Innovation 'Elevator Pitch':
Digital Transfer bag for essential clinical patient information such as medical, falls and frailty information, diet/nutrition/hydration etc. To improve patient safety and provide important information to HCP's for patients conveyed.
Overview of Innovation:
Creation of a Digital Transfer bag for essential clinical patient information such as medical information, falls and frailty information, diet/nutrition/hydration etc. To improve patient safety and provide important information to Health Care Professionals for patients conveyed to Emergency Departments, hospital appointments or occupational therapy services. The app can also incorporate additional elements that will help to tailor their care such as an electronic falls risk assessment (eFRAT), simple initial questionnaires i.e. recent coughs and colds, general health, mental health, stability checks. Integration of Point of Care testing such as UTI testing for symptomatic patients. Results can be emailed to GP/ night nursing services for treatment prescription if required. Quick identification and treatment can improve patient experience and reduce falls risk associated with UTIs.

Hello - our digital lead was wondering what existing platform you had in mind as the information governance and data security around this looks prohibitively expensive. Thanks Lucy 
Hello Lucy,
We have access to a care home platform that can be adapted and are currently working on a project that links these systems through the N3 network into healthcare systems.  As such it wouldn't require the build of a completely new platform.  I'm happy to arrange a call with my colleagues, yourself and your digital lead to discuss further if you would like more detail?
