SymlConnect recently had the honour of being featured in Advance Wales-The Journal for Science, Engineering and Technology in Wales(published by the Welsh Government) in their summer issue 69. The article titled Connecting Technology Helps Improve Patient Care, featured two of SymlConnect’s products Syml_CarePad+ and Syml_Beat+, and describes how they can help to improve patient care.
Following approval from Andrew Griffiths, Head of NHS Wales, in Jan’13, Syml_CarePad+ is being piloted in four Swansea GP practices using the EMIS GP system. GPs going to home visits, download the patient information in the CarePad+ from their own system before leaving the practice. At the visits they can access the information in a secured and confidential surrounding allowing them to view the up-to-date information and input further data as per consultation. The data is seamlessly uploaded to their own practice system on return to the practice surroundings, saving them clinical time and improving efficiency.
