- The Amplitude platform can notify you when a patient is not recovering as expected so you can take quick action if necessary to prevent further decline.
- The Amplitude platform offers you the option to also capture National Joint Registry (NJR) data, link it to the PROMs data and upload electronically to the NJR, giving you further insight into the quality of care being delivered by your organisation.
- Amplitude users have evidenced an increase in compliance rates of Q1 and Q2.
- Amplitude offers a fixed fee, regardless of patient numbers.
Don’t just take our word for it. Here is what Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has to say.
“Since the introduction of Amplitude at Yeovil for capturing our National PROMs, we have seen a marked increase in patient compliance rates for both Q1 and Q2. Our PROMs admin staff are now more effectively utilised, focussing on compliance rather than filling out and sending off paper forms. The overall result is better quality data, that we can use for service improvement decisions that costs the Trust less overall.”
Amplitude is Cyber Essentials Plus certified and has achieved ‘Standards Exceeded’ in our most recent NHS Data Security and Protection Toolkit submission, providing our customer the assurance that we actively practice good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.
The importance of National PROMs
The national Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) programme began in 2009 and is mandated by NHS England for Hip & Knee Primary & Revision Arthroplasties.
Every patient that goes through surgery is invited to provide feedback on the outcomes of their procedure. Responses to PROMs questions enable patients to report on their quality of life, daily functioning, and any side effects or symptoms they may be suffering from.
By comparing pre- and post-op questionnaire answers, hospitals can assess the “health gain” (improvement/deterioration) reported by patients. This can be used to compare hospital results against the national average and explore the differences in health gains across demographic groups or alternative surgical techniques. Analysing this data will also allow hospitals to investigate whether there are any patterns in their patients’ outcomes.
