Understanding key issues
Correct patient referral
When a patient rings 111 or presents at an urgent care facility, it can be hard to advise the most appropriate care pathway without full access to the patient’s medical history.
Unpredictable level of calls
Patients seeking care are hard to predict making preparation difficult. This increases the pressure on staff and the risk to the patients.
No access to GP records
Patients attending emergency care services are often in pain and distressed. They may be unable to provide a full and accurate description of their medical history.
Meeting changing standards
The standards for the urgent and emergency care services are becoming stricter to ensure patients receive the highest standard of care.
How Adastra can help you
FEATURES & BENEFITS
Timing is key in urgent care, every second makes a difference, which is why Adastra lets you view and send information in seconds.
Access to GP records
Adastra uses the Medical Interoperability Gateway (MIG) to provide clinicians with real-time views of a patient’s GP record at the point of care.
Emergency data compliance
Adastra provides automated submissions, which ensure all the necessary patient data is collected and compliant with the Emergency Care Data Set (ECDS).
Integration with GP Connect
Adastra has been integrated with GP Connect enabling emergency care providers to view important information about a patient e.g. encounters, allergies, medications and referrals.
Making processes simpler
The urgent care setting is stressful enough without overly complicated processes, Adastra makes episodes of care quick and easy.
Handling episodes of care
Adastra allows clinicians to quickly and accurately assess the patient’s condition and refer them efficiently onto the most appropriate care pathway.
Adastra includes an embedded Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) solution, making it quicker and easier for a clinician to prescribe medication for a patient to collect locally.
Reporting and analytics tools
Adastra provides valuable reporting and analytics. It can report on National Quality Requirements (NQRs), Minimum Data Set (MDS) and information from various other dashboards.
By being integrated with other service organisations, can give their patients a more seamless journey of care.
Adastra provides customisable workflow and prioritised case lists that fully integrate with the 111 service. This enables 111 calls to be transferred to an Urgent Treatment Centre.
Send information to GPs
Adastra enables clinicians to record information about an episode of care and send further details to the patient’s GP ensuring continuity of care.
Adastra enables 111 call handers to prioritise, and efficiently and urgently dispatch ambulances, only when necessary, without delay to the patient.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What is Adastra software?
Adastra is a highly flexible patient management solution designed to support the specific and unique requirements of urgent and unscheduled care.

- How has clinical patient management adapted to Covid-19?
The Adastra Clinical Team has created two new case question sets, which can be used to pre-assess and advise patients for Covid19. We have extended Adastra to help NHS patients through the current crisis by providing a sophisticated overspill / queuing system for those calling NHS 111. We have also introduced a video consult solution to Adastra to reduce face-to-face contact.
