Amplitude pro series for Private Hospitals

Meaningful, validated hospital outcomes for Private Hospitals

All private hospitals are keen to demonstrate the quality of patient care, especially with regard to the patient’s perception of treatment. It is a positive activity that drives continuous improvements. In order to monitor and improve the services you provide, it is essential to measure the quality of practice of your consultants combined with levels of patient satisfaction.

Increased pressure on Private Hospitals to capture clinical outcomes

As a private healthcare provider you face numerous challenges from regulators and insurers seeking to drive down costs to competitors proactively working to increase market share.

PHIN, the Private Healthcare Information Network, is mandated by the CMA to ensure that private patients have the information they need to choose between consultants and has made clinical outcomes reporting compulsory, in private practice, from 2017.

Where private hospitals are seeking NHS contracts, patient choice and, more recently, outcome driven commissioning, place you and your consultants under increasing pressure to prove that you are delivering the highest levels of care compared to neighbouring providers.

You must accurately measure your performance and publish results demonstrating the quality of treatment provided within your establishment. In order for the data to do more than just monitor, it is important that you have a clear understanding of the true clinical outcomes of all of your patients including the more complex cases.

How could Amplitude help in your private hospital?

Amplitude Pro Series offers a simple, tailored online platform centred around two crucial elements, helping you to achieve a more personalised way of patient monitoring.

User-friendly electronic patient portal gives patients freedom to complete scores on site and via various hardware. Consultant dashboard gives your clinicians the ability to input patient specific complexity factors and procedure data quickly and easily.

The result is representative, accurate and meaningful data, painting a clear picture of each patient’s level of health and expected recovery. Amplitude engages your clinicians with the outcomes processes at your hospital and gives you the insight you need to manage hospital services efficiently, ensuring patients get consistently high standards of care.

pro enterprise™ is the first product to give an accurate, ‘whole picture’ view of your hospital’s performance. It is simple, cost effective and delivers precise and accurate data, selecting scores that are identified as important to you. The data you collect in pro enterprise™ enables you to monitor service delivery, identify quality issues and demonstrate levels of care. Your hospital can be confidently transparent about its activities, resulting in reassurance to your community that you are offering the best care possible.

Patient supplied, clinically validated outcomes for your hospital

The system is quick, user friendly and largely automated. By sending out the appropriate scores at pre-defined intervals, it seeks patient interaction electronically and automatically prompts patients to respond at key stages along the clinical pathway.

Clinical information can be added using time-saving custom defaults whereby the clinician can add data that is relevant and clinically validated.

pro enterprise™ will interface with other hospital systems to capture demographic data, avoiding duplication and achieving staff acceptance and compliance. It can also run independently if that is your preference.

pro enterprise™ abides by strict Information Governance standards.

Amplitude offers additional services and guidance around patient engagement and communications to ensure that you have all of the skills and tools that you need to create a highly compliant, positive outcomes culture in your hospital.

CASE STUDIES

Our Customers

Victoria Gibbs, Service Improvement Manager at ABMU Health Board

“Easy to access and easy to use for clinicians, patients and admin staff. Very support team within Amplitude for both pre and post sale support. Ability to create bespoke pathways as well as access to a variety of validated measures and registries.
Highly recommend.”

Victoria Gibbs, Service Improvement Manager at ABMU Health Board

Mike Hutton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Chairman of the British Spine Registry

“We needed a system that would provide clinically valid data whilst also not involving too much input from the Consultants. Amplitude Clinical Outcomes offered a system which could do all of this. With an automated system, Consultants needed only to complete the procedure form before the scores were sent to the patient. It was the perfect choice.”

Mike Hutton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon and Chairman of the British Spine Registry

Karie Burbeck, Business Manager at The Joint Clinic

“We have been using Amplitude for our orthopaedic patients since June 2014. We have found that patients enjoy being involved in the outcomes process and we achieve excellent levels of compliance. The system is very simple. Our patients receive their scores by email. Our clinicians validate a diagnosis and can keep up to date with all of their patients during treatment and beyond discharge. We use reports from Amplitude for consultant revalidation and appraisal. It is very cost effective and requires minimal admin time, excellent value for money. There is very little training required and the system is intuitive. We have needed precious little support from the Amplitude staff but, where we have had questions, the help desk and technical teams respond quickly and are extremely friendly and polite. I would recommend Amplitude to any clinician or hospital seeking a slick and simple outcomes solution that patients can easily engage with.”

Karie Burbeck, Business Manager at The Joint Clinic

Jo Watson, Administrative Assistant at Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

“Generally very easy to use the site. After giving me delegate rights for all the Consultants it has made input much easier and simpler and better for the Consultants as they are generally finding the system much easier to use. It is very easy to drag and drop the information from our hospital system into the British Spine Registry site. The support given by the team is second to none and I do appreciate all the help. Not only are they all very patient but also rectify the problems very quickly indeed. In every case they have rectified my problems within hours and certainly by the end of the working day. I think for that, Amplitude give the most excellent support which far exceeds anything I have experienced before.”

Jo Watson, Administrative Assistant at Taunton and Somerset NHS Foundation Trust

Jason Auld, pro one™

“I’ve been using pro one™ for a year now, both in the NHS and private sector. It allows me to gather accurate follow-up data on my hip and knee arthroplasty patients, as well as those undergoing Osteotomies and ligament reconstructions around the knee. This meets a requirement for us to demonstrate our clinical outcomes at Appraisal and Revalidation, without relying on patchy local PROMS data and the crude outcome statistics of NJR reporting at consultant level. It is a powerful system, which the excellent and enthusiastic team are continually improving to make it more personalised for different surgeons’ requirements. It does, however, require some administrative support to ensure complete data capture, as not all patients comply with email requests and some are not even online!”

Jason Auld, pro one™

Harry Palmer, UK Knee Osteotomy Registry

“Amplitude provide a solid system that has been the core component of the UK’s Osteotomy Registry since its inception three years ago. The staff are talented and committed, which shows in the product they supply. Efforts to update the Registry ensures the product grows as you do.”

Harry Palmer, UK Knee Osteotomy Registry

Dennis Kosuge, pro one™

“I have been using pro one™ ever since my appointment as Consultant Trauma & Orthopaedic Surgeon two years ago. I register all of my hip/knee arthroplasty patients on this system and it captures information including the Oxford Hip/Knee Scores, EQ-5D, Pain Vas pre-operatively and at defined intervals post-operatively. pro one™ also collects patient reported and surgeon reported complications. I analyse the data periodically to ensure my results are comparable to regional and national results. Personally, it is a great tool that motivates me to aim higher and not accept status quo. The data I have collected using pro one™ has been used in my annual appraisals.

The system is very straight-forward to use and accessible remotely. I have encountered several ‘bugs’ in the system but the team are quick to take note of my feedback and rectify the problems. Overall, I am delighted that such a system is available.”

Dennis Kosuge, pro one™

Andy Goldberg, pro one™

“I have been using Amplitude pro one™ in my private practice for two years and my NHS practice for three years.  We have published the results of our work in the British Medical Journal (http://bmjopenbeta.bmj.com/content/6/6/e011975.abstract).  We believe that our practice of capturing data on every patient is unique and world leading and could not have been accomplished without the help of Amplitude.”

Sean O’Leary, National Ligament Registry

“Online data collection has to be the future and Amplitude are at the forefront of this development. I have been hugely impressed by the system and its excellent reports interface.”

Sean O’Leary, National Ligament Registry

Mary Jones, Director of Research and Outcomes, Fortius Clinic

“It’s great having a strong working relationship with Amplitude where we can collaboratively share ideas and ways to develop with the system. As we are a new clinic, we don’t have any figures to compare with, but the patient compliance rate for pre-treatment forms is averaging at least 60%, and looks set to continue to rise as our usage and knowledge grows.”

Mary Jones, Director of Research and Outcomes, Fortius Clinic

Ian McDermott, Specialist Knee Surgeon and Managing Partner

“The Amplitude system is the best platform I have seen for interacting with patients, for gathering the right data in the least painful way, and for interpreting data and presenting results. The team from Amplitude have been a pleasure to work with, and I can wholeheartedly recommend them and their system.”

Ian McDermott, Specialist Knee Surgeon and Managing Partner

Alistair Jepson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northampton General Hospital.

“The collection of Patient Reported Outcomes Measures has up until now been difficult; Amplitude pro one has changed all that. I have found it easy to integrate into my practice and the software is easy and intuitive to use. My patients have all been very happy to engage in the process, and my data capture rate has been close to 100%. Furthermore I have been impressed with Amplitude’s customer service and the regular improvements that come online too.”

Alistair Jepson, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Northampton General Hospital.

John Timperley – Chair Non Arthroplasty Hip Register Subcommittee

Ashley Cole, British Spinal Registry

“During the development of the British Spine Registry, Amplitude were very responsive to the clinical requirements and knowledgeable about the technical aspects. The Company is large and experienced enough to produce and manage the software product but small enough to care and provide a friendly service. This has been an excellent example of how clinicians and IT experts can work together to produce an amazing product which will benefit our patients.”

Ashley Cole, British Spinal Registry

David Elson

“Amplitude are leaders in establishing bespoke registry packages, which is why our choice was simple. The registry data platform assimilates complex data quickly and the website is flexible as our registry develops.”

David Elson

Jonathan Lucas, British Spine Registry

“I have found the telephone customer service at Amplitude most helpful, they answer the phone promptly and are able to resolve my questions quickly and efficiently.  The best telephone service I have encountered!”
