MyPathway Waiting List Management

MyPathway Waiting List Management addresses patients whose care has been interrupted by COVID-19 or the overloading of providers. The digital health platform allows revalidation and reprioritisation of waiting lists, ensuring priority cases are seen first.

Patients are able to keep clinicians up-to-date with their condition and can discharge themselves if they no longer need support. By prompting patients to answer condition-specific questionnaires within the app, red flag markers can be identified and patients can be directed to the appropriate care. Reports are then provided to the Service to enable them to manage their waiting list accordingly based on the patient’s responses. In non-priority cases, patients can be singposted to self-help resources. This ultimately all helps to reduce wait list and consultation times whilst ensuring patients remain informed and supported.

MyPathway Waiting List Management can be up and working within days and can work on a standalone basis. IT or administrative support is available where needed to enable rapid deployment of the service on top of ‘Business as Usual’ operations, minimising the support required from existing hospital staff.

MyPathway Patient Initiated Follow Up (PIFU)

MyPathway Patient Initiated Follow Up (PIFU) puts post-surgery patients and those living with long-term conditions in control of making an appointment when they need it. For many of these patients, regular hospital follow-up appointments are often unnecessary and can put preventable strain on already stretched waiting lists.

MyPathway PIFU helps to eliminate avoidable routine appointments and empowers patients
and their carers to initiate their own appointments as and when they need them.
The service gives patients an active role in their healthcare and encourages self-management, aligning with the NHS personalised care agenda.
