Clinical Utilisation review software adopted by Birmingham Community Healthcare
The Oak Group announced today Birmingham Community Healthcare (BCHC) has licensed the Oak Group’s Making Care Appropriate for Patients (MCAP) Clinical Utilisation Review (CUR) tool for deployment across their beds. BCHC have specialist services including inpatient Neuro rehabilitation unit, neuro rehab team and brain injury specialist clinic. BCHC are the Oak Groups first community trust to be using the tool.
Birmingham Better Care commissioned MCAP Clinical Utilisation Review software for use with patients across Birmingham Community Healthcare. The tool will assist hospital staff to apply clinical criteria to determine the appropriate level of care patients should receive; it will also help to demonstrate at which point a patient should be admitted, transferred or discharged from. This new rigorous approach aims to better ensure that patients are treated in the right place and at the right time. Alongside use of the tool at Heart of England foundation trust they hope for a more joined up approach to healthcare.
The goal of the Clinical utilisation review CQUIN is to improve patient flow, enhance quality and ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate clinical settings, freeing up staff time and resources.
“We welcome Birmingham Community Healthcare to our ever growing client community and really look forward to supporting them in their deployment of CUR to reduce inappropriate admissions and length of stay. This is an exciting time for the Oak Group and CUR development in the UK” said Alistair Frost, CEO, The Oak Group.
