Introducing The Healthnet Platform - an integrated healthcare technology platform that can be configured to join up any clinical service in hospital, community clinics, general practice and the patient at home or care home.
Using secure, web based technology, The Healthnet Platform gives the clinician options for new and efficient ways of working.
The Healthnet Platform is set up for online referrals between healthcare centres (eg family practices to hospital specialist departments) as follows:
The patient has contact with the GP and a problem needing specialists advice is identified.
The patient is registered using their NHS number on the Healthnet Platform.
A Healthfile is created for the patient and symptom added with history.
Images are uploaded to the symptom using the patient’s own pictures or those taken at the surgery using the supplied webcam and dermatoscope.
Relevant patient notes are added to the referral.
The referral is made to the specialist.
A can be sent directly to a patient at home to add their own symptom history and images. This can automatically make a referral straight to a specialist.
Specialists view the referral and an outcome is made:
Diagnosis and advice on treatment and discharge.
Diagnosis, treatment plan and follow up on the platform to assess progress.
Integrated triage leading to a face to face appointment or book direct for a procedure.
Outcome immediately available to the referring centre on the Healthnet Platform.
This configuration allows the specialist department to manage the referrals on a day to day basis.
Examples of use.
GP Practice to consultant, eg Dermatologist.
District nurses to dermatologist for wound care.
Care home via GP to dermatologist.
Prisons to dermatologist.
CCG GP’s to dermatologist.
