Concentric digital consent
Concentric is a digital consent (aka econsent) application which transforms the traditional paper consent form process and is now in use across a number of NHS Trusts and Health Boards across the UK, including Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust and Chelsea and Westminster Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. Consent for treatment is a key element of care, in terms of the quality of clinical decision-making, experiences of patient-centred care, and organisational medico-legal risk.
Automated Scheduling for Elective Care Appointments
COVID-19 has generated a significant backlog of elective patients that need appointments generated as quickly as possible. Trusts are keen to avoid hiring more staff to solve the problem and are looking to digital workers instead. Bots can assist with the recovery of elective care in a predictable and consistent way. For example, Automation Anywhere's Robotic Interface (AARI) can be used to extract patient details from referral systems, before cross-checking details against SPINE. Once validated, bookings can be made within the PAS terminal. All bookings and referrals are triaged in e-RS (e-Referral Service) with the outcome.

The solution empowers instant engagement, offering patients the option to self-select responses from their mobile, whilst avoiding long phone queue times, and with the analytics to immediately flag urgent patients for clinical review.
