Designed in a disease agnostic manner by Dr Majid Akram who is a General Practitioner with an interest in Digital Health, and Cardiovascular Lead for Lincs CCG. Deep Medicine is a digital health tech company that has developed vMDT as a product that allows health systems to integrate across the primary and secondary care interface, and promises to transform the pathways used to manage chronic disease patients’. Providing a platform for scheduling MDT meetings that connect professionals, allowing them to build holistic management plans tailored to each patients’ individual needs. The built in action management will direct tasks to those that are assigned a particular action relating to the patients’ management plan. An inbuilt patient portal is also used to communicate with patients’ and build management plans shaped around their wishes.
There are 400 million outpatient and GP appointments conducted within the NHS on an annual basis, as stated in the NHS long term plan published in January 2019. This comes with the aspiration of converting a third of these to virtual encounters. We believe that virtual MDT encounters could help reduce the following issues facing NHS patients.
The team-based approach to patient care is the best approach for the future, and vMDT can assist in realising this.
