Chelsea and Westminster launches innovative digital care pathway for new mums

Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has launched a new digital postnatal discharge system, powered by Lumeon technology.

The software is being used in a bid to improve the patient experience, increase efficiency and reduce costs at the hospital. The system is funded by CW+, the official charity of Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.

Lumeon’s Care Pathway Management system digitises the postnatal pathway. All activities and tasks are orchestrated and automated in real time, with the ability to get a good overview of the care being delivered. Digital dashboards allow multi-disciplinary team members to quickly see what they need to do next, and by when, for each patient to meet their discharge slot. Staff are able to communicate more effectively with new mums, and provide a more holistic overview relating to them and their baby as regards getting them ready for home.

“As an organisation, we are committed to being innovative and human-centered when providing excellent care and experiences for mothers, their families and our staff,” said Dr Sunita Sharma, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital. “We are very proud to see the new postnatal digital tool now in action and I see even more exciting times ahead as we expand on what the system can allow us to do.”
 
“Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is passionate about health innovation delivering exceptional patient care," added Dr Zoe Penn, medical director at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust. "Together with our charity CW+, we identify technology partners that will help us excel in these areas. We have worked closely with the Lumeon team and we are excited about this fantastic new system that will help to deliver great care to new mums and their families.”
