Clinical Assessment Toolkit
Reduce overspend across your service
It’s no secret that local authorities across the country are exceeding their budgets year on year, with over prescription of particular community equipment products contributing to this. The Clinical Assessment Toolkit aims to reduce this overspend for council’s nationwide.
Initially the toolkit was devised for an area where expenditure was constantly high - pressure care, however toolkits have also been created for cushions, seating, beds and key safes. Working with specialists in pressure care our team developed an equipment selection process that works with the use of an innovative RAG (Red, Amber, Green) scheme, designed to aid clinical judgement in the holistic assessment of service user needs.
After an assessment takes place downgrading service users whom no longer need high-level pressure care products can occur, aiming to dramatically reduce current expenditure in that area of the service.
