Devon Partnership NHS Trust Boosts Productivity and Patient Safety while Maximising Coverage with My Flu Jab App Hosted by UKCloud Health


Cloud-based Digital Health App Developed by Devon Partnership NHS Trust Enables Easier Recording, Real-time Reporting and Improved External Submission

London – 19 April 2018 – UKCloud Health, the easy to adopt, easy to use and easy to leave assured cloud services company, today announced the successful completion of a collaboration with Devon Partnership NHS Trust to implement My Flu Jab App, a cloud-based app developed by the Trust to support staff during the winter flu period.

As the health service in England faces continued pressure following a series of recent cold snaps, it is no longer enough simply to count on the commitment and hard work of staff to overcome some of its most challenging circumstances for years. Facing persistently high flu hospitalisations, a renewed spike in norovirus and prolonged cold weather, just like all other trusts, Devon Partnership NHS Trust has weathered the storm better than most thanks to a new app that it developed called ‘My Flu Jab’.

The app, which was developed by the Informatics team at Devon Partnership NHS Trust – and is hosted remotely by UKCloud Health – has enabled staff to significantly improve their productivity by speeding up the data recording process and eliminating errors.

With a paper-based process, vaccination recoding would have taken 8 minutes each, they now take less than 2 minutes – a 75% decrease in administration time. And where it once took 5-6 hours to manually trawl through data to find out how many people have been vaccinated (sometimes even taking days), this can now be done in real-time. In all it is estimated that a total of 16 man-days were saved by eliminating manual tasks, allowing valuable resources to be redirected to promoting flu vaccination.

Another issue with the paper process was either the inaccuracy or loss of information– with incomplete or missing forms causing significant problems. The app’s electronic form includes built-in validation checks to ensure accuracy. And national data returns, which was once a lengthy and manual exercise, is now automated and streamlined, and records now also include a complete audit history.

“Putting the app to the test during the challenging flu outbreak for years, might not have been the easiest proving ground, but ‘My Flu Jab’ has more than proven its worth,” explained Rony Arafin, Assistant Director of Informatics from The Devon Partnership NHS Trust. “Indeed, it made everything from data recording and reporting so much easier that our vaccinators wouldn’t want to be without it. Not only did it make their jobs appreciably easier, but our improved efficiency ensured a swifter and more effective process thereby also improving patient safety. And it allowed us to reinvest time in further promoting the flu vaccination campaign in order to maximise flu vaccine uptake, all aimed at keeping our staff and patients safe.”

“The Devon Partnership NHS Trust is leading the way in digital health, demonstrating that innovation, coupled with advances in the capabilities of devices and the cloud processing and storage that supports them, can really make a difference,” added Simon Hansford, CEO of UKCloud Health. “Not only do we think that other trusts can obviously benefit from an app like ‘My Flu Jab’, but we expect to see a host of other apps being deployed to help address many of the other challenges that the NHS faces.”

“In allowing direct submission of details and consent on to the system, it facilitated real time data collection, with cumulative flu vaccine totals visible. It also saved further processing time, post flu clinics, avoiding the need to submit paper copy details electronically separately. Win–Win!” added an Infection Prevention & Control Nurse, Devon Partnership NHS Trust & Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.
