Dr James Maxwell, Consultant Rheumatologist and Clinical Lead, Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, will be presenting the MyPathway® project at the Digital health and care congress 2018.

Sheffield’s integrated musculoskeletal (MSK) service manages 47,000 referrals per year. In 2017 the MSK team have delivered significant improvements in patient engagement, reductions in costs and waiting times, as well as a dramatic increase in the level of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs), by rapid integration and deployment at scale of a digital patient communication system, MyPathway®.

Headline outcomes to date include:

  • 45% of all Sheffield’s MSK patients (including non-digital) signup and use MyPathway
  • 66% of new patients are processed administratively in 1 day (previously 7 days)
  • Average 58 patients in the administrative booking process, (previously 641 patients)
  • PROM return rates dramatically improved 75% of MyPathway users, c. 35% overall (previously 2-3%)

Dr Maxwell’s presentation will cover lessons from the rapid implementation and deployment of the digital patient communication system MyPathway® across Sheffield’s integrated musculoskeletal service.

The ADI team will be on hand to demonstrate MyPathway® in the events SME Zone on 10 and 11 July. Not attending the event? Click on our brochure to find out more, or watch the video and discover the benefits of MyPathway from the patient, clinician and CCG’s point of view.
