General Practice, Technology and the Virus – Reflections

General Practice, Technology and the Virus – Reflections

July 25, 2020

In the is episode, Dr Andy Foster reflects on the last 5 months of the pandemic and how General Practice in the UK has coped with the Challenge of the Virus. In particular how technology has helped.

 

This is a reflective episode and revisits many of the themes covered in depth on eGPLearning over the last 6 months, providing a good overview or introduction to this topic.

 

The slides were prepared ahead of a presentation to Bristol Medical Technology Society, but we felt the reflections were worth sharing with the medical technology community.

Personality Typing in General Practice

Personality Typing in General Practice

July 11, 2020

In this episode Dr Andy Foster talks about personality typing and how it can be useful to help teams and individuals work more effectively together in organisations. The focus is on healthcare organisations and UK General Practice, but the video should be useful to anyone looking for a way to introduce a group of people to MBTi. 

The focus is on the Myers Briggs Type Indicator system. 

In this video you will learn (or be reminded) about: 

  • Why investing in EQ and Soft skills are important 
  • How to interpret a Myers Briggs profile 
  • Why this might be useful in your organisation 
  • Personal Development 
  • Managing and developing teams 
  • Conflict resolution and prevention 

The video is structured around a teaching session that was delivered at my practice to demonstrate how you could do something similar at your organisation.

Whilst we waiting for Gandhi let’s look at a story in the news….

 

“NHS Strikes deal for Microsoft365 digital tools”

 

http://www.thehtn.co.uk/2020/06/15/nh...

https://digital.nhs.uk/services/micro...

https://news.microsoft.com/en-gb/2020...

 

NHSX/Digital agreed on a deal to deploy M365 tools across the NHS

 

Agreement runs 15 June 2020 to April 2023

 

Includes MS Teams - initially limited to 3m from March

Good news as some organisations and groups were holding off investing time in teams, as access could have been time-limited

 

Narrative from Matt Hancock and government is that

they are making most up to date digital tools available to NHS

Acknowledging innovation during COVID19

Getting the basics right.

Providing Tools for productivity, COLLABORATION and…

Cyber security right

 

This news is welcome and a real improvement

After using windows xp (released 2001) and IE7 (released 2006) until about 3 years ago

… and the lapsing of security updates around the time of cyber attack…

 

Includes...

Office 365 for Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Email and Teams

Windows 10 & security features

 

“Significant cost savings” - But how much?

Why am I excited by this…

I’m a big fan of office 365 and have a subscription

Previously Google Drive

Office applications are more mature

better compatibility

more storage on 1 drive - 1TB! Vs 15GB with google

Creates a network effect… value of a product or service increases the more people use it - like Facebook / twitter etc.

Great for collaboration - particularly Teams

A chat, projectmanagement, document sharing, video meeting/consultation tool that is suitable for sharing patient identifiable data

THAT ALL OTHER NHS ORGANISATIONS WILL ALSO BE COMFORTABLE USING (and committed to using as it will be staying around) - will be a game-changer for cross-organisation meetings and virtual MDTs.

 

Bad news for Zoom?

 

Any downsides?

LOCK-IN… So much value might be created by what the NHS builds on the platform, that it would be difficult for the NHS to function without the platform or to migrate to another that we become LOCKED IN… And Microsoft can up the cost considerably in a few years… as cost of leaving will be too great.

But I’m sure NHSDigital have thought of that right?

Squeeze out, other innovators?

Gandhi ready to Join from RCGP Council virtual meeting?

 

How is the council working out as a virtual meeting?

Platform?

How many people?

How is it compared to the usual council meeting?

How well do you think RCGP coped and responded to COVID?

RCA?

Support for public and profession in the media?

What role does RCGP have in adoption of technology by the profession?

Does it have a tech strategy?

How well do you think it is doing in this regard?

Analogue tips for surviving digital overload

May 2, 2020

Today Dr Andy Foster talks about his three top tips and principals to help people manage their COVID crisis induced digital overload.

This is a bit of a change of pace from our usual content… but maybe we all need think about how we are using technology from time to time.

Understanding the hype cycle for primary care technology

Understanding the hype cycle for primary care technology

March 21, 2020

Today will talk about the hype cycle for primary care

What is the hype cycle?

  • A graphical representation of the maturity and adoption of trends or technologies
  • Model developed by Gartner https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gartner a US research and advisory firm. It is branded, they sell reports and analysis to industry. Thanks for the concept Gartner. 

Why might this be useful?

  • Useful as a way of conceptualising 
    • How technologies go through the journey from discovery to mainstream use
    • Recognising that hype does not always equate to real utility
    • Understanding that many technologies don’t make it to mainstream adoption
    • And that even those that will will have a period of reduced interest
    • Main application in timing your own or your organisations adoption of a technology and reducing the risks when you choose to embrace an innovation

 We are going to create the eGPLearning 2020 Primary Care Health Technology Hype Curve
