The recent nationwide discontinuation of Emergency Department Digital Integration (EDDI) has sent ripples across NHS referral and appointment systems, impacting services provided via the 111 telephone and online platforms. This disruption presents a significant challenge to the seamless operations of NHS Emergency Departments. Especially during a time when resources are stretched and NHS England is calling for trusts and ICS’s to focus on productivity.
At Strata Health, we recognise the critical need for a resilient, integrated solution to navigate this transition effectively. Collaborating closely with NHS England, East Lancashire Hospitals NHS Trust, and University Hospitals of Morecambe Bay NHS Foundation Trust, we have prepared diligently for the decommissioning of EDDI.
Understanding Your Landscape
Navigating this transition requires a comprehensive understanding of your Emergency Department’s landscape and associated services. Ask yourself:
- Are you familiar with your current EDDI usage and volumes?
- Do you have insights into all your referral sources?
- Are you aware of all connected systems and the technologies they employ?
- Do you thoroughly understand all referral workflows and processes?
