How can Kinesis make a difference?

Kinesis has numerous benefits for our clinical users, the NHS but most importantly, the patient.

Patient benefits:

  • Patients receive faster treatment outcomes in a local setting
  • Patients are able to make more informed decision on specialist care with their GP
  • Reduces the risk of re-directed hospital referral and unnecessary hospital appointments
  • Less travelling to and from appointments
General Practitioners:
  • GPs find Kinesis saves them time writing out lengthy unneeded referral letters
  • Quick, reliable responses to clinical questions mean GPs save time trying to call through to secondary care and/or ‘bleep’ someone.
  • Supports primary care in making complex clinical decisions
  • Improves GP knowledge when managing different conditions
  • The system allows a secure and auditable way of conversing with secondary care
  • Kinesis can be accessed from anywhere on any device
  • Maintains patient management in the community with support from secondary care

  • Kinesis allows consultants to get treatment started prior to referral and request further investigations prior to a referral

Technology and Security

Patient data and the conversations between clinicians is sensitive and of utmost importance. That’s why we use full encryption within the application and whenever information is transmitted; why we’ve chosen Microsoft Azure as our UK datacentre partner (they spend over $1 billion a year on security), why we adopt NHS Information Governance rules and why conferrals using Kinesis A&G remain private only the NHS staff involved.

Advice and guidance for the NHS CQUIN

Why is it so relevant now?

Pressures on the NHS are widely publicised. When you look closer, much of that pressure could be alleviated if we could remove some of the inefficiencies that are a legacy of the 20th century. The data clearly shows that two-thirds of patients attending outpatient clinics could have been treated in primary care if GPs have access to the knowledge they needed; patients avoid long waits outpatient clinic appointments and hospitals can use their consult time in clinics with the more needy patients; hundreds of millions of pounds of unnecessary spend could be avoided by patients getting the right care, sooner.
