Ardens is a clinical decision support and workflow optimisation solution that is currently being used in over 2,560 GP practices.
Standardised clinical templates offering national and localised best practice guidance and accurate coding of clinical data covering many clinical areas to save time during consultations and ensure all clinicians whether they are GPs, nurse practitioners, or paramedics are following the same national and local clinical guidelines. This includes multi-morbidity templates to assist with the management of complex patients with multiple medical conditions.
Searches and reporting based on national and local contract requirements to assist practices, PCNs, or CCGs with monitoring performance (both on an individual basis and aggregate reports across multiple sites). This includes Ardens Manager, our cloud-based analytics platform, that offers advanced reporting for individual practices, PCNs, and CCGs.
Clinical safety alerts and reports based on MHRA and NICE guidance that are updated regularly as new guidance is published. Practices that have had CQC inspections often receive “outstanding” ratings for clinical safety when our alerts and searches are installed.
Data quality reports and alerts warn clinicians when an incorrect diagnostic clinical code has been used. These are updated as national guidance or coding requirements change.
