This resource provides support to clinical teams and organisations that are looking for digital tools that support the delivery of patient pathways. We concentrate on cancer pathways and how to share diagnostics and deliver monitoring and support to patients. We welcome feedback on the playbooks, including ideas for further case studies.

Monitor patients’ conditions remotely and support patients as they live with and beyond cancer
Digital tools to support patients self-management and remote clinics with the use of, for example, self-monitoring tools, chemotherapy toxicity management tools, patient initiated follow-up (PIFU) and active surveillance of patients to reduce any unnecessary follow up appointments on a cancer pathway.
A digital follow-up care model providing remote monitoring to reduce the need for unnecessary hospital appointments for patients
The Southampton-led model aims to provide patients timely access to test results. The prostate model has been replicated across 15 hospitals and continues to develop the service for other tumour groups and non-cancer long-term conditions.
An evaluation tool to embed assurance of delivery of best practice radiotherapy for lung cancer patients
Lung cancer treatment using advanced stereotactic ablative arc radiotherapy. It requires a complex planning process and highly accurate delivery and results in ablation of tumour with minimal harm to other tissues.
Breast Pathway Management solution is in use by teams at North Manchester General Hospital (part of the Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust)
Trust benefits from a toolkit to combine clinical solutions and enable access to real-time information to support clinical decision-making and patient care.
