Electronic Holistic Needs Assessment
Macmillan's eHNA allows a Holistic Needs Assessment (HNA) to be completed electronically.
The eHNA allows for the person affected by cancer to complete the HNA questionnaire on a touch screen tablet. This information is then sent to the clinician through a secure website to begin the process of care and support planning
Care and support plans can be printed and saved for sharing with the person affected by cancer and their health care team. Each team has access to its own data for reporting and analysis, and to identify local service needs. Anonymous data collected from the assessments and care plans can be used to look at the overall needs of different groups of people. This in turn can help to inform the planning of local services.
Details of how to sign up to use the eHNA can be found on the right hand side.
Please contact the team with any further queries by emailing eHNA@macmillan.org.uk.
