Ardentia Launches Updated Pathway Manager Solution to Address Latest RTT 18-Week Wait Reporting Requirements

Press release from: Ardentia

/ PR Agency: Context
Healthcare intelligence specialist Ardentia has launched an updated version of its Pathway Manager solution, enabling Trusts to easily and effectively meet 18-week wait Referral to Treatment reporting requirements.

Ardentia has worked closely with Trusts across England and Wales to develop Pathway Manager version 2, with enhanced reporting functionality designed to simplify the monitoring and management of referral to treatment (RTT) times for clinicians and managers ahead of the December 2008 deadline.

By streamlining the tasks involved in managing RTT requirements, from the build and analysis of pathways to collating information and producing statutory reports, Pathway Manager version 2 liberates valuable resources, enabling internal staff to focus in improving outcomes and optimising care delivery.

According to David Beeson, development director at Ardentia: “In-house RTT monitoring solutions can all-too-often swallow up so much resource in building reports and collating information that staff cannot actually get on with the job of managing pathways and improving performance.

“Pathway Manager, with its enhanced functionality to meet everyday issues and operational requirements, frees up staff time and lets them get on with the important task of helping to manage care delivery and improve overall healthcare outcomes.”

The enhanced functionality enables users to report on the RTT position of groups of patients, for example all patients attending a specific surgery or clinic, so that clinicians and manager can establish where all patients are on their individual pathways prior to consultation.

Pathway Manager version 2 also addresses some of the common issues faced by Trusts when reporting on patient pathways. It enables staff to enter Clock Stop information not appearing in standard data sets and allows for the special handling of patients discharged with no procedure carried out, for more accurate reporting and a more complete picture of the quality of healthcare delivery.

The solution can report on transfers in and out, and the effect this can have on pathways. Patients may be transferred in with little time left on their 18-week clock, and so it is important that Trusts can quickly access this information, in order to avoid a breach or alert commissioners if a breach proves unavoidable.

Developed with support from Microsoft, Pathway Manager manages patient pathways from initial GP contact to acute or other hospital treatment, to ensure compliance with the 18-week wait rules. Powerful functionality supports routine reporting and ad-hoc query reporting at patient, pathway and event level, enabling Trusts to meet national reporting requirements and also to drill down and investigate wider issues relating to patient pathways in greater detail.
