Driving insight: a patient transport resource modelling tool
Helping you to plan NEPTS commissioning
Our patient transport resource modelling tool is a completely free resource for commissioners and procurement managers to understand their procurement needs for patient transport.
ERS Medical is a UK market leader in designing Non-Emergency Patient Transport Service (NEPTS) solutions. We make hundreds of thousands of journeys a year and we have leveraged our dataset to create a tool that can accurately forecast the NEPTS resource requirement in your area.
Supporting your NEPTS resource planning
Our patient transport resource modelling tool can support Clinical Commissioning Groups and Trusts looking to procure patient transport. Use our tool to:
- Benchmark data sets
- Create/benchmark financial envelopes
- Benchmark provider operating models
For Clinical Commissioning Groups and Trusts looking to improve current NEPTS services, the patient transport modelling tool can benchmark existing provider operating models.
Understanding the impact of COVID-19
Taking in the size, type and geography of your service, the tool calculates the COVID-19 impact by service type, estimating the number of extra drivers and ambulances required.
We have added variables to account for the impact of measures relating to COVID-19, including:
- Time taken to accommodate additional infection prevention and control (IPC) measures
- Changes in efficiency due to shielding and Covid-19-postive patients needing to travel alone
- Changes in efficiency due to social distancing requirements in vehicles
Webinar about getting NEPTS procurement right
We had a great conversation with several NHS procurement professionals at our recent webinar, “Getting NEPTS procurement right: the role of modelling and insight”. Andrew Pooley, Managing Director and Jeroen Van Os, Finance Director at ERS Medical discussed the background behind why we developed our patient transport resource modelling tool, the model it is built on, and the different ways it can be used to bring insight into the procurement process at local, regional, and national levels.
