Technology Supported Transformation in Health
Visiting Services


Coleen Milligan


National Clinical Implementation Lead


What Will Success Look Like?


Parents will have access to their child’s health records electronically;


Families will be able to access electronic advice, education and support;


Health Visitors will have mobile technology to improve access, quality and
productivity;


Mobile technology will enable information to be available at the point of
service delivery and electronic capture of information will be the norm;


Once recorded, data will be available for numerous purposes e.g.
commissioning including contracting and performance, reducing double entry
and transcription errors;


Information collected will also support delivery of QIPP, education, research,
public health interventions, clinical audit and demonstration of clinical
outcomes.; and


Robust sharing of information arrangements will be in place between agencies
to facilitate ‘joined up’ services for families’ at all levels of the service model

What Would Good Look Like:

Antenatal Visit



The antenatal visit had been scheduled using a rostering tool, booked
electronically with parents and a text reminder sent.


In the home the Health Visitor accesses the maternity record and birth plan using
laptop, and discusses with the parents. They discuss mother’s intention to breast
feed and HV identifies local breast feeding support groups for parents.


The HV demonstrates to parents validated information web sites for parenting
advice and information and introduces virtual community sites such as
Netmums/Mumsnet etc


The Health Visitor shows the parents the local HV service offer on local website
and talks about what will happen once midwife discharges mother (using the
electronic professional pathway). She leaves contact details including an email
address for parents to contact for further questions and advice


Information about the antenatal visit, including information on outcomes is
recorded electronically in the clinical family record.


Information from the clinical record is available to the organisation to report on
activity and performance.






Health visiting team has been alerted to review due by routine reporting from Systmone via
the waiting list function linked to HV team availability via Outlook. Once an appointment had
been identified an invitation letter was emailed/texted to the family and a reminder text was
sent just before the appointment. This helps keep the DNA rates down and makes better use
of clinical time.


As local services are working towards integrated health and foundation years review at 2 the
family are seen at the Children’s Centre. The child’s record is be accessed via a mobile device
and information from the review entered directly into the clinical record at the point of
service delivery. This information is only entered once but then is shared as appropriate


When the child and parent/carer come for their appointment, the review is carried out using
the electronic Ages and Stages assessment. Online resources Websites, apps. teaching videos
are used during the review to assist parents where necessary. Information for the parent is
recorded in the Electronic Red Book. E customer feedback is encouraged which is recorded
once and available for instant analysis.


In addition to the clinical information the time it took to do the review, travel time, any
referrals required etc is also entered. This allows reports to be created from the ‘rich’
information in the clinical information system.


The final task is to remove the child from the 2.5 year list and place him/her on the
appropriate list for the next review

What Would Good Look Like: Health Visiting
Healthy Child Programme Service Planning And
Delivery




The Health Visiting team have contributed to the JSNA. They are now using this and
other public health data and local community information to identify priorities for
action to improve health outcomes/reduce inequalities in the local community


The identifies one local estate as an outlier for high incidence and admission for
childhood home accidents. This is confirmed by the paediatric liaison service


A health improvement group is formed within the local community with
representatives from the health service, children’s centre,, fire service and schools
and all information available is pooled and shared electronically. This enables a
shared action plan to be agreed which includes


Virtual home tour to identify where safety equipment is needed


Email/text address is created for families to loan or purchase equipment


Information regarding fire safety / free smoke alarm is made available on a app for
mobile phones


App for first aid in the home is developed and made freely available


Families informed of local child care programmes by text reminders


Joint outcomes for the action plan agreed with the community and monitored


Benefits For Staff



Agile working


Reduction in travel


Increased productivity


Electronic diary


Access to decision making support tools


Instant messaging to colleagues and GPs


Secure transfer of information (NHS Mail)


Real time action


sent a change of new born baby’s name to Child Health
Team during consultation with mum


Access and use of standardised care plans e.g. Nursery Nurses using a
standard template for behaviour management


Ability to access real time information and run reports


On line access to organisation policies and procedures

Benefits For Staff Will Lead To
:


Improved satisfaction / morale due to improved efficiency


Ability to be flexible in where they start and finish the working
day


Once only data entry


Ability to make referrals and appointments at point of service
delivery


More effective use of clinical time


Ability to use on line educational tools and programmes
