Working with the NHS, Health Navigator helps predict and prevent avoidable urgent and emergency care, by combining artificial intelligence with proactive health coaching. This helps address the £6bn challenge of patients who frequently present at A&E as a result of not receiving the sort of holistic care (support, social services, referrals to planned care) that could have avoided the need for them to return. In addition to significantly improved patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs), some deployments in NHS environments have shown: a 59% decrease in unplanned admissions; 52% reduction in A&E attendances; and nearly 40% reduction in total hospital costs for their patients (including bed days, NELs, attendances).
Locum’s Nest is a temporary staffing management platform to help address the NHS workforce challenge. It combines advanced mobile technology with personal service to connect doctors to locum work in healthcare organisations.
