The One Stop Clinic model was devised to speed up patient diagnosis and treatment by incorporating diagnostic imaging input within the outpatient department. In the traditional model a patient must pass through a minimum of 3 appointments before receiving their treatment.
First appointment (consultation)-second appointment (Imaging)-Third appointment ( consultation to decide treatment)- fourth appointment (treatment)
Time lapses between each appointment for administrative tasks and standard processing to take place. The one stop clinic reduces unnecessary outpatient appointments reduce the time waiting for patients improving the care pathway and experience.
We offer One Stop Clinic solutions to improve patient care and speed up the treatment.
