How No Code Low Code Apps power Patient Engagement and Operational Efficiency?

If a person has a stroke, the ambulance crew that sees them will typically have just a few minutes to take their history, examine them and take their vital signs before deciding what to do next.

Timely and accurate patient data is not just useful in these cases – it’s a key decisive factor. The shorter it takes for the ambulance team to assess their patient and decide whether and where to convey them, the better the potential outcomes.

For a long time, the exchange of this highly critical medical information has happened via paper-based forms. An ambulance crew would fill out a form and pass it to the A&E team when they arrived at the hospital. This increasingly outdated system is prone to delays – the information cannot be transmitted in advance – thereby putting the patient’s health at further risk.

Today, these and many other processes can be digitalised and automated simply and effectively through Microsoft Power Platform for Healthcare. Quick, easy to use and develop, these business apps are becoming the answer to healthcare’s constantly evolving requirements.

Microsoft Power Platform for Healthcare: The Importance of Delivering Patient-Focussed Services

The past two years have been incredibly challenging for the healthcare sector. Faced with new issues such as lockdowns and long-standing ones such as reduced capacity, an ageing population and increasing clinician burnout, the healthcare sector has been forced to rethink many of the ways it operates.

To ensure that healthcare staff spend as much time as possible with their patients, we’ve seen the health service realise the importance of modernising processes, putting greater emphasis on efficiency and resource optimisation, as well as automating manual tasks.

Technology and patient engagement are – now more than ever – intrinsically tied. The importance of thorough record-keeping and the complexity of modern medicine puts pressure on the time doctors can spend with their patients. Luckily, this is where low-code applications and automation technology can help.

Turning the Tide with Low Code No Code Applications and Automation Platforms

With business applications like Microsoft’s Power Apps, organisations can create highly cost-effective, quick and simple solutions that can cater to their many needs.

Using these applications, staff can create bespoke solutions using low amounts of coding (or even no coding at all). They’re easy to build, manage and scale. In addition, the drag-and-drop functionalities and pre-built templates simplify the process. As a result, senior-level developers are no longer required to build high-quality, secure apps and automation.

That is game-changing. Not only does it enable faster time-to-deployment compared to traditional software developments. But it also allows people with different experiences to give their input when building the apps. This ultimately creates highly customised solutions that meet their specific needs.

From Time-Critical Situations to Day-to-Day Patient Referrals with Microsoft Power Platform for Healthcare

Power Apps have transformational potential in many areas of healthcare, particularly when it comes to resource management.

During the pandemic, this provisioning used to happen via a multitude of apps and websites. However, as soon as demand increased dramatically, inefficiencies in the system meant that some hospitals had too much PPE and others not enough.

Here again, the team has started using Power Apps to build a range of checklist apps that replace their existing paper-based processes. They’re now also attaching QR codes to their medical bags, which can then be scanned to keep track of equipment.

Beyond emergency response, we see more and more organisations turn to business apps to automate all kinds of manual processes.

As a mental health organisation, they sometimes refer their patients to other specialists. Previously, these referrals would happen through email or fax. Now, the organisation has created a primary to secondary care referral system – via Power Apps. This system allows them to share patient information in a seamless and secure way. All while reducing the opportunity for mistakes and delays to occur.

Building low code apps with No Code Power Platform

After an incredibly challenging period, it’s time for healthcare to look ahead. The past two years have demonstrated the importance of having agile, fast and digital solutions that simplify operations for clinicians, giving them time back to spend with their patients.
