Creating efficient and effective Trusts and hospitals

Bluespier Virtual Clinic

Bluespier Virtual Clinic enables Trusts and hospitals to revolutionise their clinics by assessing patients virtually.

The virtual follow up clinics, booked and managed within Bluespier Virtual Clinic, allow patients to remain at home whilst their condition is assessed by a consultant and staff nurse at the hospital.

Patients who require further treatment are invited to attend an in-hospital appointment.

Patients who require no follow up are discharged and sent appropriate leaflets and patient care information, all managed directly from Bluespier.

Originally part of the pioneering virtual clinic project in Glasgow Royal Infirmary, Bluespier Virtual Clinic is now used all over the U.K in departments such as fracture, ENT and diabetes and endocrinology.

The Bluespier Virtual Clinic has worn two healthcare awards for innovation.

A Bluespier Virtual Clinic Outcome:

  • Reduced DNAs and cancellations
  • Patient attendances in hospital can be reduced by over 75%*, with patients being able to wait in the comfort of their own home
  • Streamlined clinic management
  • Improved patient experience of up to 90% through reduced waiting periods
  • All patients reviewed by a consultant, providing a safer clinical process
  • Hospitals are more productive, with the right patients being seen by the right staff at the right time

  • 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.
