Smart health tech company Alcidion has launched Miya Precision technology for the NHS in order to alleviate the pressure faced by healthcare professional.
WHY IT MATTERS
The new platform aims to provide hospitals and regions with a way to move beyond static electronic record systems to technology that engages healthcare professionals.
Miya Precision will integrate information from the NHS trusts current systems and use it to automate routine tasks, care plans and pathways and combine existing data with clinical decision support.
The system will also allow hospitals to realise clinical workflow benefits from clinical noting, natural language processing, electronic observations, electronic prescribing, flow management and mobility.
THE LARGER TREND
Miya Precision has seen early adoption in the NHS following successful use by organisations in other parts of the world.
Dartford and Gravesham NHS trust is the first in the UK to sign up to Miya Precision.
In August, Alcidion was appointed to the NHSX clinical communications procurement framework, a new system intended to help the NHS phase out pagers by the end of next year.
ON THE RECORD
Neil Perry, director of digital transformation at the trust, said: “Miya Precision sits at the centre of our digital strategy. It provides a catalyst for us to harness digital technology in ways that allow our clinical staff to make informed decisions more easily, whilst focussing their time and efforts on delivering the best possible patient care and clinical outcomes.
“It is providing us with a new platform to become digitally mature, whilst leveraging artificial intelligence, natural language processing and many other advanced technologies. I look forward to sharing our approach with more hospitals considering this option.”
Lynette Ousby, general manager for Alcidion in the UK, said: “We want to give the NHS a new option when it comes to technology that makes a difference to the way clinicians work. Miya Precision will automate care plans and pathways whilst relieving the cognitive burden still faced by healthcare professionals who very often still need to spend hours each day remembering to carry out hundreds of routine tasks.”
