Delivering Improved Health Care
  • Current work with local trusts around patient documentation – identified skills gaps in staff that allows recording to the required level of precision
  • Some current resistance regarding new IT systems that doesn’t add value to patient care experience – more about MIS
  • Need to help future professionals understand what new information will be able to get from new systems.
  • Products

Penfield Virtual Hospital represents on a computer screen the week in the life in an acute hospital. Penfield is populated with real patients case notes drawn from the InContext project.

The case notes viewed through Penfield Virtual Hospital provide the individual Clinical Context to SNOMED concepts in support of Direct Care. Penfield Virtual Hospital provides the Service Delivery Context to support Indirect Care functions e.g. aggregation functionality, resource management, research, epidemiology, administration and management information etc.

Penfield has its own learning management system that enables multiple choice, list sort and essay type questions to be raised in the context of activity users are currently doing. Multiple choice and list sort questions are graded on submission with immediate feedback given to users.

incontext http incontext intrica net

The InContext web site contains 261 examples of real anonymised patients case notes drawn from a broad range of medical specialities including Med/surgical, Ophthalmic, ENT, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Paediatrics, Mental Health, Learning Difficulties etc.

Case note collection process started in 2004 and continues year on year. Every year new case notes are collected and added to the web site; equal to at least 10% of total stock. In 2009 we aim to collect 26 new case files. This methodology ensures that the case files reflect changes to treatment modalities, drugs etc.

Each year we extend collections into new areas e.g. in 2009 We are extending into primary care areas.

Currently twenty-three UK, three Australian, one New Zealand, three Irish and one south African HE institutions subscribe to the InContext web site contributing 1936 individual registrants.

  • Ethical approval until 2012 for current activity
  • Provides for case based learning
  • Fully transcribed verbatam
  • Many cases have tutor notes, highlighting learning points but also referencing QAA benchmark statements
  • Held in pdf’s and fully bookmarked
  • Incontext site allows users to search for relevant case notes and then download the full pdf’s
  • Can get real care plans, fluid balance sheets, X-Rays, discharge summaries etc

  • Currently 60% of the case notes have a discharge summary based on the UK medical colleges discharge summary template and include full SNOMED codes in the clinical narrative section [and other sections].
  • By April 2009 all case notes will have a completed discharge summary and also an admissions summary based on the UK medical colleges template and fully SNOMED classified.
  • Two sets of case files have been fully mapped to SNOMED codes as exemplars and saved in xml file format.
  • Exploring with clinicians how SNOMED process contributes to Direct Care functions of decision support, documentation, case reporting and case summaries is likely to be a key determinant of a successful uptake.
  • In the absence of this authentic clinical context there is a tendency that SNOMED education and training becomes features led rather than benefits led.

When combined the InContext case materials and Penfield Virtual Hospital provides an in depth patient data base broadly representative of medical specialities that can be exploited to support SNOMED training of clinicians.

university priorities interests
University Priorities & Interests
  • Research
    • Around current practice and issues
    • Around future practice and challenges
  • Education of existing professionals
  • Education of future professionals
  • Accreditation of learning
  • In UK very close relationship with Trusts, interchanges of staff
  • Collaboration globally is increasingly key
  • Research Funding often linked to collaboration models
  • OHT can influence funding opportunities and help facilitate collaborative networks
  • Open curriculum models already developing
  • UK Government pressure to change HE models
what other applications for such data
What other applications for such data?
  • Working with NHS UK on using our case notes to provide real data to help illustrate SNOMED CT usage to supplier base
    • Used that to enhance the discharge notes within Penfield to put SNOMED CT data in front of the professionals we are currently training
  • Approached by one software supplier around extracting data from Penfield to help in testing cycle
  • A wider role for Penfield around educating healthcare professionals in areas of interest for the OHT community ?
  • … ?

Role for HE in OHT???
