AI and Machine Learning - Pathology, Medical Fit for Discharge and Mobilising HR

Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is in a somewhat unique position in that it builds its own Electronic Health Record. The ability to consider the application of Machine Learning algorithms hosted in cloud and delivering benefit directly into the EHR and therefore immediately on to the delivery of patient care are significant. Richard and Sarah will share the four keyway finder projects that LTHT will be delivering in 2019:

  • The ability for a machine learning algorithm to predict the Medically Fit For Discharge date directly into the EHR based on 15 years of history data as well as environmental open data
  • The ability to take environmental data around respiratory related impactful items being analysed via Machine Learning and provided into Leeds wide systems
  • The ability to use Machine Learning capability within the EHR to summarise clinical notes specific to clinician speciality
  • LTHT is the first hospital in the NHS to be 100% digital for pathology services, AI capability within this environment can be significant in augmenting the clinical workflow.

Pushing Past the Barriers to Collaborate

Collaboration between clinical teams that work for different organisations is often restricted by governance and historical system choices. The approach within PCFT when working with partners is to agree common tools that all staff will use to share patient information and gently align services on common platforms that are well designed and standardised.

Delivering a Benefits Driven Digital Strategy

An ambitious and innovative approach to using informatics technologies is needed to underpin the delivery of our strategic business, clinical and service objectives. At the United Lincolnshire Hospitals NHS Trust our Digital Strategy aims to deliver benefits to patients, the organisation, its staff and the wider health community.

The Trust recognises that it will not be possible to deliver the highest quality of compassionate care without investment in informatics technology to transform clinical services. These technologies are required to enable more efficient and effective clinical decisions that will improve the patient experience, improve the quality of patient safety and care, reduce clinical risk and improve organisational efficiency. Showing value for money for this investment is essential.

Using recent examples encompassed within the deployment of the Trusts Digital Strategy, this session will discuss the progress to date in delivering a ‘Benefits Driven’ approach. It will describe the challenges of identifying, measuring and realising this digitally enabled change programme.

Kent and Medway STP

Establishing an STP programme of work

The K&M STP is a footprint encompassing 8 CCG’s, 4 acute providers, multiple community providers and 2 local authorities.

Historically there have been patches of collaborative working however, not across the footprint geography. The STP identified its key priorities as the reconfiguration of stroke services, improvement in cancer outcomes, mental health and children’s services specifically those delivered in partnership with local authorities.

The presentation focuses on the development of these work streams, including developing a strategic commissioning function, relationships with individual organisations, coordinating consistency and dealing with conflict.
