Creating efficient and effective Trusts and hospitals

Trauma

The electronic Trauma Board is a revolutionary way of managing trauma patients. Trauma teams have complete oversight of patient location, treatment history, planned treatment and status and CQUINs all in real time. The easily accessible, real-time information provides a more efficient, safer way of working in highly pressurised trauma environments.

This results in;

  • Reduced duplication caused by paper records
  • Better communication between clinical teams
  • Achievement and management of treatment targets
  • Reduced clinical risk
  • More accurate reporting for outcome measures and coding
  • Keep sight of patients whether in hospital or not

Stock

Clinical teams can better manage their stock processes and capture accurate coding and costing of stock as part of everyday workflows. Bluespier Stock enables responsible management of resources, with innovative stock tracking and reordering processes that help departments all over the country reduce cancellations and minimise wastage.

This results in;

  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced unnecessary cancellations
  • Better planning and more accurate reordering
  • Minimised resource wastage
  • Significant cost savings

Pre-Op

Bluespier Pre-Op makes the preoperative process more efficient, simpler and safer for patients.

Assessments are completed electronically by pre-op nurses in a paper-light environment. Results are immediately visible to all relevant clinical teams, streamlining the pre-op to theatre journey. Pre-op completion can be monitored and managed well in advance to ensure patients are not missed and are suitable for theatre.

This results in;

  • Increased efficiency
  • Reduced clinical risk
  • Accessibility and visibility for clinicians
  • Reduced unnecessary cancellations
  • A positive impact on patient experience

Virtual Fracture Clinic

Bluespier Virtual Fracture Clinic revolutionises the way A&E fracture patients are managed to reduce patient waiting time and improve clinical process.

Orthopaedic fracture patients who have attended A&E are assessed virtually by a consultant prior to any appointments being given. The consultant, with a lead nurse, reviews the patient notes and x-rays on Bluespier and then triages the patient to the most appropriate route.

This results in;

  • Easy access to important patient records for clinical staff
  • Increased productivity
  • More effective use of consultants, junior doctors and nurse time
  • Reduced waiting times by up to 50%*
  • Improved quality of care
  • High patient satisfaction

  • The flexibility and configurability of Bluespier has meant we have easily been able to adapt the system to fit into working practices of all our theatre suites. Clinicians and theatre staff like the system and find it easy to use and as a result there is a high level of buy in. We are now able to capture data that was previously unavailable or prohibitively time consuming to capture. This data is now assisting us in improving theatre management and utilisation.

  • Bluespier has an excellent reporting facility and audit trail. It has helped to monitor and reduce late starts and early admissions. You can quickly see where a cancellation has happened and access spaces where patients can be fitted in. We can look at what is needed in theatres, and if for example, lamina flow is required we can move lists around. It is an excellent system.

    Alison Bent, Elective Access Coordinator, Harrogate NHS Trust

  • Our Bluespier software is the envy of other directorates. Keeping tabs on our emergency patients used to be nightmarish. We had confusing and competing paper-based lists all of which were perpetually out of sync and out of date with different lists being used for our patients all over the Trust. This is a thing of the past. From admission through x-rays, Trauma meetings and ward rounds, to theatre and beyond, all patient information is available in real time in a central location, easily accessible remotely by approved clinicians from any computer in the network.

    Danny Redfern, Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Royal Preston Major Trauma Centre

  • Bluespier helps us each day to ensure that our theatres are utilised to maximum capacity, our elective patients do not breach the 18 week rule and theatre staff are fully occupied. This means that we give the best value for money possible as our resources are used efficiently. Patients and their families can be kept easily informed and quality is continuously improving. For example, in anaesthetics, where we use the system to monitor patient outcomes. We don’t know how we would manage without it.

    Julie Fairweather, Theatre Information Manager, Harrogate NHS Trust

  • The Trust has seen a reduction in the number of cancellations on the day of surgery due to implants missing (only 6 in the last year). As far as patient care is concerned the system gives confidence and reduces the likelihood of procedures being cancelled due to stock issues. The access to data for usage figures, costing and inventory access is superior in all aspects to the previous system.

    Louise Barry, Utilisation and Resource Manager, Surgical Services Division, RJAH

  • The team at Bluespier was absolutely fantastic in terms of helping meet the very challenging deadline. It was very much all hands on deck to help reach the deployment project’s ambitious goal.
