RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Despite high level of health care need amongst people experiencing homelessness, poor access is a major concern. This is sometimes due to organisational and bureaucratic barriers, but also because they often feel stigmatised and treated badly when they do seek health care. The COVID-19 pandemic and the required social distancing measures have caused unprecedented disruption and change for the organisation of primary care, particularly for people experiencing homelessness. Against this backdrop there are many questions to address regarding whether the recent changes required to deliver services to people experiencing homelessness in the context of COVID-19 will help to address or compound problems in accessing care and inequalities in health outcomes. METHODS: An action led and participatory research methodology will be employed to address the study objectives. Interviews with people experiencing homelessness were will be conducted by a researcher with lived experience of homelessness. Researchers with lived experience are able to engage with vulnerable communities in an empathetic, non-judgemental way as their shared experience promotes a sense of trust and integrity, which in turn encourages participation in research and may help people speak more openly about their experience. The experiences of health professionals and stakeholders delivering and facilitating care for people experiencing homelessness during the pandemic will also be explored. DISCUSSION: It is important to explore whether recent changes to the delivery of primary care in response to the COVID-19 pandemic compromise the safety of people experiencing homelessness and exacerbate health inequalities. This could have implications for how primary healthcare is delivered to those experiencing homelessness not only for the duration of the pandemic but in the future.

RESUMEN

CONTEXT.­: A novel electronic consult (e-consult) system for a pathology and laboratory medicine service (PLMS) was implemented in 2015 at a high-complexity Veterans Administration health care facility. Consults were previously made through direct provider communication without documentation in the medical record. OBJECTIVE.­: To evaluate the utilization trends of the laboratory e-consult system at the Department of Veterans Affairs Connecticut facility during the first 2 years since inception. DESIGN.­: E-consultation involves pathology and laboratory medicine resident review followed by attending pathologist review and cosignature. E-consults to the pathology and laboratory medicine service from 2015 to 2017 were reviewed to record type of consult, requesting department, patient location, and turnaround time. RESULTS.­: The pathology and laboratory medicine service received 351 e-consults from 2015 to 2017. The volume varied by subsection: hematology and coagulation (215 of 351; 61%), chemistry (109 of 351; 31%), blood bank (19 of 351; 6%), and microbiology/virology (8 of 351; 2%). Hematology and coagulation consults were entirely for peripheral blood smear review (215 of 215; 100%). Chemistry consults were placed for toxicology/drugs of abuse (81 of 109; 74%), test utilization (17 of 109; 16%), or nontoxicology (11 of 109; 10%). Three services placed the majority of consults: primary care (279 of 351; 80%), hematology/oncology (39 of 351; 11%), and psychiatry (27 of 351; 8%). The median turnaround time for completion of e-consults was 1.2 days. Since e-consult implementation, the mean number of consults increased from 8.6/mo in 2015 to 18.1/mo in 2017, peaking in the last quarter of analysis in 2017 with a mean of 25.3 consults/mo. CONCLUSIONS.­: This novel e-consult system improved accessibility to and documentation of answers to laboratory questions and increased the visibility of the pathology and laboratory medicine service. Future goals include development of outcomes-based measures to better assess the clinical impact of e-consults.

RESUMEN

Con la pandemia actual se ha abierto la posibilidad de usar herramientas tecnológicas, como la teleconsulta o consulta no presencial. En zonas rurales, o incluso en zonas semiurbanas, el acceso a servicios médicos puede verse restringido debido a problemas de transporte; en otros lugares el acceso a las consultas se ve limitado para evitar el contagio del paciente o del personal sanitario. Por estas razones se utilizan soluciones tecnológicas que permitan controlar a los pacientes a distancia, especialmente en el caso de pacientes crónicos, o como una forma de triaje a posibles pacientes con coronavirus. Lamentablemente este tipo de sistemas no se ha utilizado con la misma continuidad que en otros países y muchas veces nuestro personal sanitario desconoce la manera correcta de hacer una teleconsulta (por teléfono o video). Con este documento queremos ayudar a orientar de manera inicial cómo efectuar una teleconsulta en Atención Primaria


With the current pandemic, there is now the possibility of using technological tools, such as teleconsultation or remote consultation. In rural or even semi-urban areas, access to medical services may be restricted due to transportation problems. In other places access to the consultations is limited to avoid contagion from the patient or healthcare personnel. This is why technological solutions are used to allow us to monitor our patients remotely, especially in the case of chronic patients, or as a form of triage to potential patients with coronavirus. Unfortunately, this type of system has not been used with the same continuity as in other countries, and very often our health personnel do not know the correct way to carry out a teleconsultation (by phone or video). With this document, an initial guide is presented on how to make a teleconsultation in Primary Care

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Although novel teleconsultation solutions can deliver remote situations that are relatively similar to face-to-face interaction, remote assessment of heart rate and rhythm as well as risk factors remains challenging in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). HYPOTHESIS: Mobile health (mHealth) solutions can support remote AF management. METHODS: Herein, we discuss available mHealth tools and strategies on how to incorporate the remote assessment of heart rate, rhythm and risk factors to allow comprehensive AF management through teleconsultation. RESULTS: Particularly, in the light of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, there is decreased capacity to see patients in the outpatient clinic and mHealth has become an important component of many AF outpatient clinics. Several validated mHealth solutions are available for remote heart rate and rhythm monitoring as well as for risk factor assessment. mHealth technologies can be used for (semi-)continuous longitudinal monitoring or for short-term on-demand monitoring, dependent on the respective requirements and clinical scenarios. As a possible solution to improve remote AF care through teleconsultation, we introduce the on-demand TeleCheck-AF mHealth approach that allows remote app-based assessment of heart rate and rhythm around teleconsultations, which has been developed and implemented during the COVID-19 pandemic in Europe. CONCLUSION: Large scale international mHealth projects, such as TeleCheck-AF, will provide insight into the additional value and potential limitations of mHealth strategies to remotely manage AF patients. Such mHealth infrastructures may be well suited within an integrated AF-clinic, which may require redesign of practice and reform of health care systems.

RESUMEN

The physical and social distancing measures that have been adopted worldwide because of COVID-19 will probably remain in place for a long time, especially for senior adults, people with chronic conditions, and other at-risk populations. Teleconsultations can be useful in ensuring that patients continue to receive clinical care while reducing physical crowding and avoiding unnecessary exposure of health care staff. Implementation processes that typically take months of planning, budgeting, pilot testing, and education were compressed into days. However, in the urgency to deal with the present crisis, we may be forgetting that the introduction of digital health is not exclusively a technological issue, but part of a complex organizational change problem. This viewpoint offers insight regarding issues that rapidly adopted teleconsultation systems may face in a post-COVID-19 world.

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: Managing patients during the coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, and the associated severe acute respiratory syndrome-related coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2) in particular, required the nimble responsiveness for which WOC nurses are known. Problem-solving skills were needed to continue the level of WOC nursing services expected by patients, families, and professional colleagues, while reducing the hours we were physically present at our clinical facility. In order to respond to these demands, our team realized it must create an innovative approach to provide efficient, cost-effective consultations during this global crisis. This Challenges in Practice article summarizes our experience with use of telemedicine technologies to perform remote consultations within the acute care setting. CASES: Case 1 was a 52-year-old woman with a history of paraplegia. She had several pressure injuries but had not received topical care for these wounds prior to admission. A consultation for the WOC nurse was requested and performed via telehealth services on a day our team was working off-site. This case illustrates the process our team used to perform a virtual consultation and demonstrates how the use of images placed in the electronic medical record aided in developing an effective plan of care. Case 2 was a 48-year-old man who tested positive for COVID-19. He developed bilateral unstageable pressure injuries on his cheeks after being placed in the prone position for a prolonged period while critically ill. This case describes multiple technologic platforms used for telemedicine consults in a patient with COVID-19 requiring isolation. CONCLUSIONS: Remote consultation by WOC nurses was possible in our healthcare system because of previous experience using telemedicine technology and well-established collaborative relationships with providers and bedside nurses. By expanding our use of telemedicine technology, we were able to provide ongoing care to a patient without COVID-19 who had WOC consultation needs, and a patient with strict isolation demands due to COVID-19.

RESUMEN

Purpose: Demographic change and lack of specialized workforces are challenging. Likewise, home visits by general practitioners (GPs) become rarer. If a nursing home resident develops acute symptoms, nurses are often inclined to call the rescue service. Besides patient-related consequences, this might lead to unnecessary hospitalization and far-reaching health economic costs. Due to legal restrictions of remote treatment in Germany, which were recently loosened, telemedicine is still in the early stages. The aim of this study was to employ a holistic telemedical system for nursing homes which facilitates the connection to a GP and thus avoids unnecessary hospitalizations in the case of ambulatory-sensitive illnesses. Materials and Methods: After an inter-professional requirement analysis, the iterative development was started. In addition to an audio-video connection, several point of care measurements were integrated. Finally, first field tests were performed in a nursing home in a rural area in Germany. Results: One nursing home was equipped with telemedical system based on the results of the requirement analysis and tele-medically connected to a GP. Over a period of seven months, 56 routine and emergency teleconsultations took place. Only one of those required a hospital admission. In addition to video telephony, electrocardiography and assessment of vitals such as pulse, blood pressure, oxygen saturation and auscultation of heart and lungs were applied frequently. Conclusion: A telemedical system including integrated medical devices was successfully developed and has turned out to be helpful and even necessary for careful and reliable decision-making by the GP. First test results show high acceptance for elderly care. Involved patients, nurses, and the GP itemize various specific benefits, including economic, personal, and altruistic issues. Another issue that the current COVID-19 crisis brought to light is lowering the risk of contagion; GPs can replace their home visits by using telepresence combined with point of care measures.

RESUMEN

Reforming the delivery of outpatient appointments (OPA) was high on the healthcare policy agenda prior to COVID-19. The current pandemic exacerbates the financial and associated resource limitations of OPA. Videoconsulting provides a safe method of real-time contact for some remotely residing patients with hospital-based clinicians. One factor in failing to move from introduction of service change to its general adoption may be lack of patient and public involvement. This project, based in the largest Island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland, aimed to codesign the use of the NHS Near Me video consulting platform for OPA to take place in the patient's home. A codesign model was used as a framework. This included: step 1-presenting a process flow map of the current system of using Near Me to public participants and establishing their ideas on various steps in the process, step 2-conducting numerous Plan, Do, Study, Act (PDSA) tests and creating a current process flow diagram based on learning and step 3-conducting telephone interviews and thematic analysis of transcripts (n=7) to explore participants' perceptions of being involved in the codesign process. Twenty-five adaptations were made to the Near Me at Home video appointment process from participants' PDSA testing. Four themes were identified from thematic analysis of participants' feedback of the codesign process, namely: altruistic motivation, valuing community voices, the usefulness of the PDSA cycles and the power of 'word of mouth'. By codesigning the use of Near Me with people living in a remote area of Scotland, multiple adaptations were made to the processes to suit the context in which Near Me at Home will be used. Learning from testing and adapting with the public will likely be useful for others embarking on codesign approaches to improve spread and sustainability of quality improvement projects.

RESUMEN

En la práctica asistencial de los farmacéuticos de hospital resulta imprescindible la utilización de las tecnologías de la información y comunicación en el ámbito de la Telefarmacia. Por lo tanto, la Sociedad Española de Farmacia Hospitalaria considera oportuno definir el término y condiciones de Telefarmacia y comunicar su posicionamiento institucional a través de este documento de posicionamiento: "La Telefarmacia es la práctica farmacéutica a distancia a través del uso de las tecnologías de la información y comunicación". La Telefarmacia incluye como principales actividades: validación terapéutica, documentación clínica, consulta de atención farmacéutica, monitorización terapéutica, seguimiento de la adherencia, formación/información sobre medicamentos, coordinación con profesionales sanitarios y evaluación de resultados en salud. Los procedimientos asistenciales en el ámbito de la Telefarmacia deben regirse por un Procedimiento Normalizado de Trabajo, con documentación en la historia clínica y sin discriminación de acceso a pacientes candidatos. Se consideran cuatro procedimientos principales de Telefarmacia: seguimiento farmacoterapéutico; información y/o formación a pacientes y cuidadores; coordinación con el equipo multidisciplinar a nivel intra y extrahospitalario; dispensación y entrega informada de medicamentos a distancia. La implantación de la Telefarmacia requiere adecuación de medios humanos (formación, capacitación) y tecnológicos (validación, interoperatividad, confidencialidad). Asimismo, debe dar cumplimiento a la legalidad y normativa vigente, tanto a nivel autonómico como estatal. Los procedimientos de Telefarmacia deben también ajustarse a las consideraciones éticas y los códigos deontológicos pertinentes. Debe fomentarse la evaluación de la Telefarmacia a través del uso de indicadores y de la investigación de su repercusión sobre los resultados en salud. Por tanto, la Sociedad Española de Farmacia Hospitalaria considera que la Telefarmacia es una herramienta complementaria y necesaria para la provisión de una Atención Farmacéutica Especializada con el objetivo final de mejorar los resultados en salud y maximizar la seguridad y satisfacción de los pacientes


The use of information and communication technologies have nowadays become part and parcel of hospital pharmacy practice. Against this background, it is hardly surprising that Telepharmacy has sparked the interest of a large number of stakeholders. In this respect, the Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy has developed a definition of the concept and outlined the conditions under which Telepharmacy should operate. It has also shared its institutional stance on the subject through a position statement that states that Telepharmacy is the provision of pharmaceutical care at a distance through information and communication technologies. Telepharmacy practice includes activities such as therapeutic validation, drafting of clinical documents, provision of pharmaceutical care, therapeutic follow-up, adherence monitoring, drug education and information, coordination between healthcare providers and evaluation of health outcomes. The clinical tasks performed as part of Telepharmacy practice must adhere to a standardized procedure and revolve around the patient's clinical record. Access to Telepharmacy must be provided without discrimination. The service comprises four main activities: pharmacotherapeutic follow-up; patient and caregiver-directed education and information-dissemination; coordination with healthcare providers from the same or different hospitals; and remote informed home drug delivery. Implementation of Telepharmacy requires an adjustment of human (training and capacity-building) and technological resources (validation, interoperability, confidentiality). It must also comply with the laws and regulations in force both at a regional and a national level. Telepharmacy procedures must also be adapted to the relevant ethical standards and codes of good practice. Appropriate indicators must be used to evaluate the performance of Telepharmacy and its impact on health outcomes. According to Spanish Society of Hospital Pharmacy Telepharmacy is a necessary complemetary tool to provide specialized pharmaceutical care and thereby improve health outcomes and maximize patient safety and satisfaction

RESUMEN

BACKGROUND: The COVID-19 pandemic forces sport and exercise medicine (SEM) physicians to think differently about the clinical care of patients. Many rapidly implement eHealth and telemedicine solutions specific to SEM without guidance on how best to provide these services. AIM: The aim of this paper is to present some guiding principles on how to plan for and perform an SEM consultation remotely (teleSEM) based on a narrative review of the literature. A secondary aim is to develop a generic teleSEM injury template. RESULTS: eHealth and telemedicine are essential solutions to effective remote patient care, also in SEM. This paper provides guidance for wise planning and delivery of teleSEM. It is crucial for SEM physicians, technology providers and organisations to codesign teleSEM services, ideally involving athletes, coaches and other clinicians involved in the clinical care of athletes, and to gradually implement these services with appropriate support and education. CONCLUSION: teleSEM provides solutions for remote athlete clinical care during and after the COVID-19 pandemic. We define two new terms-eSEM and teleSEM and discuss guiding principles on how to plan for and perform SEM consultations remotely (teleSEM). We provide an example of a generic teleSEM injury assessment guide.

RESUMEN

PRÉSENTATION SOMMAIRE DE LA DEMANDE: La Direction générale des programmes dédiés aux personnes, aux familles et aux communautés du MSSS a sollicité la Direction des services sociaux de l'INESSS afin de documenter les approches à favoriser auprès des patients nécessitant des soins psychiatriques et qui ont ou sont à risque d'avoir la COVID-19. MÉTHODOLOGIE: Question d'évaluation: Quelles sont les approches et interventions de soutien à privilégier auprès des personnes qui nécessitent des soins psychiatriques en milieu hospitalier et qui ont ou sont à risque d'avoir la COVID-19? Critères de sélection : personnes hospitalisées en psychiatrie ou qui nécessitent des soins en psychiatrie, tous types de documents (sauf presse écrite), 2005 à nos jours. Méthodes de recension : Recension sommaire de la littérature scientifique et de la littérature grise par deux professionnelles scientifiques de la Direction des services sociaux de l'INESSS. Cette recension ne repose pas sur une recherche exhaustive de la littérature et une évaluation de la qualité des études avec des outils standardisés. Recherche documentaire : Une stratégie documentaire visant à repérer tous les documents en lien avec la santé mentale et troubles mentaux et 1) le coronavirus, 2) autres virus, pandémie et épidémie et 3) autres catastrophes susceptibles de soulever des enjeux similaires. La recherche de la littérature grise a été effectuée dans Google/Google Scholar; les sites web d'agences en évaluation des technologies et autres organisations gouvernementales et sociétés savantes ont également été consultés. RÉSUMÉ SOMMAIRE DE LA LITTÉRATURE: Des informations sur les approches et interventions de soutien à privilégier auprès des personnes nécessitant des soins psychiatriques et qui ont ou sont à risque d'avoir la COVID-19 ont été repérées dans quelques documents. Les données recueillies portent davantage sur les précautions sanitaires à mettre en place auprès de ces personnes. Les données illustrent aussi l'interrelation entre les mesures de santé physique et les interventions portant sur la santé mentale des patients durant cette période de pandémie. PRINCIPAUX CONSTATS DE L'INESSS: Basé sur la littérature disponible au moment de sa rédaction, et tout en tenant compte des limites de la méthode de recension utilisée, l'INESSS est en mesure de dégager les constats suivants. L'actuelle pandémie exige une réorganisation des services pour assurer un soutien et une continuité de services aux personnes qui nécessitent des soins psychiatriques. En milieu hospitalier, il est suggéré d'aménager des espaces dédiés aux patients infectés ou en observation et d'individualiser la prise en charge et les activités cliniques dans les unités. Lors d'un transfert d'une unité psychiatrique à une unité de santé physique pour des raisons de santé, il est nécessaire d'offrir un accompagnement clinique au patient et de soutenir la collaboration interdisciplinaire entre les professionnels de la santé mentale et ceux de la santé physique. Les valeurs et les principes éthiques doivent guider la prise de décision clinique et organisationnelle et la collaboration entre les différentes disciplines et les organisations. L'enseignement concernant les mesures de prévention des risques d'infection et de contagion doit être offert de façon continue aux patients qui nécessitent des soins et des services psychiatriques. Le maintien des communications entre les patients hospitalisés en milieu psychiatrique et leurs proches doit être favorisé, en vue de les rassurer et de diminuer leur niveau d'anxiété et leur isolement. Plus de soutien psychologique doit être offert, notamment par une prise en charge individuelle, en présentiel, pour réduire les risques de détresse psychologique élevée, les risques de psychose ainsi que les demandes de services en urgence. Les patients à haut risque doivent être identifiés pour éviter un passage à l'acte ou un comportement impulsif. Il est important de leur assurer un suivi et de demeurer à l'affût des besoins d'hospitalisation. Pour les patients nécessitant des soins psychiatriques qui sont suivis à l'externe : L'équipe traitante doit demeurer alerte à l'instabilité et aux besoins d'hospitalisation, le cas échéant; o La continuité des soins doit être assurée par téléconsultation ou par téléphone, ou en présentiel lorsque la condition de la personne l'exige. Un soutien doit être offert aux patients pour les aider à gérer leur stress, ou leur détresse, et éviter l'aggravation de leurs symptômes psychiatriques.
