About NHS

The National Health Service is the publicly funded healthcare system for England. It is the largest and the oldest single-payer healthcare system in the world.

How we made a difference

  • The Problem

    NHS PRASE required an intuitive and engaging data capture system that non technical hospital volunteers could use to record patients' opinions about the quality of their care during a residential period on a hospital ward.

  • The Solution

    With the aid of UX workshops The Distance produced an intuitive app solution to allow the users to easily capture data by the patients bedside. With a direct (and offline synchronised) connection to The Core, frequent, visual insight reports that are generated into PDF format are emailed to the necessary ward staff.

  • The Result

    NHS staff have been able to replace cumbersome laptops with highly portable iPads and with an extremely accessible UX volunteers have been able to utilise the app to support the general improvement of ward conditions around the hospital wards of a number of NHS trusts.
