Commissioners and Exercise Referral Service Managers in Harrow are benefitting from the positive impact Pulsepoint is having on the management of data from their exercise referral services.
Harrow Council took up the option of using Pulsepoint in order to enhance the flow of data between health professionals and local leisure service providers and to collate more robust, clinical outcome reporting from their successful Exercise Referral programmes.
Exercise Referral Programme Manager Andrzej Juraszek co-ordinated the introduction of Pulsepoint and has monitored the impact it has had on the management of outcome data within his programmes.
“The introduction of Pulsepoint has had a positive impact upon our service, giving us the ability to have a real time view of how the service is performing against key targets. It also allows me to monitor referrals to the programme and our patient’s journey. Pulsepoint has enabled us to spend less time doing administration and increased the rate of referrals by 24% over a three month period.”
The initial introduction of Pulsepoint has been hailed as a success and Harrow Council are now extending the scope of Pulsepoint to encompass data capture from associated services, starting with NHS Health Checks. Plans are currently underway to link Pulsepoint to GP databases allowing secure information transfer (with appropriate consent), and improved information sharing particularly between referrers and their patients to help deliver truly integrated care.
