Mobile technology to assist NHS in paperless pledge

Mobile technology could help GPs spend more time with patients and improve the quality of healthcare of the NHS.

Mobile technology could help GPs spend more time with patients and improve the quality of healthcare of the NHS.

It has been predicted that becoming paperless could save the NHS billions, improve services and assist in meeting the increasing needs of an ageing population. However, a recent freedom of information request submitted to NHS trusts across England has highlighted that the NHS is not meeting its pledge to create a "paperless NHS" by 2018.

Cantab Mobile is completely paperless and allows for quick, sensitive assessments of memory impairment to identify the earliest signs of mild cognitive impairment and dementia. This means that Cantab Mobile could assist the NHS to achieve two targets, increasing the dementia diagnosis rate to 66% by 2015 and of becoming paperless by 2018.

Cantab Mobile enables doctors to increase dementia detection rates without the need for extra resources. Right now up to 1,000 Cantab Mobile assessments are being carried out each month within the NHS to raise the level of timely diagnosis and reduce inappropriate referrals. Test results are automatically calculated with an instant report and audit trail, providing a quick result without adding any unnecessary paperwork.
