eConsult Health Limited invites you to their event

Creating the NHS's biggest virtual Outpatient Department

About this event

In the context of the largest waiting list ever seen, NHS organisations are keen to innovate and navigate how best to serve their patients to continue to deliver the best care possible.

In a collaborative project, Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust and eConsult are creating the NHS’ biggest virtual outpatients department, across 40 specialties.

eConsult’s end-to-end digital patient management system will empower the hospital to ask referred patients a specialist list of questions, triaging them at the outpatient referral stage, to reduce waiting list backlog, join up care, and improve patients’ experience.

Why join this webinar?

This webinar, the first in a series of three, will be a roundtable discussion by digital and innovation experts talking about:

  • The problems facing specialist care and how digital solutions can help to reduce the backlog
  • The work preceding the partnership between MSE and eConsult and how it came about
  • The exciting work going on within it and how it will change the patient and clinic experience
  • The key deliverables that make this work an exciting prospect for the future of Outpatients departments nationwide.

Our panel:

  • Dr Tim Ringrose, President of the Digital Health Section, Royal Society of Medicine
  • Professor Tony Young OBE, National Clinical Lead for Innovation at NHS England, Consultant Surgeon at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust
  • Erica White, Programme Director, Innovation and Entrepreneurship, Strategy Unit at Mid and South Essex NHS Foundation Trust
