A unique electronic expert medicines optimisation solution
ExpertCare (hypertension) is a ground-breaking expert software solution designed to simplify complex medicines prescribing using expert algorithms. It automatically provides just-in-time prescribing advice aimed at controlling the patient’s clinical measurements to an appropriate target while achieving conformance with treatments recommended by best evidence medicine guidance for the management of relevant comorbidities.
A tool designed to deal with hypertension and multimorbidity
Efficient Hypertension Management is one of the greatest healthcare challenges today.
Hypertension is the leading preventable cause of premature death worldwide. Two-thirds of people with multimorbidity are hypertensive and treating them is often complicated. Different conditions and treatments may interact in complicated ways and cause negative impacts. ExpertCare reduces the risk of avoidable medicines-related consequences. In England alone, a reduction in avoidable medicines-related admissions could save the NHS nearly two million hospital bed days and up to £530 million per year.
A medicine review in under 5 minutes – saving time, money and lives
ExpertCare enables health professionals to significantly improve practice productivity. Doctors and nurses can now complete an authoritative patient-centred medicine review in under 5-minutes. Our integrated version automatically extracts patient demographics, conditions and current medication directly from the GP clinical system or EHR and uses the data to drive the solution’s algorithmic engine. The solution’s intelligence engine instantaneously considers 70 different conditions, 720 comorbidity combinations, 40 000 age and ethnicity combinations and adverse drug reactions.
Sharing the load – empowering nurses and healthcare assistants
Across the UK, practices are struggling to cope with workload and according to research, long-term conditions account for 50 percent of all GP appointments. Multimorbidity and polypharmacy increase clinical workload, so doctors, nurses and pharmacists need to work coherently as a team. ExpertCare lightens the load by freeing-up GP time. The tool empowers practice nurses, healthcare assistants and pharmacists to manage the long-term care of all hypertensive patients, even the more complex clinical cases.
Safe hands – clinically assured and always up-to-date
ExpertCare is clinically assured by a team of highly experienced full-time clinicians (general practitioners and pharmacists). Their deep clinical insights and production efforts – governed by stringent NHS-audited clinical safety protocols and internal oversight – come together to make ExpertCare both functional and clinically safe.
Ensuring the right patients get the right choice of medicine, at the right time
Prescribing errors in general practices are an important and expensive preventable cause of illness, hospitalisation and deaths. In England alone, a reduction in avoidable medicines-related admissions could save the NHS nearly two million hospital bed days and up to £530 million per year.
ExpertCare ensures that busy healthcare professionals prescribe the most cost effective treatment ensuring safety at all times.
