Adastra out-of-hours patient management system is now used across the whole of Scotland

Tayside, Forth Valley and Borders NHS Boards have recently gone live with Adastra from Advanced Health & Care (Advanced). Adastra, which is a market-leading patient management system designed specifically for out-of-hours, urgent and unscheduled care, is now used across all 14 NHS Boards in Scotland.

Adastra operates across seven locations in Tayside, three locations in Forth Valley and five locations in Borders, replacing a legacy patient management solution previously used across all three Boards.

The Adastra patient management system, which supports efficient and clinically safe case management over the phone, in consultation rooms and in the home, strongly supports the Scottish Government’s e-health strategy. This includes delivering integration with all the supporting e-health resources required by out-of-hours clinicians.

The e-health strategy mandates all Scottish health boards to use information and technology to maximise efficiency and savings; to enable people to communicate with NHSScotland; to contribute to care integration; to improve the availability of information and to improve the safety of people taking medicines.
Adastra is being used by the consortium to record all patient care activity and support effective clinical assessment.

Adastra links seamlessly to NHS24, an online and telephone-based service that is designed to provide comprehensive up-to-date health information and self-care advice which is available to patients 24/7.

Advanced’s Adastra system is used within organisations across the UK and Ireland including GP out-of-hours services; NHS 111 services; walk-in centres; urgent care centres; minor injuries units and community nursing teams.
