Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) are well placed to positively influence public health in the UK: millions of client/patient interactions per week, working across primary, secondary, social care and the voluntary and education sectors and implementing treatments which develop ongoing relationships with patients.
As a result, the way in which Physiotherapy and other AHP services are being delivered are undergoing important and exciting changes which are leading to whole system improvements across the NHS.
DynamicHealth providing NHS physiotherapy and specialist services across Cambridgeshire and Peterborough is at the forefront of this transformation. Increasingly its therapists are being deployed away from centralised hospital departments into community clinics adding to the skill-mix of the primary care workforce where 18-33% of general practice workload is diagnosis and treatment of conditions and symptoms which are musculoskeletal in nature.
To accommodate the growth in demand for services and reduce the dependence upon back-office support, Sarah Saul, Service Manager, DynamicHealth chose investments in technology including Dragon Medical front-end speech recognition to help maximise front-line services and reduce/release administration backlogs and workload.
“Physiotherapy and other Allied Health Professional services are undergoing exciting changes leading to whole system improvements in the NHS. Dragon Medical integrated into our clinical documentation delivers efficiencies that support that change and our growth”
