One Stop Clinic modell för karpaltunnelsyndrom behandling

Jag har haft tid att fundera över "One Stop Clinic" modellen som med framgång har lanserats i Storbritannien. Prinsessan Anne från The Royal Family bekantade sig med Blue Sky Orthopaedics One Stop Clinic i Leicester.

Den innovativa hälsovårdsprocessen har utvecklats för att minska köerna till karpaltunnel diagnostik och behandling. Mediracer möjliggör en distribution av CTS-diagnostiken och One Stop Clinic modellen manifesteras i hur Blue Sky Orthopaedics har organiserat allt till en plats.

Man kan jämföra OSC-modellen med ett tandläkarbesök. Ett litet team kan effektivt utför hela processen på ett och samma ställe.

"The British-Finnish CTS-collaboration has produced excellent results. As you know, princess Anne from the Royal family visited the 'CTS One-Stop Clinic' run by Blue Sky Orthopaedic. Their service has received high-profile attention for an innovative approach including nerve conduct testing and surgery at the same clinic. But we as an organization have tons of work to do to get this message to general practitioners, hospital and health care administrators and occupational health service providers," Seppo Nevalainen explains.

Så här sammanfattar Blue Sky Orthopaedic sin verksamhet på sin hemsida.

Blue Sky Orthopaedic Ltd arose as a direct result of the success of the Carpal Tunnel Service set up in Leicester, UK in 1999.

The service, specializing in Carpal Tunnel Syndrome was an overwhelming success, leading to interest from other centres that wanted to duplicate the service. The group of clinicians, Malcom Clarke, Chris Kershaw, Tim Green, Martyn Newey and Pankaj Pathak felt they could offer something unique.

A more formal organisation was required and so Blue Sky Orthopaedic was set up in December 2003, to provide surgical and medical services.
