CASE STUDY 

Overview

London North West University Hospital is one of the largest integrated care trusts in the county with 33 adult critical care unit beds across two hospitals, was one of the hardest hit during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In response to the need to triage the large volumes of critically unwell patients that were expected to require critical care, Pathpoint was rapidly adapted and deployed to triage, track and review all critically unwell patients presenting to the hospital.

Being cloud-based, Pathpoint™ was able to incorporate the review of patients external to the physical confines of one unit or even hospital; enabling communication between clinicians about patients who may be transferred across units or hospitals as required upon escalation in treatment needs.

Real-time overview of all critical care patients, including against Covid-19 status, location, ventilation status, and additional patient requirements

High-level reporting of key metrics including aggregate numbers of ventilation requirements, and daily admissions, transfers and mortality figures
