A paradigm shift to facilitate clinical monitoring, screening, assessments and other needs, especially under the present covid climate, lies in remote patient engagement. The future-proof interoperability solution that automatically updates patient records and makes life easier for patients, GP practices and Community staff is realised with Syml_Patient+ Remote. Whilst sustainable time and cost benefits were crucial, the Clinical Leads placed paramount importance to the efficiency gain that the processing simplicity provided.

Syml Patient+ Remote is a reactive, impactful and cost-efficient patient-clinician remote solution for primary and community care organisations, without compromising the already stretched resources.

The solution is a remote version of Syml PatientPlus, enabling clinicians to 'assign' clinical, at-risk or monitoring questionnaires via email or SMS messaging. All patient responses and vital sign data are filed back seamlessly to GP clinical system records. Assistive intelligence creates interactive reports, supporting clinicians in identifying threshold alerts to initiate preventative actions promptly.

Access to accurate time-critical patient health data has an immense impact on clinical monitoring and preventative care delivery measures. The ongoing unprecedented Covid-19 pandemic crisis augmented this severity, immeasurably. Significant increase in the waiting list on a national scale is being experienced due to the reduction in the standard face-to-face consultations.

With innovative use of intelligent communication technology, patient monitoring could be dramatically transformed with simple user-friendly digital engagement. Empowering patients to provide the required information from their personal devices, in the comfort of their own homes, automates bulk patient monitoring without claiming extra consultation time, where avoidable.

Whilst all patients are monitored seamlessly, the clinical time is more efficiently spent on identified priority patients. An advanced, real-time interactive data visualisation feature provides Clinicians with powerful threshold alerts for early preventative interventions.

Syml’s uniqueness lies in the multi-tiered modular configuration using data capturing, data access, protocol building, communication technology and integration engines with existing GP systems. Syml Patient+ was designed to address a direct demand from the clinicians, to reduce the numerous debilitating effects of manual paper-processing, experienced daily by healthcare professionals and administrative staff.

With this secure and ‘remote’ solution, GP practices can continue to engage and monitor patients for their clinical conditions even under the pandemic. The value-add of the fully integrated solution lies with the assistive technology and its analytical features. Patient+ Remote offers patients the peace of mind and competence to the clinical team with the desired continuity of monitoring of all patients, during and beyond COVID-19.

The flexibility of the Syml system and the ability to customise according to my own exact needs was on the top of my agenda, which actually drives my practice to realise efficiency as never before.

I used the system opportunistically to achieve an important Primary Care Target for Ethnicity records updating to 2011 Census from 2001.

Whilst sustainable time and cost benefits are crucial, I place paramount importance to the efficiency gain that the Syml simplicity provided us with.
