Liverpool, UK – 5th June 2013 – Bristol Community Health will be on-hand at the NHSConfederation’s annual conference and exhibition 2013 to discuss their experiences as early adopters of a mobile workflow management solution which aims to help frontline staff spend less time on administration and travel, and more time with patients.

Representatives from the Bristol Community Health social enterprise as well as TotalMobile’s chief executive Colin Reid will be available on stand A14 in the main exhibition hall on 5th – 7th June at the Liverpool ACC, to talk about how the technology solution works, progress so far and the anticipated positive affects this solution will have on the daily routines of healthcare professionals across Bristol in order to release ‘time to care’.

Bristol Community Health, a provider of NHS-funded community healthcare in Bristol and its surrounding areas, has 30,000 interactions with patients every month and is deploying an initial six-month licence for up to 100 staff members, selected from four different teams.

The TotalMobile App Platform will allow healthcare professionals such as community matrons, district nurses, community nurses for older people, healthcare assistants and phlebotomists, working with mobile devices such as tablets, the ability to update patient information and record clinical activities at the point of care.

Zoë Harris, functional lead for mobile working and team manager at Bristol Community Health, who will be present at the event, comments: “Working with TotalMobile has been incredibly easy as they have been efficient and patient from the beginning in discussing our needs. They have worked closely with our frontline clinical staff at every stage to ensure that this product performs exactly how we need it to in order to make our staff’s working lives more efficient.”

“Holding workshops throughout the pilot has allowed us to investigate what TotalMobile can build for us; they have designed specific forms and documents within the product to suit our needs, and have certainly given us their resource and time to ensure that this solution is being rolled out smoothly and effectively.”

The TotalMobile App Platform is an exemplar of the QIPP agenda: it draws information from multiple systems to a mobile device and then stores the data entered by the healthcare professional back to the underlying systems. This ensures a seamless flow of real-time information and better communication throughout the patient journey.

The social enterprise hopes to be able to overcome challenges in connectivity as the solution allows staff to securely login to the application offline, for devices temporarily without a signal, ensuring they are as productive as possible at all times.

There are also a range of security measures in place to not only secure data on mobile devices, but also during transmission to back-office systems, so information such as electronic patient records are never exposed even if a device is stolen.

Bristol Community Health chief executive Julia Clarke, who will also be attending the event, comments: “At Bristol Community Health we’re keen to embrace new ways of working which make us more productive and allows us to spend more time with existing patients and to care for more people. We’re keen advocates of the TotalMobile App Platform; we see mobile working as the ticket to more efficient and flexible community healthcare, as it helps eliminate wasted journeys and allows staff to be more responsive.

“We’ve been working closely with TotalMobile to develop a mobile working solution that provides a tailored, user-friendly interface to the multiple systems we use while also offering the necessary security for patient data.”

Delegates of NHS Confederation Annual Conference and Exhibition 2013 (5th – 7thJune, Liverpool Arena and Convention Centre) are invited to visit the TotalMobile team on stand A14 to discuss and experience first-hand how the TotalMobile App Platform can benefit healthcare providers.
