MacMillan vMDT project

logoWe are pleased to announce our recent collaboration with the MacMillan Cancer Support and the Christie NHS Foundation Trust in the provision of a new secure on-line advisory forum.

Following cancer treatment, some people require long-term support which can be complex in nature.  In order to provide expert advice from a range of specialists, the MacMillan virtual multi-disciplinary team (vMDT) platform has been created to facilitate this.

The new vMDT platform developed by Asckey Data Services is a secure, user-friendly online forum providing healthcare professionals quick and easy access to multi-specialist advice for patients with complex or severe chronic symptoms following cancer treatment. The aim is to improve the outcomes and quality of life for people experiencing these issues.

Healthcare professionals who refer their patients to the vMDT will receive a response within two weeks, helping shared decision making regarding future care.

Healthcare professionals can select which advice to follow and maintain responsibility for their patient throughout. Referrals to the vMDT will be accepted from UK wide oncology teams. The system is due to go live before the end of the year.
