New system could make NHS services faster and better

GP's practices will soon have the ability to access fast and relevant information thanks to a new computer service set to be rolled out by the NHS. Health officials hope the iQudos service will speed up response times and allow patients to be cared for closer to their home. Mike Henley, a consultant urologist and architect of iQudos, said the service will help to take the pressure off hospitals while enabling people to be looked after in a better manner. It is designed to provide instant information on medical conditions and in some cases allows patients to "self-manage themselves".

"Our system works using a patient’s history, patient reported questionnaires of how they feel they are getting on, physical measurements and blood tests as appropriate," he explained to the Daily Express. He added that the system will also be able to identify suitable patients if and when new trials or treatments become available.
