Until now, holistic needs assessments (HNAs) have been recorded on paper. The electronic-HNA tool allows information to be stored, reviewed and updated more easily as people progress through their cancer experience.
Electronic storing also makes it simpler for a patient’s notes to be shared among the wider multidisciplinary team. It’s hoped that patients will find using the tablets more straightforward than filling in written forms.
Macmillan commissioned HealthUnlocked, an online software design company, to develop the software behind the tool, while four NHS Trusts in England were chosen as test sites (see the NCSI website| for details).
Testing began in February and will continue until August, with a final report due at the end of the year.
