Click Symptoms Ltd is a health information technology company. We are committed to supporting healthcare practitioners by providing digital solutions which reduce wasteful expenditure and time, in both operational and clinical healthcare, thereby improving the quality and safety of patient care.
For most countries, healthcare waste accounts for 10% or more of the total healthcare budget. For example, the US wastes over a trillion dollars of its healthcare expenditure annually. Click Symptoms’ expert system helps to reduce wasteful expenditure in healthcare by taking cost out of delivering both primary and secondary care, and in the health insurance industry.
It does this by helping medical practitioners make the most accurate patient condition diagnosis at the point of consultation and then informing them of the most effective treatment pathway for that condition. Professor Ernest Schilders, an internationally renowned orthopaedic surgeon, developed the concept of Click Symptoms for use in musculoskeletal conditions and his work has been supported by the combined clinical expertise of some of the UK’s leading musculoskeletal practitioners.
The musculoskeletal module was the first to be developed because these conditions account for around 30% of all GP appointments. The second most common conditions leading to appointments in primary care are related to mental health, and the mental health module will be completed in 2019. Further condition modules are also under construction.
The software developed by Click Symptoms delivers evidence or consensus-based medicine into routine medical practice at all levels, thus improving patient care. There is clear evidence that the use of evidence-based pathways reduces the risk of waste in spending on unnecessary procedures. The system assists with diagnosis and identifying the appropriate care pathway of musculoskeletal conditions using algorithms, symptom analysis, clinical guidelines and expert knowledge. By using Click Symptoms’ technology, operational and clinical waste can be identified and eliminated prospectively from the system.
