Patients are now able to complete their IMPARTS screening remotely on their personal device, up to 24 hours before their outpatient or virtual appointment.
e-IMPARTS: completing the IMPARTS screening remotely
In 2020, we’re putting the “e” in “e-IMPARTS” by making the screening available to patients outside clinics, and in their homes. e-IMPARTS is currently being piloted in a number of clinics at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust and King’s College Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, launching more widely across our partnership as soon as piloting is complete.
Patients will have the option to complete their IMPARTS screening remotely on their own personal device, up to 24 hours before their appointment in clinic. Patients will no longer need to be based at a clinic to complete their screening information, giving them more time to fill in the questionnaires, with the option to do it in the comfort and privacy of their own home.
To access the screening, patients will be sent a link in their appointment reminder text message, giving them more time to complete the survey than before. Of course, if patients prefer to complete the IMPARTS screening in clinic, that option will still remain open.
Talking about the move to e-IMPARTS, Jessie McCulloch, Senior Project Manager in the IMPARTS team at King’s Health Partners said:
“Giving patients the opportunity to complete the IMPARTS screening remotely is a really positive step. Patients now have the freedom to answer personal questions about their health and wellbeing in their own time and wherever they choose on their personal devices. This will allow their consultation to be a focused conversation on what matters to them.”
