  • Competition one year on: how is it affecting the NHS? Recorded: Mar 26 2014 44 mins
    Dame Gill Morgan, chair of the Foundation Trust Network
    One year after the Health and Social Care Act became law what has been the impact of the new competition framework – and how can NHS organisations comply with the law while also pursuing their aim of providing high quality care in a way which is both affordable and sustainable?

    This free webinar, in association with specialist healthcare law firm Hempsons, will look at the key issues for NHS and foundation trusts, and how they can comply with the law while still achieving their aims of creating sustainable and financially sound organisations.

    It will look at options trusts could consider such as provider collaborations, hospital chains and mergers, as well as the need to comply with competition law and the provider licence competition conditions.

    It will consider the role of commissioners in service and organisational change, and how organisations can best engage with Monitor and the Competition and Markets Authority, which will replace the OFT and Competition Commission on April 1. Viewers will get the chance to pose questions to our expert panel.

  • Balancing clinical efficacy of treatments with quality of life Recorded: Nov 27 2013 53 mins
    Professor Arnie Purushotham, director of King's Health Partners Cancer Centre
    While a doctor or researcher might consider the best drug to be one which offers a 100 per cent certainty of cure, can the same be said of the patient? With Patient Recorded Outcome Measures (PROMs) and patient experience ever more important ways of measuring the quality of care, it could be argued that pharmaceutical firms will need to increasingly focus on drugs which improve the patient’s life rather while attempting to cure their condition.

    This HSJ webinar, run in association with Norgine, will explore the complex issue of balancing clinical efficacy of treatments with quality of life for patients. They are issues which might be considered particularly pertinent when it comes to cancer treatments. Researchers continue to search for a cure, but were that cure to involve unpleasant side effects – as chemotherapy and radiotherapy often currently do – would patients want it? Would they prefer a treatment which offered an 80 per cent certainty of cure but involved no side effects at all?

    Specific areas for discussion will include:
    • How can we decide where the balance should lie between clinical efficacy and quality of life?
    • How can we ensure that patients are sufficiently involved in the development of medications,
    and in health research and development more generally?
    • Will Academic Health Science Centres and Networks make a difference in this area?

    Daloni Carlisle, Dr Mike Fisher, Dr John Halamka, Dr Denise Basow
    HSJ invites you to register to view and participate in a free webinar to explore the patient safety benefits of clinical decision support

    The Francis Report has sharpened the focus on patient safety. There is a body of evidence to demonstrate that using information technology to provide clinicians with real time access to the most up-to-date evidence, guidance and protocols can significantly improve patient safety. This evidence base is international, coming from the US, Asia and Europe. So far, the NHS experience with CDS is under researched; yet never has there been a more pressing case to roll them out quickly.

    This HSJ webinar, sponsored by UpToDate, brings together an international panel of medical experts to offer their perspectives and answer your questions.

    Key elements will include:
    •What is the evidence for clinical decision support improving patient safety?
    •Where in hospitals does it show greatest benefits?
    •How well accepted and understood is the evidence base?
    •What is the demand from clinicians for CDS?
    •Is there a one-size-fits-all solution available?
    •Do you need an electronic patient record to reap the benefits from CDS?

    Speakers include:

    Dr Mike Fisher
    Consultant Cardiologist
    Chief Clinical Information Officer Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals

    Dr John Halamka
    Chief Medical Information Officer
    Beth Israel Deaconess Hospital

  • The challenges of introducing new medicines to the NHS Recorded: May 7 2013 42 mins
    Dr Anthony Brzezicki, Dr Joseph Mills
    Right patient, right treatment, right price: the challenges of introducing new medicines to the NHS

    The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) regularly reviews new drugs which may benefit patients. When it issues guidance recommending a specific treatment, the NHS is required to provide funding for it within three months. Yet the implementation and adoption of new medications is often slow, primarily due to the complexities of discussions between clinicians and commissioners.

    With clinical needs having to be balanced with ever-tighter budgets - and the responsibility for commissioning moving to clinical leads at CCGs - those conversations are liable to become even more complex in the next 12 months.

    This HSJ webinar, organised and funded by AstraZeneca, will bring together Dr Anthony Brzezicki, GP and chair of Croydon clinical commissioning group and Dr Joseph Mills, Consultant Cardiologist, Liverpool, to consider these challenging issues. The debate will draw on the specific example of ticagrelor, approved by the European Commission in late 2010 and recommended by NICE a year later, with varied use across the UK.

    Key elements of the webinar will include:
    *How should commissioners and clinicians plan for the implementation of a new medicine?
    *When should planning for a new medicine begin?
    *What evidence do commissioners and clinicians need when they are considering a new medicine?
    *Have the changes in NHS commissioning had an impact on the planning for new medicines?
    *How is the commissioning of primary and secondary preventative strategies balanced?
    *How can cost effectiveness be balanced with clinical need?

    The Nuffield Trust has been commissioned by the Secretary of State for Health to consider whether aggregate ratings of provider performance should be used in health and social care. This webinar will discuss emerging evidence, challenges/benefits and diverse views from heath, social care and beyond around introducing aggregated ratings to the NHS and social care. The final Nuffield report will be presented to the Secretary of State in March 2013.
  • Can clinical decision support technology help hospitals deliver their QIPP goals Recorded: Dec 12 2012 50 mins
    Alastair Mclellan, Dr Rhidian Bramley, Dr Denise Basow, John Addison
    Achieving better care at lower cost is the 'sweet spot' for managers trying to deliver their QIPP programmes.

    But doing this requires the active involvement of clinicians and an appreciation of some of the challenges they face in their working lives.

    With the ever-growing volume of medical research and guidance it can be hard for even the most senior doctors to stay on top of their specialism and take every possible factor into account. And for juniors it can be more than a little daunting - especially when senior staff are thin on the ground, such as at night.

    Offering them support in providing appropriate and safe care is a priority for many trusts - and software designed to help them in deciding on diagnosis and best treatment is one way to do it.
    There is a growing body of evidence that this can reduce unnecessary tests, speed up diagnosis and treatment, and can avoid harm to patients.

    This free HSJ webinar will look at the impact clinical decision support software can have in hospitals, featuring real-world examples and cases

    It will cover:

    How decision support software can support trusts in delivering some of their QIPP goals through better and more timely care

    The evidence case for using clinical decision support software in clinical practice and how it can contribute to reducing unnecessary diagnostic tests, help clinicians deliver the right care, first time, and lead to reduced lengths of stay

    The role it can play in helping doctors – especially juniors - ‘on the ground’

    How doctors in the North West have seen positive outcomes from using support software

    How to build a business case for investment in clinical support software

    Who should watch?


    Clinical and Medical Directors
    Chief Executives
    Finance Directors
    Managers with responsibility for QIPP programmes
    Healthcare IT Managers


    This webinar will only be available to registered HSJ TV users through the HSJTV stream, so make sure you register today.
  • Adopting Clinical Decision Support Systems UK experience Demonstrates Recorded: Jun 13 2012 54 mins
    Dr Peter Bonis, Jan ten Sythoff, Dr Peter William, Jane Surtees.
    HSJ invites you to view and participate in an exclusive webinar on the growing importance of clinical decision support systems in association with UpToDate.

    Quality, cost and the rise in long term conditions are forcing all healthcare providers around the world to reassess how services can be delivered more efficiently and effectively. Most have concluded that whilst technology is not the only answer, it is invariably part of the solution.

    One key area is becoming increasingly clear – clinical support systems. Whilst healthcare provision has always striven to deliver the right care at the right time, it is now more crucial than ever that the clinical decision making process results in the best outcome for the patient in the shortest possible timescale.

    In addition, recent changes to the regulatory environment (such as non-payment for patient readmission within 30 days of treatment) look set to increase the pressure even further.

    Some of the key questions our webinar will explore include:
    - The economic impact of adopting clinical decision support systems.

    -Can clinical decision support systems contribute to reduced complications, length of stay and re-admission rates?

    -How can IT-enabled clinical support systems work to improve patient care?

    -Who is currently using clinical decision support systems and how are they measuring outcomes?

    -In what ways can the health service use technology to transform patient management?

    -Do clinical decision support systems really change clinical decision-making?

  • The path to best practice Recorded: Oct 8 2010 24 mins
    David Beeson
    In his second webcast on healthcare information, David Beeson looks at how linking information from multiple sources allows us to build pathways representing the care delivered to patients. Pathways can be be compared to protocols, to ensure that the right things are being done, at the right time, to treat the patient's condition. The aim is to bring real performance into line with best practice.

    Ultimately, such pathways should extend across entire health economies, but for now it would be a major improvement to be able to follow them even within individual Acute or Mental Health hospitals.
