Transforming Long Term Conditions through innovation workshops - 24 January 2017

EMAHSN held an event on 24 January focused on patients with the following Long Term Conditions (LTCs):
  • Diabetes
  • Respiratory diseases
  • Cardiovascular diseases
Plus, reducing falls amongst our older people living with frailty.

Successful delivery of the five East Midlands Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) is of vital importance to improving patient care and delivering essential efficiency savings. Proven innovations produced by industry in collaboration with NHS and third sector organisations will be at the heart of NHS transformation across the region.  The event was held to bring sectors together and co-produce solutions to key LTCs challenges in our region.

The target outcomes were to:

  • Reduce or eliminate wasteful and unnecessary acute based outpatient appointments
  • Increase efficiency of care in primary care (particularly related to GP activity)
  • Reduce instances of escalation and emergency acute admissions
Demonstrators/projects following this Innovation Exchange event include: Outpatients appointment scheduling and Falls prevention

We've produced a pdfshort data and further information pack about the challenge areas / LTCs to help attendees at the event to focus on key issues.

A copy of the event brochure from the day including speaker biographies and case studies is available pdfhere.

The event generated possible solutions areas:
  • Tele-monitoring and condition management Improved systems, support and education for GPs
  • Integration of community pharmacy services
  • Outpatient appointment scheduling
  • Population risk stratification and health management
  • Diabetic foot management
  • Diabetes self-management and education
  • Respiratory self-management
  • Respiratory (pulmonary) rehabilitation
  • Cardiovascular diagnosis
  • Falls prevention and self-management
  • Falls monitoring
These areas have been reviewed and refined. Regional partners agreed to develop 3 areas in more detail and they form part of our EMAHSN CCG/STP Industry Engagement Programme - Supporting Innovation Based Transformation.

Others are not being taken forward, or work is already taking place in those areas on a national or regional level, e.g. diabetes.
