Nervecentre Software Ltd, provider of mobile healthcare technology and communications solutions that enable acute hospital trusts to improve efficiency, governance and patient safety, and reduce length of stay, has had its work with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust recognised within the QIPP Collection on the NICE Evidence website, which highlights examples of good practice in the NHS.
The QIPP Collection demonstrates how NHS staff is saving money without compromising on quality. The Technologies included within the collection are considered the ‘must do’ technologies that Trusts should deploy.
Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust has adopted Nervecentre as its strategic mobile information and communications solution, facilitating improved hospital processes through access to accurate and timely information on mobile devices. NUH implemented Nervecentre as its Hospital at Night solution over 24 months ago in both the City and QMC hospitals, and independent studies have shown numerous benefits including a 70% reduction in clinical incidents and significant reduction in length of stay.
The aim of the initiative was to improve the quality and speed of communication between doctors and nurses, reduce information loss and improve satisfaction for both clinicians and patients by improved efficiency and safety of out-of hours care. The initiative demonstrates a saving of £757,000 for a population of 2.5 million equating to £30,280 per 100,000 population.
Following the success of this deployment, NUH has already employed Nervecentre’s mobile communications technology to improve a number of other hospitals processes.
The QIPP Collection contains case studies that demonstrate how health and social care staff are improving quality and productivity across the NHS and social care and are evaluated based on quality improvements, savings, evidence and implementation. If the examples included within the QIPP Collection were adopted by just 50% of eligible organisations, they are estimated to have the potential to save health and social care organisations over £2 billion.
Paul Volkaerts, Managing Director of Nervecentre, “We are delighted our work with Nottingham University Hospitals NHS Trust has been recognised within the QIPP collection. Nervecentre is committed to helping NHS Trusts improve productivity and quality through innovative collaboration technology.”
