What We Do
We mainly manage long term conditions (such as Diabetes, CVD, COPD and Mental Health) in a personalised and integrated way via a model of care based on collaboration and innovation that is centred on prevention and continuity of care (through what we call ‘care packages’).
By organisationally re configuring its back office system (with a special focus applied to the communicational infrastructure and information management) by centralising core administrative functions in relation to how these diseases are organisationally managed – thus streamlining the entire mechanism and optimising efficiency savings, whilst providing structured patient centered care. This has helped EEHN remove the stark variability that existed before between practice operations and has also helped EEHN to accurately measure and manage performance.
Through collaborative and cost effective acquisition of resources. EEHN does this by pooling resources centrally from each member practice to acquire resources (staff/consumables). This provides significant cost savings and means more resources can be used in a flexible way to meet demand quickly and efficiently.
Though integrated and evidence based clinical service provision. Our care plans/health checks/reviews have been organised so that a) it is patient centric b) built on building a long term/trusting relationships and c) addresses wider determinants of health. Our care plans are focused on treating the patient and not just the disease. Our ethos is centered on empowering patients by building self management skills.
A key aspect of what EEHN does is patient/public engagement. This is done by holding various events/outreach activities (namely open days) which are centred on early intervention, as its focused on prevention with the aim of empowering patients with knowledge & awareness. These events also try to address health inequalities and unmet needs so that all patients receive the best possible care.
