Background In 2010 West Suffolk Hospital NHS Trust was challenged by the BMA on behalf of a number of junior doctors regarding the working practice of their rota. These representations were based on evidence provided through monitoring exercises, undertaken during the doctors' placement at the hospital. The BMA claimed that the exercises in question showed the rota to be non-compliant with both the New Deal and European Working Time Directive due to the following: - a failure by the Trust to ensure that the doctors received their natural breaks on at least 75% of their duties; - the Trust target for natural breaks should have been 100% rather than 75%. The doctors claimed that the working pattern on the rota was non-compliant for the relevant period and that this had been accepted by the Trust, and therefore that band 3 payments should be made. If successful, this would have resulted in the Trust making over £750,000 of additional salary payments for past, present and future doctors of this rota.

One of the first requisites for this cancer treatment database is accurately classifying the tumour. While the vast majority of pediatric brain tumours can be categorized as gliomas, ependymomas and medulloblastomas, altogether there are 12 or so tumour types including subtypes. Classification is very subjective because pediatric brain tumours are often difficult to distinguish by appearance, and there are few objective markers such as those found for other childhood cancers such as leukemia.

As with all clinical and scientific experiments, the variables measured must be robust and reliable. The main goal for North Warwickshire NHS Trust was to calculate whether each of the 18 items in its psychometric scales - used to determine improvement or deterioration - had acceptable inter-rater reliability (ie, whether the scoring between different raters or assessors was consistent throughout).

Patients using HomePods to measure vital signs and communicate with carers have better outcomes and fewer hospital visits, our research suggests. A pilot project saw a 90% reduction in length of stay and hospital admissions, a 40% drop in home visits from the GP and A&E visits reduced by half. This paper illustrates how in-home monitoring can save a PCT or GP consortium over £180,000 a year just by improving the care of a small section of COPD patients.

Occupational Health Kiosks Could Reduce Absence Costs By £340,000 a Year: Employees use a self-service kiosk to test for potentially absence-causing health issues in a 15-20 minute occupational health check, without assistance from occupational health services. Using information from the CIPD on employee absence in the UK, and reports from current users, we believe we can reduce the overall cost of absence by 14% a year.

A fundamental issue facing healthcare worldwide is tying fragmented information and data silos together to increase intelligence. This truth is self-evident to healthcare leaders worldwide. The costs of providing healthcare are increasing at an unsustainable rate. Healthcare systems everywhere are under enormous pressure to improve care quality while operating with reduced budgets. The increased competition in healthcare requires health information exchange solutions that include master indexes at the core to provide an improved understanding of patients, physicians, business partners and the relationships between them.

A master person index1 (MPI) that links information about an individual across disparate source systems to create a single, accurate, real-time virtual patient record is widely accepted as a requirement for successful eHealth initiatives. IBM's industry-leading MPI, IBM® Initiate® Patient®, accurately identifies and links same patient records across disparate systems. IBM® Initiate® Provider®, also an MPI, relies on the same core technology to support a single accurate view of providers. Together these solutions can create a connected view of the patient and their care team to help coordinate care and facilitate population health.

Introduction and overview eHealth offers a potent means for health services in EMEA, and worldwide, to tackle the daunting challenges of the 21st century. Ageing populations, long-term management of chronic illnesses, escalating costs1, changing patterns of disease, and a worldwide shortage of healthcare workers are all driving the need for health information and communication technology (ICT) to improve healthcare administration and delivery. For future sustainability, the healthcare system demands efficient and affordable access to finite healthcare resources, improving care for all and reducing healthcare inequalities. To achieve its potential, eHealth must facilitate the secure movement of patient data out of system silos and transform it into intelligence for improved patient administration and enablement of patient-centred, coordinated care.

It is universally agreed that innovation must be the driving force behind the reconfiguration and evolution of the NHS. Innovation and innovative thinking, however, take many forms, and it is important that the pursuit of innovation does not focus solely on that which is new and high tech. In fact, it is often simple and accessible solutions - solutions which have been proven successful in practice - that provide an answer when a new challenge presents itself. Shifting delivery of services from hospitals to community settings is one of the biggest challenges that has faced the NHS in living memory, and one that will require no small measure of innovative thinking to overcome. The answer, however, will not be found in high tech IT systems, or process management, or any new medical gadgets - these are a given in such a complex sector. In its simplest form, the problem is about being able to provide a suitable clinical environment in a local setting, quickly, safely and cost-effectively. This video demonstrates the ways in which mobile healthcare facilities can be used to tackle the issues facing the modern NHS, and deliver the accessible and affordable innovation that NHS organisations need in this era of cost-saving and efficiency.
