Recently issued NHS England’s “Five Year Forward View” shows promising strides towards patient engagement in the United Kingdom. With about eight years of patient engagement solutions experience in the U.S., Get Real Health is excited about expanding their reach in the United Kingdom and around the globe. Andy Payne, Manager of European Operations at Get Real Health comments on the importance of harnessing patient engagement to drive benefits for the individual patient as well as the U.K. healthcare system as a whole.
For Get Real Health, the key part of the five year road map for the UK is personal health records and the patient’s active participation. A highlight of the report includes, “Fully interoperable electronic health records so that patients’ records are largely paperless. Patients will have full access to these records, and be able to write into them.” This ties in perfectly with the solutions Get Real Health has been providing over the years, such as InstantPHR.
“The end game here is better outcomes for the patients, and better outcomes for the patients hopefully will mean savings for the healthcare system,” Payne said.
Get Real Health is excited to see the results for the UK with their “Five Year Forward View”.
