The Medworxx SAFER offering enables hospitals to track SAFER requirements and Red2Green days as an integrated process in combination with evidence-based Clinical Utilisation Review (CUR) assessments. This approach enables customers to achieve maximum benefit from both CUR & SAFER using a single automated patient flow solution – leading to benefits for patients and benefits for hospitals operationally & financially. The Medworxx solution ensures clear differentiation between inappropriate conservable days of care (CUR) and Red2Green status of patient treatment or service delays, which do not connote a conservable day.
Two NHS Priorities: One Solution
In support of SAFER Patient Flow guidelines, Medworxx CUR assessments ensure:
- Expected Dates of Discharge (EDD) are reviewed daily.
- Patients receive a daily evidence-based clinical review to assess need for current level of care.
- Capability to continuously monitor patients against Readiness for Discharge Criteria to prevent delayed and unsafe discharges and reduce risk of readmission.
The Medworxx SAFER solution introduces a new assessment capability which launches automatically following completion of the daily clinical criteria assessment. This complements CUR by providing a capability to track other SAFER activities, including service delays, to proactively remove potential delays to the patient becoming ready for discharge.
