Follow Up Waiting List Validation

clinician time and Trust spend is not wasted on unnecessary activity
risk of clinical harm
optimal patient care
Follow Up patients are potentially the cohort at greatest risk of clinical harm, for example, if the Follow Up date has been exceeded by a clinically relevant period of time. Also, unnecessary outpatient attendances are very common, leading to wasted clinician time and Trust spend.
Clinical Risk Prioritisation
All pathways validated will be categorised into clearly defined cohorts based on clinical risk, enabling the Trust to take immediate action on those patients at the greatest clinical risk, minimising the risk of clinical harm occurring and ensuring patients are seen in order of need.
Reducing Unnecessary Outpatient Attendances
Identifying and removing unnecessary outpatient attendances ensures clinic slots and clinician time are not wasted by seeing patients who do not actually require an appointment. This is achieved through identifying which outpatient attendances are not required and removing the attendance.
Lost to Follow Up
Validation can determine the status of the Follow Up patient, identifying whether potential ‘lost to follow up’ patients do in fact require a further activity.

Average of 26% of patients identified as overdue their Follow Up date by a clinically significant period of time
