Achieving better care at lower cost is the ‘sweet spot’ for managers trying to deliver their QIPP programmes.

But doing this requires the active involvement of clinicians and an appreciation of some of the challenges they face in their working lives.

With the ever growing volume of medical research and guidance it can be hard for even the most senior doctors to stay on top of their specialism and take every possible factor into account. And for juniors it can be more than a little daunting − especially when senior staff are thin on the ground, such as at night.

Offering them support in providing appropriate and safe care is a priority for many trusts − and software designed to help them in deciding on diagnosis and best treatment is one way to do it.

There is a growing body of evidence that this can reduce unnecessary tests, speed up diagnosis and treatment, and can avoid harm to patients.

This free HSJ webinar will look at the impact clinical decision support software can have in hospitals, featuring real world examples and cases

It will cover:

  • How decision support software can support trusts in delivering some of their QIPP goals through better and more timely care
  • The evidence case for using clinical decision support software in clinical practice and how it can contribute to reducing unnecessary diagnostic tests, help clinicians deliver the right care, first time, and lead to reduced lengths of stay
  • The role it can play in helping doctors - especially juniors - ‘on the ground’
  • How doctors in the North West have seen positive outcomes from using support software
  • How to build a business case for investment in clinical support software

Our panel will include:

  • Clinicians from the UK talking about their experience of using software to support and improve clinical practice
  • John Addison, library manager at Pennine Acute Hospitals Trust
  • Denise Basow, editor-in-chief of UpToDate, one of the leading software systems
  • The webinar will be chaired by HSJ editor Alastair McLellan

Who should watch?

  • Clinical and medical directors
  • Chief executives
  • Finance directors
  • Managers with responsibility for QIPP programmes
  • Healthcare IT managers
