Theatre 2 - 1C
Supporter session , Driving recovery

Significant advancement in years lived well for patients through the Medefer virtual outpatient platform, identifying patients most in need, getting them access to the right care whilst making the most of clinical workforce capacity.

An interactive session where Medefer and its NHS partners share experience of keeping patients at the centre of pathway transformation for a long-term sustainable model.

Hear from Joe Smyth, chief operating officer at Isle of Wight NHS Trust, about how the implementation of a system-wide, virtual care platform increased operational efficiencies, created space for patients who required a face-to-face appointment, significantly reduced referral to treatment, and improved GP engagement, quality of patient referrals and equitable access to care. The Isle of Wight partnership with Medefer was the winner of the Best Elective Care Recovery Initiative in the 2022 HSJ Partnership Awards

Tracy Rubery, director of transformation NHS North East London CCG, will speak openly about the partnership with Medefer and lessons they have learned in their gastroenterology pathway, which supported the clinical team before and through COVID-19 to deliver only compliance and sustain no-waits for gastroenterology.

Chaired by Mike Farrar, who adds a national and international experience to discussions.

This session is supported by Medefer.
