Hear from Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust about how a new data-led solution is helping to better track patients being referred with suspected cancer to receive vital treatment and test results sooner.

The solution works by bringing together information that typically sits in different systems into one central view, so that the most up-to-date information is easily available for doctors and staff, removing potential delays for appointments and diagnostic tests.

This means patients referred for tests and scans could be told earlier whether they have cancer – minimising their time spent waiting anxiously for a diagnosis and ensuring they can access vital treatment sooner if they need it.

This session is part of the Improving Health Outcomes Theatre, which is supported by IQVIA.
