The Digital Challenge Facing GPs
New technology + Old Behaviours = Expensive Old Business
Short term public sector interventions, responding to increased demand by doing more of the same, and heavy GP workloads hinder the introduction of new ways of working.
The Government is responding to health service pressures by prioritising activities that motivate patients to look after their own health.
Around 60-70% of premature deaths are caused by poor health behaviours, and 25-40% of the population feel ill-equipped to make improvements themselves (The King’s Fund, 2014).
It is recognised that online technologies can play a vital role in promoting greater self-care, while also creating operational efficiencies. More than 70,000 websites disseminate health information to in excess of 50 million people (2001). But health professionals express concern that the quality of information can vary wildly, much is inaccurate or irrelevant, it fragments services with users finding it hard to navigate.
The Accessible GP will help you to change this - whether you're an individual practice, a Federation/Cluster or an innovative CCG or Public Health.
