Editor's Notes

  • Good morning, ladies and gentlemen.
    How we can use patient summaries / medical histories/ data in the emergency room to improve decision making: quality and speed?
  • 30% cognitive decline, Decision ; rational mind observing your intuitive mind…
    Dual process: analytical and intuitive thinking
  • The patient feels sick and seeks healthcare in a country that is not his/her country of origin.
    The most frequent situation is that the health professional has no prior clinical information
    about that patient and it is not expected that his visit will be repeated. They will not normally
    have a language in common.
  • .Establishing incentives for high quality recording or assembly of patient summary data can directly improve data insights guiding interventions with direct impact on increased productivity, and patient satisfaction. Note that the concept of health system navigators is not new. It was first introduced by Harold Freeman in 1990. Assisted by medical students, patients are able to navigate the logistical, emotional, and frequently cultural barriers of receiving care. Patients are assisting in assessing the situation and choices, articulate objectives, evaluate alternatives and reach decisions. In the end, healthcare is analog and human touch is paramount. Digital health tools can help fill the intention gap!
  • Systems of record – SQL / CDA/CCD /
    Systems of differentiation – IHE Profiles / PCHA/Continua Profiles
    Systems of innovation – FHIR / OpenEHR Archetypes

    Data drive a wave of automation aspiring to improve care
    forge connections of health & wellness, medical research, and clinical decision support.
    Healthcare systems can rely on digital technologies to
    sustain costs, improve access, provide quality care facing dwindling resources and increasing demand
    offer mobile patient- and provider-facing apps
    mix patient-generated data with provider medical notes
    use data to shape personalized care pathways
    provide just-in time access to health services in person or online

    Health information technology standards are at the core of the compass, to tap the potential of shared aggregate data and sustain trust.
  • A more digitally connected doctor would make millions of people breathe a sigh of relief.

    Unnecessary paperwork and phone calls make Americans dread visiting the doctor more than other everyday tasks.
    We argue that citizens need a digital health compass to unlock the power of their health information, drive their engagement in personal health information management, and identify the most suitable health services for the situation at hand. With increasing quantity and uneven quality of health data, patient summaries could be the starting point to write an individual’s health story.

    Lots of paper. An average visit is 15 minutes of which
    5 minutes is paper work and 6 minutes is verbally sharing health data.

    Patients get used to doctors with digital technology they think they are organized innovative and compettant. Are more open if they can communication with email or text. Fill paper work online, receives tests and medical records online, schedule appointments online.

  • Americans say doctors still walk into most appointments without critical information about their patients
  • Establish the case for the international patient summary as a citizen’s right and enabler of safe care.
    Validate the global role of the international patient summary in different contexts
    Consult with key stakeholder groups to identify needs, and use cases to promote the international patient summary
    Assess key enablers and success factors for benefit realization in adopting international patient summary standards
  • This workshop will:
    Introduce the aims of the Trillium II project
    Present approaches from three different countries: Denmark, USA
    Collect input on the International Patient Summary among participants
    Open a discussion on how to assess, bridge and harmonizing relevant initiatives around the globe in an effort to attract new members to GC-DHIP and create a network effect that will nurture innovation and fuel creativity with global standards serving as infrastructure for interoperability.
  • Jan 2017:
    A chatbot will now answer NHS 111 inquiries from more than a million Londoners as the health system looks for new ways to manage the growing health burden.
    NHS England has announced a new deal between health app company Babylon Health and North Central London CCGs, which will be testing an “NHS 111 powered by Babylon”.
    The app is essentially an chatbot drive by clinically-based algorithms that will triage patients without human intervention based on reported symptoms, a process that NHS England claims will take as little as two minutes.
    Based on the symptoms and its own algorithms, the app could refer the patient to hospital or recommend a GP appointment the next day.
    In a statement, NHS England said: “The app will provide an alternative mechanism of accessing integrated urgent care and connecting patients to clinicians, and will aim to reduce pressure on the NHS during the busy winter period and beyond.”
    “It will tell people where to go and who to see, as close to their home as possible, so they can make the right choices.”
    However, doctors have already expressed concerns about the reliance on algorithms and self-reported symptoms for determining the severity of a person’s illness.
    Dr Chaand Nagpaul, the British Medical Association GP committee chairman, told the Guardianthe app would rely “slavishly” on algorithms and could not replace the judgement of trained clinicians.

    While this is the first-time NHS 111 has relied solely on an AI to field patient inquiries, non-clinical call staff already rely on computer algorithms to make triage decisions.
    This had led to widespread criticism, with GPs calling for the “shipwreck” service to be scrapped entirely in 2015, claiming it was pumping up demand unnecessarily by being too risk adverse.
    The London pilot is being run through London Central and West Unscheduled Care Collaborative (LCW), a GP-led not-for-profit organisation that already runs the local NHS 111 service. It will cover the boroughs of Camden, Islington, Enfield and Barnet.
    Starting this month, it will run for six months, although patients living in the area will still be able to use the NHS 111 telephone service.
    Digital Health News understands it is one of four pilots planned this year to test how artificial intelligence can be used to ease pressure on NHS 111, a service that receives about 15 million calls a year.
    LCW chief operating officer Adam Duncan said the organisation would conduct a “robust” assessment of the apps value in improving the NHS 111 service.
    “The use of the app could also reduce the demand on NHS 111 during the most busy periods, whilst retaining the high quality and accessible service.”
    Babylon is chiefly known as a subscription based remote GP consultation service which provides video consultations through your phone for a monthly fee or a one-off payment.
    However, in June last year the company launched a AI triage tool, likely to be the model for the new NHS 111 chatbot app, pitting it against real clinicians in a demonstration.
    During the trial, the AI tool usually gave different, and more cautious, advice than the clinician.
    Babylon chief executive Ali Parsa said the pilot would help put “accessible healthcare into the hands of everyone”.
    “We should all be proud that our NHS is now becoming a pioneer in adopting cutting edge technology to deliver a timely and accurate digital triage service.”
    The pilots come after health secretary Jeremy Hunt announced an expansion of the NHS 111 service to include a new online “triage service”, for less serious health problems, in September last year.
    An online NHS 111 triage service has been announced by the government before, most recently in 2015.
    AI triage tool for 50million pounds; 300K users, June 2016
    AI function was pitted against 20 nurses and 15 junior doctors in 102 clinical scenarios.
    A panel of GPs found the doctors gave the correct triage advice 77.5% of the time, nurses 73.5% of the time, and the babylon AI 90.2% of the time.
  • The point is that barriers to current data sharing will also exist for sharing and use of patient summaries.
  • To develop, deliver, test and deploy standards sets which are properly adapted to a dynamic healthcare system, we need a constant flow of interaction between three types of activities:

    Co-creation between all relevant stakeholders
    to make it real using standards

    A supportive and appropriate governance system
    to make it scale toward large-scale deployment

    The flexibility to adapt and align as needs and requirements change
    to make it stay in a sustainable way
  • Co-create: identify situations of patient summary use beyond emergency and unplanned care
    Bridge: patient summary projects and initiatives identifying good and bad practices
    Validate: Develop, Collect, Assess learning resources to validate content
    Engage: mobile Health community to foster innovation & inform health policy
    Contribute: feedback to standards organizations improving patient summary standards

    The purpose of the Global community for digital health innovation practice is to identify relevant projects and use cases of interest that will help validate and promote the use of international patient summary standards in demonstrations, readiness exercises, and other pilot projects.
    Founding members of GC-DHIP are members of the Trillium-II consortium that have committed to pilot project demonstrations.
    Additional organizations and pilot projects implementing patient summaries are invited to join.
    eHealth programs of Luxenburg (eSante), Catalonia, Spain (TicSalut), Denmark (MedCom), Portugal (SPMS), Sequoia (US), HSPC (US) are part of the steering committee of GC-DHIP and Henrique Martins, is the first chairman.
    The community has also close connections to the eHealth Digital Services Infrastructure services established under the Connected Europe Facility.
