Virtual MSK MDT

by Niel Kang | 6 months ago | in Planned and Elective Care
Horizon 2

There are so many points within a patient’s MSK pathway that can be enhanced with a virtual MDT from:

A) Advice & guidance from primary care - triage to correct subspecialty (e.g. spine v shoulder or hip,) 

B) Assess need for imaging / neurophysiology/ gait analysis pre consultation.

C) need for surgical outpatient at all in very elderly or significant comorbidities 

D) Advice & guidance in secondary care e.g rheumatology to orthopaedics; orthopaedics to pain team; anaesthetics and orthogeriatricians to orthopaedics in frail and elderly patients with co morbidities wanting surgery. 

E) advice and guidance for secondary to tertiary care with complex / revision cases within hospitals and in between hospitals 

F) orthopaedics to radiology to ensure optimal imaging and patient flow

G) post operative follow up by nurse / physiotherapy freeing up more time for new patient assessments & reducing journeys / carbon offsetting at multiple points.

H) joint Arthroplasty classes preoperatively and postoperatively

Agree with your thoughts on this. We need to re-look at the whole MSK system and see where we can improve things. We could make the whole process much more efficient for people.
