What is your role?
I am a GP with 20 year’s experience working in the NHS
How do you currently use RAIDR?
As a GP I have found RAIDR an excellent tool to review my practice’s care particularly on chronic conditions which in turn supports improved outcomes for patients – the primary care section is particularly helpful for this.
Here is an a practical example around untreated Atrial Fibrillation which shows how I have used RAIDR to improve patient care and save lives :
“We are a good GP practice but I nearly had episode of AF myself! in a few clicks I very quickly identified 9 patients with potential AF who weren’t being treated, I emailed staff in practice to check out these patients. Very soon afterwards their reply indicated that 5 could be discounted e.g. they had declined treatment, or the condition had resolved etc but the remaining 4 are 4 potential lives saved. It’s not very often I can have that sort of impact in 30 minutes!”
What do you believe are the benefits of RAIDR?
The system is simple to use and gives valued information instantly.
Has your working life changed as a result of using RAIDR?
RAIDR gives an opportunity to review patients who might require higher levels of care, minimising the risk of admission and supporting them at home.
