The Oak Group is a healthcare intelligence service and software product provider offering an ‘Acuity-Based Patient Flow’ Clinical Utilisation Review (CUR) product that delivers significant efficiencies in both patient flow and care. Our data driven approach is what enables us to provide integral information for improving all aspects of patient care. We provide the opportunity to achieve a new level of effectiveness by helping you understand why a patient was not treated at the most appropriate level of care and how to ensure that patients will be treated at the most appropriate level in the future.

Our primary tool is our proprietary MCAP medical software, which aims to boost efficiency, reduce errors and save money where it matters most. MCAP uncovers the blockages to patient flow and reveals the reasons behind them, empowering clinical teams to make the data-driven decisions necessary to fix these issues, improve quality of patient care and re-allocate resources by identifying and reducing inappropriate admissions and delayed discharges. The result is a more efficient system in which more patients can receive a higher standard of care than might otherwise be available. The goal of the MCAP Criteria is not to deny care, but to put people at the right level of care given their individual care needs. This is how we improve patient care.

After more than 15 years of development and refinement by our experts, MCAP is the most accurate and up-to-date CUR tool on the market today. MCAP brings to light the reasons for patient blockages and delays in real-time, giving providers the tools to:

  • Reduce length of stay
  • Improve care coordination
  • Reduce avoidable admissions
  • Reduce A&E wait times
  • Improve quality of care
  • Increase bed turnover
  • Achieve timely discharge
  • Improve patient satisfaction
