The health and social care sectors are on a mandated digital journey. Transforming ways of working and ensuring robust, secure connectivity are key pillars of the UK Government’s policy for delivering frontline services efficiently and cost-effectively.
Vodafone in Health and eConsult Health have joined forces to help reduce patient waiting times and enhance patient safety across NHS Emergency Departments and Urgent Treatment Centres. eConsult’s digital triage solution was designed to automatically check-in and prioritise patients upon arrival based on clinical need, speeding up the streaming process, identifying sick patients earlier, reducing the waiting time and time to treatment.
Underpinning this is Vodafone’s secure digital infrastructure, enabling healthcare providers to accelerate adoption of the digital platform and ensure adaptability to scale based on patient demand.
Uniting our capabilities, we are striving to achieve our common goal of reducing health inequalities and democratising healthcare access, by building a truly digital front door to care.
Patients are demanding change. They want better outcomes, more immediacy and are accepting of virtual ways of working. The pandemic has re-engineered society on our behalf.
