Shout out to our friends … Health Technology News Paper, your daily dose of information for the health technology community

 

Despite being so ubiquitous and groundbreaking in its time, this is a medium that is almost universally loathed…

 

Today we’re talking about email...

 

We have a complex love-hate relationship with email… Mostly we hate it...

 

As a clinician email can be particularly frustrating. We have so many ways to receive information tasks and work. And we spend most of our dealing with patients or tasks directly related to patient care. It can feel like Other people working in primary care have more time allocated for purely administrative activities like reading email… 

 

It is definitely worth giving how you manage email some thought...

 

Why is email frustrating?... (Identifying the challenges)

 

Email overload

 

Time issue, can take so long, when do i do it?

Email anxiety - what’s in my inbox?...

Discussion vs response - wrong tool?

Etiquette - why am i getting this email? Tone and controversial topics...

Emails at intrusive at times

 

What are the possible solutions?

 

Basic Principals… Three Ps

Parkinson’s Law - allocate set, limited time - batching

Pareto Principal - 80/20 - concentrate on where your efforts will have impact

Pomedoro - 25 minute dashes, 5 minutes break to complete email or tasks

 

Getting Organised

Inbox Zero & Getting to Done…. 

2 min rule

Scheduling for later

Tag, Folders or archive and search?

 

Check out Gandhi’s episode on productivity: https://youtu.be/paTZy7K8hsU

 

Etiquette

Should this be an email at all? email / phone / meet

reply all, waiting on replies, cc, bcc

Font and confidentiality

Emojis in professional emails

Use the right address for the right reason - security log in

Add the email address last - just in case

Identify action or information

Use the subject line well… and first 2 lines - Project management style - timelines

Templates and signatures, 

 

Dealing with volume/overload

Unsubscribe and whitelist vs junk

Do not disturb

 

Choose your tools wisely? But don’t obsess 

We discuss our current email setups and tips for email platforms and apps

Interface/platform - bluemail 

What do you use?

Gandhi - blue mail and Gmail

Andy - outlook

But my phone is always with me… Do not disturb mode

Switch off the notification?

 

How to email patients: Email use by practices in General Practice

 

Email audit

Set aside a time frame to do an email audit - sources, folders, and freq - put it in your calendar!!!

 

Things to think about as clinicians…

Use the right platform or email address for any clinical or sensitive information.

Secure your device.

 

Alternatives?

People are trying to make email better

Slack, Asana…. Adding project management and team coordination

 

So how do you feel about email now love or hate? 

 

Let us know...

Wearable technology in General Practice

Wearable technology in General Practice

October 25, 2019

How will wearables change General Practice? Watch as Andy and Gandhi of the eGPlearning Podblast explore the world of wearable technology for general practice

🔴 Subscribe: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningYTsubscribe 🔴

Wearable Technology for General Practice - eGPlearning PodBlast Show Notes

Wearable health technology, is it all hype?

We discuss our experience with wearable technology in our day to lives as GPs. How patients and health professionals are beginning to use devices such as smart-watches and fitness trackers, the impact on Primary Care and how this class of device might develop in the future.

What have we been up to?
Andy - Beginning to work as a Primary Care Network Clinical Director and promoting the Nottingham Based Digital GP Fellowship
Gandhi - Attending a number of conferences, working on the eGPlearning platform

Gandhi has featured in an episode of AskPat, the hugely popular Podcast from @PatFlyn. Listen here 

A word from our partners - HTN
HTN The health tech news paper - an innovative daily news and opinion website for the health tech network
HTN Health Tech award winner revealed - go have a look!
https://www.thehtn.co.uk/2019/10/04/htn-awards-2019-winners-revealed/

What is wearable health tech?
What is wearable health technology
No real definition...
We have always had wearable health tech - hearing aids, early insulin pumps, overnight pulse oximetry...
Previously been expensive, but now rapidly developing areas as smartphones, and later health tracking industries have created a volume market for sensors, processors, wireless communication chips/tech. Meaningful wearable health technology is now cheaper to produce and develop.

What does wearable tech do?
Capture information
Tracking vital signs and observations
Monitoring for events such as falls & fits
Movement and activity
Treatment compliance - activity, physio, medication adherence
Body-worn biochemical sensors - e.g. glucose, ECG

Use the data
Identify unrecognised events or track vitals during an event - eg. palpitations - For a good example see Kardia:
Monitor disease activity - eg. diabetes
Make sense of larger data sets for meaningful health insights

Intervene
Suggest and administer medication such as insulin
Alert family or paramedics to intervene - e.g. fall

What do we think about Wearable Health Technology?
Andy discusses his experiences with the AppleWatch platform.
AppleWatch on Amazon - 

Gandhi discusses experiences with:
Fitbit - Good brand, reliable, fits well, great metrics, less smartwatch that tracker - universal platforms

LetsCom  fitness trackers - Pros- cost, battery life, simplicity, rugged. Cons- function, basic

Gandhi is also a fan of those devices with the tracking capabilities of fitness trackers but the appearance of a normal watch such as the Muse and Withings ranges.
https://www.musewearables.com/
https://www.withings.com/uk/

We discuss our thoughts on the current situation with wearables and the future… Including...
It would be great if/when apps available to make sense of the data - perhaps integrating with my health record…
But, sometimes I want to wear a different watch… Perhaps seen only as a health/comms device...
Will those who need it want to use it - Grandads and hearing aides…
Are they just for exercise and fitness?
Security & privacy concerns?
Apple vs Google - will there be a small number of dominant players due to platform effects?

Ultimately we believe there is lots of health potential in the future...
Huge potential…
Because getting cheap...
Platforms for sharing data are maturing - Apple Health, Google Health, NHS App
Perhaps we will reach a critical mass in the near future and use will explode.

Thanks for listening

What do you think? Will wearables be a help or hindrance to Primary Care?

What equipment to take to a GP conference

What equipment to take to a GP conference

October 17, 2019

Imagine going to a conference to learn and having everything you need. In this episode I cover what I take to a conference to help my learning and comfort. Do you agree?

🔴 Subscribe: https://bit.ly/eGPlearningYTsubscribe 🔴

I recently got asked what equipment I need at a conference. in this episode, shot at the Best practice Conference 2019 in Birmingham, I look at the various different ways you can use equipment to help with your learning or simply make attending a conference comfortable. I also look at the type of tech you may need if you are attending as a presenter at a conference.

00:47 Plan your objectives- look at the agenda and plan the sessions you want to attend
01:25 Smartphone yourself- the essential tech piece anyone should have (if recording do not forget your microphone…..like my Boya M1
01:55 Battery pack - 10000 amp should be more than enough 
02:32 universal charger cable - multiple heads are better than one.
03:14 compact charger plug 
03:37 an effective bag - especially to carry all your kit and some space for extra items- 
04:07 water bottle and healthy snacks

4:45 laptop or tablet: I use the Microsoft surface pro 6 
05:25 mini display port - an essential if you are delivering a presentation: 
06:10 Pen and paper - Dingbat notebook  and Frixion pen 
06:50 headphones and external Seagate USB hard drive 

What equipment do you take, comment on any of the eGPlearning platforms.

August 15, 2019

Video consultations are the new buzz in primary care and a mandated part of the new contract from April 2020.

GPs and clinicians love evidence to justify the use of any service and in this post, I cover the evidence for video consultations in-depth with Prof Helen Atherton of the Academic unit of primary care at Warwick Medical School.

💻 What is digital exceptionalism and why it has an impact- should it?
💻 The type of patients that will use video consultations.
💻 The use of funding for video consultations like the Access funds and Priminister Challenge funds
💻 We discuss the work of Trisha Greenhalgh
💻 Comparison of telephone vs F2F consultations and what gaps video can fill
💻 The ViCo study:
🖥Done in 2016 as a feasibility study

🖥 Advantages for video use with remote working, convenience, and visual element
🖥 Suitable only where a physical exam may not be needed
🖥 Technical issues need addressing

To obtain healthcare from an NHS GP (General Practitioner) you need to be registered with a practice. In this post learn how you can register with your local GP.

 

 

Registering with your local GP surgery is an easy process, but there are some considerations to make. Listen below to hear how, or watch the video at the end of this post to see more. In summary:

 

By paper:

 

You need a GMS 1 form. You can obtain this from your practice, or download from the nhs.uk site here. An example is below:

 

GMS 1 form front

 

When completing the form, complete all relevant sections on the first page:

 

  • Your details - needed to register you
  • Details of your previous practice or address- to track your records quickly
  • If you are eligible for veteran care as part of the armed forces.
  • If you are registering your child- if you need ongoing child health surveillance care (under 5's).
  • If you need the use of dispensing service ( where the practice provides your physical prescription instead of a local pharmacy). This is more common for rural practices.
  • Opting in/out of organ and blood donation services.

 

The top of the back of the GMS 1 form is completed by the practice (not the patient).

 

The final section on the back is relevant if you are an ordinary resident (normally living abroad or visiting England) to confirm the level of care you may receive.

 

Other ways to fill the form are to access it via your practice website.

 

Reasons a practice may not register you:

 

Sometimes a practice may not be able to register you. This would be if :

 

  • the practice list is closed to new patients
  • if you are outside of the registered practice area
  • if you have previously been removed from a practice list (certain situations and rare).

 

You may be asked to provide photographic ID or proof of address. This is not compulsory but recommended as it can help speed up the registration process. This includes:

 

  • passport
  • driving licence
  • residence permit
  • ARC card
  • utility bill

 

Also, providing a copy of your repeat medications can make a new registration easier.

 

The GMS 1 form is different from the temporary registration form and provides a different service.

 

To find which practices you can register with ask local residents, community leaders, housing support teams or use the nhs.uk website here.

 

NHS App

 

You can register via the NHS app.

 

This is the gateway to health services and enables you to register with a practice quickly via your smartphone device.

 

The NHS app also allows you to:

 

  • book an appointment at your local practice
  • order your regular (repeat) medications
  • look at your medical records
  • use a symptom checker
  • search health condition information from the nhs.uk website
  • confirm your organ and blood donation choices

 

Further functionality is due in the next few years and some areas may have extra services.

 

Other apps

 

Other companies can provide you with health care via an app system. Companies like Babylon,(including their GP at Hand system), Push Doctor, QDoctor and Livi all use apps to register patients. Some claims that you can be registered and see a patient within 10 minutes.

 

 

Further guidance on how to register with your local GP can be found on the nhs.uk website here.
