CaptureStroke – The Stroke Care System that Pays for Itself
CaptureStroke is a specialist clinical solution designed specifically to streamline acute stroke care, helping to monitor performance in real time, ensure SSNAP standards are met and improve patient outcomes.
“CaptureStroke is helping us to ensure quality data collection to support the service, maximise Best Practice Tariff (BPT) performance and evidence CQUIN target attainment.”
Tracy Bray, Senior Clinical Systems Project Manager, Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust
Crucial to CaptureStroke’s success has been its ability to help trusts meet key targets. Whether it’s taking another step towards paperless care or improving SSNAP performance (for Best Practice Tariffs). A typical Trust can achieve a return on their investment in under 12 months with only a 5% improvement in their target attainments.
Trusts from Newcastle to Cornwall have recognised that CaptureStroke’s capabilities and end-to-end support for the stroke care pathway deliver measurable benefits to both patient outcomes and the bottom line.
According to one customer’s research, CaptureStroke has reduced consultants’ time spent on data entry and revision by 78% – down from 45 minutes to eight minutes per patient. Overall, they’ve also seen a reduction of 45% in staff time on admin and performance review, generating savings of £19,300. At another site, the consultant stroke physician said the system had helped them improve their performance a key BPT target by over 170%.
CaptureStroke supports the running of stroke care services with:
- End-to-end, effective and paper-light administration
- Real-time data collection integrated with workflows
- An at-a-glance for various targets and clinical trial suitability
- Reduced data input duplication and improved data quality
- On-demand performance reporting (including SSNAP and BPT)
- Seamless integration with hospital Patient Administration Systems (PAS) and ITK interoperability accreditation
CaptureStroke has the power to reduce costs by making data capture a by-product of patient care. Ultimately, these efficiencies will result in a stroke care service that is faster, more cost effective and properly reimbursed.
