Telehealth benefits Realised
 …

A Yorkshire project proves the cost benefits of telehealth, says a report on the scheme by think-tank 2020health. The report evaluates the Yorkshire and the Humber Telehealth Hub, which was set up in 2011 as a partnership between Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Hull and South West Yorkshire Partnership NHS Foundation Trust. The aim was to reduce hospital admissions and prove cost benefits. Despite struggles with clinical engagement and very low uptake in some areas, more than 2000 patients were enrolled. In Hull, an pre-existing telemonitoring service for heart failure patients was extended with the aim to reach other telemonitoring projects around the east of the region, and offer the triage service to other disease groups. During the year, Hull managed 283 deployments. The service was also extended to NHS East Riding of Yorkshire and in total 620 patients enrolled. The report says that both these services had been evaluated and found to yield financial return on investment. “Based on a savings assumption of £2,000 per averted admission, and (taking account of total service costs) this represents a return on investment of 48%. User cases and evidence base still emerging, but show benefits from avoided admissions and care closer to home”. Author of the report, John Cruickshank, told eHealth Insider he had been very impressed with what he saw. “There’s some pretty clear evidence of cost benefits”, said Cruickshank. He added that the project had shown more cost benefits than what had been seen so far in the Whole System Demonstrator report. “We’re on course to show improvement, and that can be built upon,” he said. While hub managed to enrol more than 2100 patients throughout the year of the scheme, , the report says the hub was “overly ambitious, evidenced by a relatively low uptake of the services beyond the partners.”In Sheffield, a telecoaching service, which provided telephone based coaching to patients with long term conditions, was set to be rolled out to 250 patients. Only five were recruited and the service ran for three months. The same service was offered to NHS East Riding of Yorkshire GP practices, but only three accepted, resulting in 50 patients enrolled in the scheme. Cruickshank said one of the problems was that getting patients on board was time consuming.He added that although the project overall had been a success, there was still a problem with telehealth pilots only producing small numbers.“The point of ‘pilotitis’ is a fair one. The NHS has been stuck looking at small numbers and pilots,” he said.“There’s a glass ceiling to be broken through, the pilots become stuck at a few hundred patients.” The report aims to highlight lessons learnt and make recommendations for the future in context of the 3millionlives campaign.Cruickshank said the government needed to ‘join up thinking’ and that different projects such as 3millionlives and electronic records were all aiming for the same thing.He believed that introducing tariffs and incentives would encourage organisations to engage in telehealth projects. “Unless there’s a mandate it will only happen in bit and pieces, but it’s too early for that. However, organisations should at least have to show that they have looked at and considered telehealth. If you get the right incentives in place, it will start to come about.”The telehealth hub was set up by NHS Yorkshire and Humber with £900,000 funding from the Regional Innovation ... Read more

USARAD.COM Launches National Outpatient Emergency …

Novel Program Pairs Urgent Care Clinics with local Imaging Centers MOUNT LAUREL, N.J.—November 22, 2012--USARAD.com launches a national program which caters to a new and growing national trend in healthcare, surge of urgent care clinics. Recent statistics demonstrate that patients access urgent care centers in great numbers due to convenience, quick service and decreased costs as compared to traditional hospital ERs. There are over 8,700 urgent care centers in the US today, approximately 4,500 of which are fully-fledged centers that would meet the criteria for a Certified Urgent Care center. Despite many benefits, however, urgent care clinics are typically equipped to handle only relatively simple conditions such as minor trauma and common colds. One of the main reasons for such limitation is related to lack of advanced imaging modalities including CT, MRI and ultrasound to properly diagnose more complex conditions such as solid organ injury, brain bleed and appendicitis. Most urgent care facilities generally offer x-ray service only. Over the past 6 months USARAD.com has participated in a small pilot program in Texas where an urgent care clinic shares a facility with an imaging center with USARAD.com providing 24/7 teleradiology service.  There is no question that such an arrangement has already had a significant positive benefit on a local community with patients benefiting the most.  More complex conditions can be diagnosed more quickly and efficiently and the patients can be discharged home rapidly without spending all night in the hospital, and at a fraction of hospital’s cost.  Just like a hospital emergency room, advanced modalities including CT, MRI and ultrasound can now be offered 24/7 in an outpatient emergency setting with USARAD.com providing immediate radiology reports while the patient is waiting, with an average turn-around-time of just 15-20 minutes. Michael Yuz, MD, MBA, USARAD.com founder and CEO notes, “USARAD.com is redefining the role of urgent care clinics by helping them to convert into mini outpatient Emergency Rooms and giving them immediate access to complex imaging modalities on a 24-7 basis. By connecting outpatient imaging centers with adjacent or local urgent care clinics, USARAD.com serves as a matchmaker in this process. USARAD.com offers service in all 50 states and is indeed best positioned to take such a program national.”  If you operate either Urgent Care clinics or Imaging centers and are interested to join the network, participate or learn more, please fill out the information form on USARAD.com.  You can also visit us at the RSNA conference in Chicago Nov 24-29, 2012 or contact David Morgan at 888-886-5238 x 44, David Bohacs at 888-886-5238 x 45 or Zack Stein at (727) 463-0814.
