Clinical decision support solution

Services providing advice and care pathways can suffer from high call volume, large numbers of patients with varying presenting complaints and overstretched resources.

Our solution has been designed to help deliver the best possible clinical advice to your patients. We work with over 250 urgent care providers, enabling clinical and non-clinical staff to triage patients across a variety of services, including GP surgeries, community pharmacies, ambulance services and NHS 111 providers.

How can it help you?

Advice that suits the patient
We realise the importance of providing smart, safe clinical triage when delivering urgent and unplanned care. Patients who contact a health service are looking for fast, detailed advice, which can help them make decisions about the best care pathway to suit their needs.

Safe and effective
The intuitive layout and rich clinical content allows clinicians and call handlers to make safe, informed decisions about patient triage.

Clinical triage for ambulance services
When used in ambulance services, our solution allows call handlers and clinicians to have the confidence to prioritise use of emergency resources for serious and life- threatening cases, which helps cut down on unnecessary ambulance journeys.

Key features

Our solution can be used by clinically qualified staff or non-clinical users across a wide range of health and care services.

We’ve tested our technology against other clinical decision support solutions within the market, and our solution consistently comes out on top. The way our solution guides the clinician through the triage process mirrors the way real-life clinicians provide a care pathway.

Patient self-assessment

Patients can take ownership of their own care pathway by using our online and app-based self-assessment tools, which helps patients make their own informed decisions. This keeps them from calling stretched emergency services if they could receive better care elsewhere.

Reliable, varied clinical content

The NICE-accredited clinical content is continually being reviewed by our in-house team of clinical professionals, who work in a variety of clinical specialties. Their input and continued support allows us to develop and maintain our technology to include in-depth ‘question sets’ for specific complaints, such as mental health and sepsis.

System integration

Odyssey can integrate with a number of host applications for patient management, meaning implementation with your existing system is easy, and there is no need to learn a whole new system. This integration capability is also what allows our solution to work across a variety of settings, from community pharmacies to NHS 111.

"Systems like Odyssey provide us with all the support and information we need to be able to make decisions safely for our patients. Without them more patients would be unnecessarily taken to hospital, which is inconvenient for them and the wider NHS."
Neil Spencer, Service Improvement Manager, East Midlands Ambulance Service (EMAS)

Odyssey ensures we deliver safe, effective clinical advice and connect patients with the most appropriate care."
Andrew Slater, Chief Executive Officer, Homecare Medical Ltd. (New Zealand)
