Development begins on IPOS Timeline tool for St Barnabas Hospice, Lincolnshire

St Barnabas Hospice Lincolnshire, the main provider of hospice care and services across Lincoknshire, have commissioned the development of software to analyse patient input into the new IPOS Template in SystmOne.

The Integrated Palliative care Outcome Score template is part of the Outcome Assessment and Complexity Collaboration (OACC) by Kings College London, and is now being implemented across St Barnabas sites in Lincolnshire. Patients fill out a questionnaire covering a range of symptoms and measures about their quality of life, which healthcare professionals can then use coordinate care and monitor important changes over time.

St Barnabas IPOS Timeline uses an extract of the patient’s record in SystmOne to amalgamate all this information into easy-to-interpret graphs. This allows clinicians to quickly see how the patients situation is changing and the rate at which problems are developing.

First of type testing for the tool is planned to begin in October.
