Because of the impact of COVID 19 waiting times are longer than ever. It’s important to quickly gain an accurate picture of who is waiting and for how long to better manage our capacity planning and to optimise the use of resources.

NHS Hospital Trusts use various IT systems and the information needed to co-ordinate patient care and proactively plan elective procedures is not easily held in one place.

Hear from colleagues at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust who developed a digital solution that brings all of the information together and provides a single tool for managing waiting lists and scheduling theatre sessions – to ensure we’re treating the right patients in the right order, faster.
