Meet all the HTN winners here
South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLAM), have pioneered a new point-of-care test (POCT) which measures blood levels of anti-psychotics from a single drop of blood, with the support of ReStart’s digital integration services and support.
Why? The ambition of this work was to realise the benefits of immediate access to results, with the new process capable of saving time and resources.
What happened? The new POCT provides instantaneous results, utilising interoperability across data collection points, patient records and Cogstack AI for processing of results. Having instantaneous results at the POCT meant that patients were better informed about their care and demonstrated better adherence and increased engagement in their treatment, resulting in fewer lapses and associated re-hospitalisations. To aid this work, SLAM has created a visualisation display for the outputs of the POCT results, which gives clinicians direct access to results and the ability to calculate trends across defined period. Clinicians can see the patient’s clozapine level in real-time and make dose adjustments accordingly. This involves collating the POCT results with historical data and feeding it through an algorithm in the Cogstack AI. Mitigating factors such as gender, weight and other medications are taken into account to derive each individual’s optimum medication level.
Congratulations to all the winners and those highly commended across the various award categories.
