12:40pm Towards 2020…PTS and LHDs working together to meet the future needs of our customers
Ensuring Patient Transport Service (PTS) is well placed to meet the future needs of our patients and customers is the aim of the Towards 2020 Program, an ambitious two-year improvement program.
In April 2019, after five years in operation, PTS reviewed its baseline performance and assessed short and long-term opportunities to improve patient safety, experience and flow; increase productivity and ensure financial sustainability. The review identified five areas of improvement.
To implement these improvements, PTS will undertake 15 initiatives over two years. Collaboration with Local Health Districts (LHDs), the largest stakeholder of PTS services, is essential to the success of five of these initiatives:
- Streamlining Transport Across Health Service (STAHS)
- Leverage LHD patient transit lounge
- Develop alternative service delivery models for low acuity D and E class trips
- Continue to work on multi-patient transfer opportunities
- Develop proactive booking management
PTS and Illawarra Shoalhaven LHD are already working to implement these improvement initiatives with all other LHDs expected to follow in the coming year.

1:20pm MIE no longer MIA: Update on the EnableNSW Mechanical In-Exsufflation pilot
The inability to cough out lung secretions is a major cause of morbidity, hospital admissions and mortality in people with a neuromuscular disorder or spinal cord injury. Mechanical In-exsufflation (MIE) devices can assist these people to more effectively clear secretions and to minimise chest wall stiffness.
Working with clinicians from across seven pilot sites, the EnableNSW Clinical Advisors are continuing a pilot to determine the feasibility of introducing paediatric and adult funding criteria for home MIE. The pilot criteria was co-designed with physiotherapists, physicians, nurses, carers and MIE users. To date 39 people have been accepted for the pilot. Final data collection on patient and carer experience, as well as health care utilisation will occur by December 2019.
Prior to commencing home MIE, one hospital admission per year is common among this group of people, with some reporting up to four admissions per year. At the six month mark we are already getting positive reports of improved quality of life or less hospital admissions. Taking into account the cost of the MIE device, we estimate a health saving of over $22,000 with the prevention of each admission.
With broader demand for MIE in NSW becoming clearer, it is expected that information and outcome measures from the pilot will shape future recommendations to seek endorsement for long term funding.

1:30pm Mid-Meal SNACKS - Redesigning Mid-Meal Safety, Nutritional Accuracy and Compliance, Knowledge and Satisfaction
A hot cup of tea and a biscuit can be a creature comfort for patients when they are feeling poorly. However, with the introduction of the nutrition standards and the ever increasing complexity of patients' dietary needs, what was previously a simple tea run has now become a more multifaceted mid-meal service. My Food Choice introduced improvements in the main meal service and now it's time for Mid-Meal SNACKS to do the same for mid-meals. Join us to hear about the journey so far.
