Enabling Virtual Multi-Disciplinary Team Meetings (MDTs)
MDTs are a most efficient way of delivering joined-up care for patients with complex health needs. For example, National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends every cancer patient is reviewed by an MDT to determine the best treatment pathway and patient management.
Within the private sector, it can be a logistical challenge to organise regular MDT meetings when all specialists are available and this also has cost implications.
It may not always be practical for specialists to meet face-to-face but if MDTs are to work effectively, good communication is critical. For example, patient data such as test results and diagnostic analysis must be shared between members so they can make evidence-based treatment decisions without delay, supported by the right expertise.
This demands a secure solution for sharing confidential and sensitive information electronically.
healthDrive enables private healthcare operators to support MDTs in providing the best possible care for patients.
- Key patient data such as imaging results from X-rays, Ultrasound, MRI/CT scans, pathology test and biopsy results can be held in one secure, central place.
- Clinicians and other healthcare professionals can share relevant information quickly, easily and without compromising patient confidentiality.
- Efficient information-sharing ensures MDTs can make treatment decisions quickly and provide the best patient care.
