Empowering 76,000 Clinicians in Australia With New Patient Insights
The voice of NSW’s 7 million citizens is rising thanks to NSW’s forward-thinking leaders committed to improving patient care across Australia’s largest health system.
There is a lot of health care innovation in Australia where there has been a strong focus on listening to patients. Patients take centre stage in New South Wales (NSW), where evidence-based, clinically validated patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient reported experience measures (PREMs) are being deployed across the entire health system. In a first-of-its-kind initiative globally, working with NSW Agency for Clinical Innovation and eHealth NSW, Pulse Infoframe is deploying 15 different PROMs and PREMs, empowering 76,000 NSW clinicians with new patient insights.
Empowering Patients With Colorectal Cancer
Bowel Cancer Australia is the leading community-funded NGO and patient advocacy organisation dedicated to prevention, early diagnosis, research, quality treatment and the best care for everyone affected by bowel (colorectal) cancer. Through the deployment of the International Consortium of Health Outcomes Measurement (ICHOM) Colorectal Cancer Standard Set, Bowel Cancer Australia is empowering patients with tools and knowledge, to be advocates for their own health and to express what matters most to them about their treatment and care. Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer globally, affecting men and women, young and old. Pulse’s technology platform, with an enhanced e-healthie payment gateway for clinicians, facilitates the collection of valuable information direct from patients using standardised questionnaires to help clinicians better understand patient perceptions about the impact colorectal cancer has on their lives.
These two new Pulse clients join Ramsay Health Care hospitals in deploying the Pulse Infoframe technology platform to capture the patient voice in Australia through PROMs and PREMs. They’re two more examples of healthcare innovation in Australia.
