e-Consultations (Patient/Service User to Professional), 1.0.1

Enables Patients/Service Users to access support from Health and Care Professionals, across a range of settings, without the need for a face to face encounter.
How this capability was met
Capabilities are a set of requirements that are defined using short descriptions called epics. Capabilities are achieved when a Catalogue Solution meets the required epics.
There are two types of epic: must and may. Some capabilities require the Catalogue Solution to meet all of the must epics, some require only one must epic to be met. May epics are optional.
This Catalogue Solution has achieved the following:
Must epics

Must epics that have been met

  • Patient/Service User requests support (C28E1)
  • Respond to request for support from Patient/Service User (C28E2)
May epics

May epics that have been met

  • Self-help and signposting (C28E5)

May epics that have not been met

  • Patient/Service User makes administrative request (C28E3)
  • Link requests and responses to Patient/Service User Record (C28E4)
  • Live Consultation: Patient/Service User and Health and Care Professionals (C28E6)
  • Group e-Consultations (C28E7)
  • Reports (C28E8)

Implementation timescales

These are the typical processes and timescales to implement this Catalogue Solution:
Our accelerated mobilisation process involves a deployment window of one week per practice for video consultation. The system, co-designed with end users and the digital health team at Lincolnshire STP, is intuitive, adopting a ‘plug-and-play’ approach. • For the Covid-19 response, we have moved to a video-led training model, with daily ‘drop in’ webinar sessions for Q&A with the Named Contact. • Named Contact initially gets in touch, sets up Key Users, and gives access to our training area (Training Videos and handbooks), and confirms technical setup using our automated test page. Drop in sessions are provided daily for that week for Q&A. • Implementation is supported with our Live Chat functionality (also has dynamic content access) for all users of the system (clinicians, receptionists, patients) 8am-8pm 7 days per week. This has excellent feedback for responsiveness and interactive troubleshooting.
