Collaborate: multi-disciplinary teams
Bleepa’s clinical-grade image sharing combined with its asynchronous communication supports efficient, cost-effective multi-disciplinary team working across care settings.
The power of asynchronous communication
Coordinating face-to-face multi-disciplinary team meetings can be difficult and expensive when you believe these conversations have to happen synchronously.
In asynchronous communication, messages are sent to colleagues who in turn reply in and around their other clinical commitments; a radiologist can message a surgeon about a patient, who can then reply between theatre cases. Team working now fits around clinical work rather than vice versa.
Improving patient outcomes
Whilst a more efficient way of working is great for clinicians, the real reward is for patients. Patients no longer need to wait for the next multi-disciplinary team slot for their treatment to be discussed and progressed along the care pathway.
The process can start straight away, accelerating investigation and treatment – helping to drive down any backlog by accelerating pathways.
Improving team communication
An independent evaluation of Bleepa at Northern Care Alliance showed significant benefits in terms of clinical communication, with 80% of surveyed staff identifying an improvement in communication when using Bleepa compared to previous referral methods.
The report showed an average of 4.8 messages were exchanged per referral whilst using Bleepa.
Providing the solution
With Bleepa, multi-disciplinary team working can be more efficient, with clinicians having all the pertinent information available in one place, and those involved can be involved remotely.
