Providing safe, effective care for the frail and elderly

With the number of over 65s set to increase by 64% over the next 20 years, we need to start planning for greater amounts of vulnerable elderly patients. Through coordinated care, we can help you ensure that those most at risk receive the support that they deserve, both now and in the future.

How can we help?

  • Work together across all healthcare organisations to provide connected care, enabling quicker processes and creating cost savings.
  • Identify which patients are most at risk, helping to reduce unplanned hospital admissions and identifying those who need help the most.
  • Provide care from anywhere with EMIS Mobile.
  • Enhanced reporting and analysis tools allow monitoring of treatment given.

Interconnected care

By sharing crucial information, every clinician involved in a patient’s healthcare journey has important insight when deciding on a course of treatment. 

Secondary care can send test results and automated hospital discharge letters to primary care, whilst real-time patient data ensures that everyone is kept up to date with a patient’s progress.

 A comprehensive and streamlined path of care can be created, freeing up time for clinicians and enabling them to focus on patient treatment. 

Empowering patients – and their carers

  • Patient Access will give carers essential guidance through access to care plans and patient leaflets by proxy.
  • Share Your Record means that patients can give clinicians emergency access to their medical records.
  • Patient’s wishes can be shared with other healthcare organisations, ensuring that their intentions are respected.
  • Online consultations are helping 60% of patients to resolve their health concerns without visiting the practice.
  • Appointments can be attended via video conferencing, helping those who have difficulties with mobility.

Management and measurement

Detailed oversight and streamlined processes means more patient time and lowered costs:

“Care needs to be just as important as treatment. Older people should be properly valued and listened to, and treated with compassion, dignity and respect at all times. They need to be cared for by skilled staff who are engaged, understand the particular needs of older people and have time to care.”
