Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Acute Transport Service (CATS) has deployed real-time data-sharing technology to enable ambulance teams to share vital data with remote doctors.

Through its ability to monitor the child’s journey to hospital Kinseed’s SwiftCare digital transformation suite is enabling a significant reduction in handover time.

Since implemention, the Great Ormond Street Hospital CATS team has conducted over 3,000 remotely-monitored journeys and seen handover times reduced by 30-90 minutes.

Using the technology, remote experts and consultants can provide their valuable clinical expertise to patients in transit, and real-time data is collected helping to monitor patients and improve patient safety.

In addition, Kinseed is improving and expanding the real-time distribution capabilities of its SwiftCare digital transformation suite, thanks to Solace’s event streaming and management solution, PubSub+ Platform.

Bob Hundal, CTO at Kinseed, said: “We know that for SwiftCare to be a truly transformative platform for healthcare providers, it needs to be powered by reliable, real-time data streams from a wide variety of sources like EHRs, clinical devices, as well as modern cloud services.

“Solace is the gold standard for moving critical data between diverse applications and devices in real-time, so bolstering our cloud platform with their cloud event streaming and event management services was a perfect fit. This partnership accelerates our mission of connecting the disconnected.”

The partnership between Kinseed and Solace is improving patient care by powering cloud tools to help healthcare providers work with patients, data and resources without the need for heavy coding or expensive consultancy feed. Solace uses event-driven architecture to improve real-time data distribution capabilities.

Last summer Great Ormond Street Hospital partnered with The Royal Marsden, to share its digital excellence and learning made through its digital health record (DHR) implementation, as The Royal Marsden looked to deploy a new DHR.
