A background to the highly qualified and experienced staff at PatientSource. The team is made from clinicians, engineers and experienced business men
PatientSource Limited is a medical technology company set up by NHS doctors and based in Cambridge UK.
PatientSource is partnered with Microsoft who provide our secure infrastructure, and Trustmarque who provide PatientSource to healthcare organisations as a fully managed IT service.
“Transform the health of millions by making healthcare smarter.”
Technology has the power to greatly enhance clinical practice, but only when that technology is designed by doctors and nurses themselves.
Clinical usability is the most important factor to successfully bring technology to Medicine. Technology has to be as easy to use as paper if it is ever going to be able to replace it.
Paper records and charts can harm patients.
Paper records are expensive to store, maintain and use.
Data kept on paper or in silos is a lost opportunity to improve hospitals and to improve Medicine.
Getting patient data digital and bringing it together in one place are the essential steps to smarter healthcare.
Artificial Intelligence can assist clinicians to perform even better, so long as the AI has sight of all relevant patient data.
Artificial Intelligence is better than humans at some types of task and worse than humans at many others. The best clinical team consists of both humans and AI. Artificial Intelligence works best as an assistant to doctors and nurses.
What we are trying to build
A paperless hospital platform:
PatientSource is the engine which makes hospitals and community healthcare paperless. It delivers immediate benefits in efficiency and patient safety.
By running on PatientSource, healthcare organisations will build up a rich repository of patient data covering symptoms, signs, test results and treatment outcomes. This professionally curated data can be analysed, queried, and used to derive insights.
Artificial Intelligence driven healthcare:
We are developing powerful Artificial Intelligence capabilities into PatientSource for our clients to make more use of their patients’ data:
Real world evidence: Reveal optimal treatments in areas where medicine currently lacks evidence based upon variances in patients treatments and how that correlates with their outcomes.
Clinical decision support: to advise doctors on the best course of action based upon the patient’s individual case, by using a combination of machine learning from other patient cases and evidence-based algorithms.
Predicting patient deterioration: Early detection of patients who are showing subtle signs of deterioration by using a combination of data, well before traditional methods (vital signs, lab results) can.
Forecasting service demand: Analysing current patient population trends, taking into account other data sources (e.g. weather), to predict how many hospital beds will be needed and what the likely case mix will be.
At PatientSource Ltd, clinicians and patients are involved all the way through software development. We use agile development techniques driven by clinicians and patients to continually improve our products and services.
The result is the PatientSource Platform: our user-friendly, cloud-based and tablet-ready electronic medical records system for secondary care. PatientSource can make clinical staff more efficient and patients safer.
