1 Meeting the needs of Healthcare

2 Healthcare: quality care today, and a healthcare system for tomorrow Like all advanced healthcare systems the NHS is faced with growing pressure from rising expectations and rising demand. Patients needs and expectations are changing, and increasing numbers are enjoying longer life-spans. The combined effects of an aging population and lifestyle choices are resulting in increased prevalence of long-term conditions. Today s generations of patients have grown up with the NHS and demand that services will be both accessible and convenient. They want greater participation in decisions on their healthcare, and they expect services that are adapted to their individual needs. Many are adept at using technology and connectivity to share experiences and to inform their own decisions. The NHS is also leading advances in medical technology and new approaches to care. These provide access to a greater choice of interventions, resulting in improved outcomes and a higher quality of patient experience. They allow patients who used to be hospitalised to be supported in the community. But they can also drive higher costs, or demand increasingly advanced and specialised professional expertise. Today more than ever, health organisations are under pressure to maintain high levels of service while working on tight budgets. With the help of VMware, we were able to make savings and realise efficiency benefits across the entire organisation. We know we can rely on VMware to keep our most mission critical systems running, from A&E to operating theatres. James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust Business impact NHS managers are required to deliver the quality of experience that every patient expects, while executing an ambitious agenda designed to accelerate reform, improve accountability and patient outcomes, and maintain tight control over budgets. ICT professionals need to deliver a technology platform that will adapt to structural change at an organisational level, and at the same time support front-line improvement initiatives at the individual team level. The technology platform will need the flexibility to cope with a changing future. In the back office, for example, many NHS organisations are moving towards a shared service model, but first they need to create efficiencies, and simplify existing processes. Improving the patient experience UK healthcare providers have made extensive use of process improvement techniques to change the way that care is delivered. Initiatives led by front-line staff have a lasting effect on working environments, facilitate team working, release more time for patient care, and hence improve both efficiency and the quality of care that is delivered. The patient discharge process is just one example of how improvements can help to reduce the length of stay in hospital, release capacity in the system and save cost, in addition to helping staff to better distribute their workload, reduce waiting times, improve the patient experience, and reduce the incidence of medical complications. Implementing information systems to support improvements in patient care can be particularly demanding for ICT professionals. They need to equip front-line staff with tools to achieve a smooth flow of information between different healthcare professionals, patient families and those outside the healthcare system such as social service providers, and ensure that user interfaces are effective in a front-line working environment.

3 They also need to provide associated business solutions that support a demanding range of patient management and administration functions, interface with other healthcare information systems, and communicate with partner organisations. Successful implementation depends on a smooth transition from legacy systems, and a stable architecture. Solutions based around End User Computing and an agile infrastructure for example mobile clinician feature strongly here. Clinically-led change Ambitious trusts are rethinking aspects of their operations, as they increase focus on the needs of service users and patients, achieve higher quality of patient care, and adapt their response to local needs. These include new ways to handle the pathway of care between hospitals and community services and engage with the public and other stakeholders; changes in the scale and scope of corporate services and the strategy for their estate portfolio, and new approaches to decision making and accountability, such as service-line management led by clinicians. As patients exercise their right to choose providers, each trust will aim to build on different areas of strength and will want to actively manage its performance in these areas. These changes have implications for the way that business and clinical decisions are informed. Managers need information systems they can trust to deliver a reliable service, accurate financial and operational information, and that also adapt to a changing agenda. Business systems that reinforce service excellence, and best-of-breed service specialism are a key feature to coping with an uncertain future. Efficiency and effectiveness in the back office Many NHS organisations know that they are operating below maximum efficiency in their back office operations, and they are exploring reductions in the cost of functions such as HR, finance, procurement, and ICT to release additional resources for patient care. Shared services will make better use of back office resources, but before doing this, trusts should first aim to simplify their local back office processes, and re-engineer back office functions to a common standard. Like other back office functions the ICT function must also be efficient, and inevitably it will need to reduce the cost of operational services. But, ICT professionals also need to ensure that they have the resources and skills to support improvement initiatives, in addition to optimising the return on existing investments by ensuring that these can be adapted to meet future needs. Striving for higher levels of virtualization and automation will increase efficiency and effectiveness, driving resources into key front-line services, and preparing the infrastructure to support change. We have made significant savings as a result of virtualizing, including a 75% decrease in our power costs. Virtualization has also been the foundation for our move to a new cloud infrastructure through which we will deliver IT services to our own users and have the capability to provide services to other NHS trusts. Liverpool Women s NHS Trust Contributions from Kable MEETING THE NEEDS OF HEALTHCARE / 3

4 Shared back office The optimum size for an efficient back office function is generally judged to be larger than many of today s local NHS back office functions. Apart from being more efficient, increased scale allows larger back-office functions to expand the scope and raise the quality of the services. There are many different ways to increase scale. Trusts that take on additional responsibilities and absorb existing services through reorganisation or restructuring will find opportunities to deliver early savings by eliminating duplication through consolidation of back office functions. Informal collaboration allows neighbouring trusts to each retain a relatively high level of control, and is quick to establish and deliver returns. Increasingly formal arrangements provide a platform that can support more extensive development, and may be required where cooperatives and social enterprises are involved. Outsourcing to a commercial partner can bring external resources and expertise and more fully exploit the potential of scale economies, technology and standardisation. In moving towards shared services it is therefore essential that neither the ICT infrastructure nor the solution portfolio unduly restrict the options that are available to a trust. Careful planning is required to ensure that both can adapt as the approach to shared back office services evolves. Where external service providers are involved they will wish to ensure that contract structures allow their key suppliers to be equally adaptable. A flexible, agile infrastructure built on the key foundation of private cloud technologies will be a first step to offering services for wider consumption, or having those services run elsewhere. No single approach will fit all situations, and requirements will change over time. Contributions from Kable MEETING THE NEEDS OF HEALTHCARE / 4
