What are the advantages of the system?
The main focus of the Simplicity MDT system is to manage the EHRs of patients being discussed at MDT meetings, and record the decisions (or opinions) of the care group, and the actions to be taken. It tracks patient discussions at all MDTs to provide a single well-structured source of information for their journey.
The goal of this system is to improve patient safety and care by reducing clinical and clerical weaknesses in the current systems, ensuring all relevant information is available and accountable (as long as it was recorded in the system).
From a consultant’s point of view, the system should reduce the workload through automation, improving the potential for optimal multidisciplinary collusion, and improving patient care by reducing the potential for error.
This system also provides a mineable database of information, which can be used to, for example, list all patients in the last month for which there was discordance, identifying the number of lesions marked as educational for each consultant, or identify patients suitable for drug trials.
