Disruptive innovation? Online consultation and general practice
New tools and services are already allowing general practice to work in new ways. They range from systems that enable practices to improve patient flows to AI based apps that do some of the work of GPs and services where the only face to face contact between doctor and patient is on a screen.
This half-day event on 17 October in London, 7 November in Birmingham and 15 November in Manchester for primary care commissioners will explain some of the approaches on offer, with examples of products and services in use today.
The latest speaker to confirm is Dr Zubair Ahmed, founder of MedicSpot,who will talk about the benefits of making GPs available in community pharmacies. Patients are able to have a video consultation with a GP while performing their own diagnostic tests – assisted by pharmacy staff if necessary. MedicSpot is provided as well as not instead of existing GP services and does not require the patient to de-register. Benefits, according to the company, including reduced attendance at A&E and other NHS services.
