SME of the Week: EIDO

Phil Evans, Director of Partnerships at EIDO Healthcare, gives us the lowdown on EIDO’s digital consent platform.

About EIDO:

Our mission at EIDO Healthcare is to advance patient-centred care around informed consent to treatment, by enhancing the clinician-patient relationship. We produce trusted digital consent solutions which assist health professionals in improving the clinician-patient relationship, increasing patient satisfaction and reducing the risk of litigation.

We are proud to say that over 65% of all NHS hospitals and over 85% of all acute private hospitals are clients of EIDO, in addition to our growing global network of distributors and clients across five continents. This widespread coverage sees EIDO’s solutions deployed in over 1,000 hospitals and supporting over eight million informed consent decisions annually.

How it works:

Our trusted digital consent platform brings together the best content, systems and processes into one user-friendly solution which optimises the consent process, improves clinical efficiency, and enhances patient engagement, understanding and outcomes.  In addition, we’re able to reduce consent-related litigation by evidencing a clinically robust process.

Our solutions are purchased directly by hospitals, Trusts, Health Boards and healthcare organisations of all shapes and sizes.  However, in the last few years, we have seen digital healthcare continuing to be driven by collaborative working and interoperability, meaning that EIDO’s trusted consent is being increasingly integrated into third-party healthcare technology systems – an exciting development for us.

Additionally, we have an extensive library of treatment-specific, peer-reviewed patient consent information, which is approved by the Royal College of Surgeons of England, the NHS England Information Standard and the Patient Information Forum.

With over 20 years of expertise, we are proud that EIDO has become the UK standard in trusted, evidence-based patient information, now being delivered through intuitive digital solutions.

EIDO’s experience with DigitalHealth.London:

Although we are only four months into our time on the DigitalHealth.London Accelerator programme, we are already seeing tangible benefits.  The tailored support, expertise and professional networks which the DigitalHealth.London team can draw on are invaluable.  We very much look forward to our remaining time on the programme, as we continue to build on our reputation as a credible player in the digital health ecosystem.
