DHACA is running its eighth WebinarWednesday on 20th May 10am on the topic of home testing. One of the two main themes of our webinars to date has been how technology can minimise face:face clinical interactions with patients whilst simultaneously improving patient outcomes and reducing costs.
This webinar continues that theme by showing how after electronic triage and remote consultation, a growing number of tests, of blood, urine, skin etc., can continue to be used to minimise face:face engagement, as well as improving patient access to prompt testing. We will look at the challenges and the benefits through the eyes of four brilliant speakers.

From Editor Donna: DHACA will have its ninth #WebinarWednesday on 3 June at 10am UK time. The topic is how best to promote technology to carers in the light of the pandemic. Editor Charles will be part of a panel discussion. More details and registration are right here.
DHACA restarts our webinar series after Easter Week with a panel of three contrasting suppliers of GP process improvement (aka “total triage”) software and the NHS England expert on the topic, at 10am on Wednesday. In our first Webinar, huge potential benefits were identified from use of this software, which is particularly well suited to the requirement of the current pandemic that face:face consultations be avoided where possible.
However the benefits don’t stop there. Patients, clinicians and practice managers all benefit hugely…and I can speak from personal experience as my local surgery converted recently and has never looked back! We’ll be exploring these benefits in more detail the following Wednesday 29th April in the following webinar when users – both professionals and patients – describe their experiences of the software, and the challenges implementing it.
For more information and to book for this week’s webinar go here and for next week’s (29 April) go here.
We have more exciting webinars coming up, including self-testing to reduce face:face GP consultations further so keep an eye on DHACA’s Webinar listing for when they are published.
