully, the whole 'mental health' community must be involved - peers, parents, teachers, friends, professionals etc. Applio believes that a proof of concepts - Game Based Learning experience, would greatly assist in breaking down the barriers in the 'openness' and 'discussions' relating to this difficult subject. Games have the ability to really engage an audience, provide an enjoyable way to discuss a subject, break down perceived barriers and drive engagement within the younger community - they are after all, already playing digital games!
Initial Review Rating
3.40 (2 ratings)
Benefit to WM population:
Delivering a proof of concepts Games Based learning platform as a trial within the West Midlands Mental Health arena, would provide the West Midlands with the required analytics required to measure the impact of what we are proposing. Should the analytics prove to be beneficial, then the West Midlands would benefit in relation to the whole Mental Health community being able to successfully communicate, provide early intervention and improve prevention in the younger generation of the West Midlands. This could then be showcased to the greater community of the NHS.
We believe that the proof of concepts would only require approximately 20 to 25 days of time from Applio, obviously we would require input from experienced practitioners, which we estimate to be between 3 and 6 days. 
Current and planned activity: 
We have already provided Game Based Learning experiences to the NHS in partnership with WMAHSN, we created two experiences relating to 'Stop The Pressure' - Pressure Ulcer training for Tissue Viability professionals. One experience was 'story' based - about a patient called Angela Smith. The other a competitive team vs. team experience that contained numerous questions and scenarios addressing the very technical issues of Pressure Ulcers. The games were played at team meetings and the feedback was excellent:

‘What a great way to learn, really enjoyable and engaging’
‘So much better and engaging that listening to a PowerPoint presentation’  

Applio would recommend as next steps that we arrange in partnership with the NHS a 2hr workshop with a relevant Mental Health professional to hold initial discussions that would provide Applio with enough information to develop a 'demo' game experience, this would prove the technology and provide the foundation to drive this initiative forward.
What is the intellectual property status of your innovation?:
Currently Applio is in discussions with an IP specialist firm, which is looking into the applicability of IP for our Games Based Learning platform.

Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
A workforce management solution (including scheduling, rostering, mileage optimisation and BI tools) which enable the NHS to achieve greater quality & efficiency, whilst improving patient wellbeing and outcomes.
Overview of Innovation:
NHS Community Teams are dealing with increasing numbers of early discharges from hospitals, complex care packages, patients with co-morbidities & mental Heath challenges. Organisations are also trying to make a concerted effort to reduce hospital admissions in order to ease the pressures within the acute sector, while continuing to provide the best clinical outcomes for patients. CM2000 works with the NHS to develop innovative workflows & processes needed to ensure that existing Community based teams are working to optimal efficiency. Safety is key but there is also a need to ensure that teams have a strong cohort of experienced staff with the capacity and experience available to meet the ever increasing demand, this is where CallConfirmLive! comes into its own

CM2000 delivers innovative IT solutions to help enable the NHS to achieve greater quality & efficiency, whilst improving patient wellbeing & clinical outcomes. CM2000 has a proven track record of working with NHS organisations and over 900 Private Providers of health & care services in the community, and over 75 Local Authorities, ensuring that care is delivered cost effectively, efficiently & safely

CallConfirmLive! is an electronic rota management solution, schedule optimisation tool, mileage wizard & mobile working solution (facilitating lone working too!) for teams working on the frontline and for Trust wide visibility, we use our Business Intelligence solution (CMBI) which provides a strategic view for effective performance management & capacity planning across one, or all of the services you manage allowing for a more unified service

CallConfirmLive! can not only help to improve efficiency and reduce overall costs but can also support with the prevention of Mental Health Crisis events - Health Care Professionals & team Managers benefit from real time updates via the observations feature & assessment platform. This allows all staff to; report on a Patient’s changing condition, raise alerts back at base for further input, plus ensuring if a patient receives multiple visits per day, all staff have the most up to date information

The CallConfirmLive! solution, used in conjunction with the online carers/patient portal allows for information regarding patients visits/progress to be monitored by family members/advocates/patients themselves

The solution ensures a proactive approach when a patient is at an elevated risk of crisis and inform those closely involved with the patients care
Stage of Development:
Market ready and adopted - Fully proven, commercially deployable, market ready and already adopted in some areas (in a different region or sector)
WMAHSN priorities and themes addressed: 
Mental Health: recovery, crisis and prevention / Long term conditions: a whole system, person-centred approach / Wellness and prevention of illness / Education, training and future workforce / Wealth creation / Digital health / Innovation and adoption / Person centred care
Benefit to NHS:
Main benefits from CallConfirm Live!
  • Efficiently manage your workforce – our scheduling and optimisation tools automatically organise the most efficient and Patient-focused rotas, helping you to identify untapped capacity within your teams
     
  • Reduce back-office processing – automate time-consuming processes like planning rotas, processing timesheets / mileage claims
     
  • Streamline communication – use our Mobile Workforce Solution to send rota changes in real-time. This dramatically reduces the calls between the office and community staff
     
  • Reduce costs – modules such as Mileage Wizard can significantly reduce mileage claims and a reduction in printing, processing, postage and telephone calls will all save money too, one NHS trust has reported an efficiency saving of 17.5% as a result of using CallConfirmLive!
     
  • Ensure quality service – punctuality and length of stay information is useful for quality audits
     
  • Record and share outcomes / observations – CM2000’s Wellbeing Outcomes Platform enables you to deliver more Patient-centred care using wellbeing intelligence gathered at the point of care delivery, also allows for reporting of potential incidents to reduce mental health crisis which can be visible by family members/advocates as well as patient if you so wish.
     
  • Protect Lone Workers – use our alerts to meet health and safety obligations and give reassurance that workers are safe, especially late at night or visiting patients with challenging behaviour
     
  • Our CMBI Business Intelligence Solution facilitates a dashboard style analysis for use at senior levels within the organisation It provides an overarching view of how your service(s) are operating.  It means that you can make informed decisions regarding the services you offer, with the most up to date information available, pulled together from varying sources.

Benefit to WM population:
Patients, their Carers and their families can closely monitor and inform each other of any changes to the Patient’s condition.  It means that the delivery of care can be more appropriately focused to the needs of the Patient. The welfare and safeguarding of Patients and Staff are of utmost importance to CM2000, and where NHS organisations are using our CallConfirmLive! solution, Healthcare Teams are more efficiently informed of potential incidents, and are able to react appropriately.

This use of this technology enables the NHS to deliver the right care, to the right person at the right time. It eradicates unnecessary mileage, can dynamically assist with the planning of the most efficient schedules and ensures that the Patient has their care delivered by the most appropriate person, meaning good continuity of care.
 
Where the solution identifies gaps in staff schedules, their time (which is already being paid for) can be re-deployed to work within other teams or into hospital wards where there are staff shortages.  This will inevitably reduce NHS spend on agency staff cover.
 
One of our customers has reported:
  • A reduction in office administration – scheduling a whole area reduced from 2 days to 2 hours.
  • Phone calls were down by 50% - this meant that they were dealing with 600 less calls per month equating to 14 hours per office team.
  • 17% reduction in staff mileage.
  • 24% reduction in travel time.
  • 5.5% - 10% gain in capacity (as measured by delivered duration against planned duration). 
A regional and wider scale adoption of our technology would allow Care Management 2000 based in the West Midlands to grow and take on additional staff to train and support users of this technology as well as bring forward our development plans for new features and facilities which we would hope to develop with West Midlands users – we currently operated from our Sutton Coldfield based offices with 100 staff.
Current and planned activity: 
We have systems operational within the following NHS Trusts:
  • Northumbria Healthcare NHS FT
  • NHS Dumfries and Galloway
  • Oxford University Hospitals NHS Trust:
We provide a combination of electronic visit monitoring, scheduling, and mobile solutions using RFID technology within these Trusts.  We operate within end of life care, short term reablement services, rapid response teams and other multi-disciplinary teams within the community.

Planned / required activity
  • Raise awareness of CM2000 within the NHS within the West Midlands region
  • Procurement/adoption of the CallConfirmLive! Software to initially support Community Trusts with efficiency and cost saving
  • Work with Mental Health & Community Trusts to improve Mental Health Crisis Care through the CallConfirmLive! and Wellbeing Portal software
NB: ROI is a dificult question depending on complextity of the solution. We are working on ROI with NHS trusts at present but epect the results to be highly favourable.
What is the intellectual property status of your innovation?:
Our AURA Landline model is patented technology and all other IP is the property of CM 2000 Ltd.
  • Accredited to ISO9001 (Quality), ISO27001 (Information Security), ISO 22301 (Business Continuity) and PSN (Public Service Network) compliant.
  • CM2000 are very aware of the importance of data capture / quality techniques within the NHS.
