Accurx helps to create a more joined-up healthcare system, where everyone involved in a patient’s care can communicate with each other to deliver better care.Today, over 98% of GPs in England use Accurx. Through the Covid-19 pandemic they helped 30 million people get the vaccinations they needed.
Just one patient in the NHS system requires a huge amount of system coordination from all the professionals providing their care. Whether speaking to a patient, coordinating care across services, making patient referrals or asking second opinions, healthcare staff spend countless hours communicating day to day. For decades, NHS staff have had to rely on legacy systems and siloed channels to manage patient care. This all results in communication breakdown, with overstretched staff and suffering patient care.
Accurx helps doctors and patients communicate with simple and fast technology. Through one platform everyone involved in the patient’s care has a space for discussion and sharing information. It’s quicker and more efficient than the current mix of letters, phones and pagers found in the NHS. And it has the power to transform the stories of patients for the better.
