Hi Lynn,

My Trust have successfully deployed VP nurse and are in preparation of rolling out VP doctor (closing the loop will follow later). Where are you in deployment process?

Shrewsbury and Telford would be interested to learn if anyone is successfully using VP Doctor and how easy users find it to use.

Hi. This latest version of VP Doctor is much improved and the added functionality of VTE assessments and invasive line insertions is a big bonus. We have had this module for quite some time but never quite got 'closing the loop' off the ground due to initial technical issues and then struggling with engagement. Early versions were seen to be of limited benefit to users but the enhancements are helping to change this thinking.

We're presently testing v3.1 with plans to roll out VP doctor soon after. I understand we had glitch between VP and Medway, that didn't keep track of changes of consultant in Medway - which would stop VP doctor to a degree. 

So no-ones using closing the loop yet?

We have re localised to V3.2 due to problems when testing v3.1 which were not fixed so we did not ever use that version and remain on v2 at the moment.We have also localised the ED module for our Trust but again now have to wait for delivery of v 3.2 for user acceptance testing and roll out to the wards before testing the ED module. We would be grateful for any feedback from anyone further down this path.

We would also like to begin using vp Doctor once we start using v3.2 and would be grateful for any feedback from Trusts using this.

 I only ever heard of 1 Trust who used closing the loop and they had to bleep the Doctors to let them know to access their devices due to loss of connectivity and no automatic reconnection
