Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust: Red2Green case study


Communication and engagement pack focusing the multidisciplinary ward teams on identifying what is necessary to progress patients' care today.

In March 2018, teams from three ward areas across two different directorates at Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust worked together to design and implement a Red2Green pilot. Members of the multidisciplinary team from each area, including consultants, ward clerks, nurses, therapists and transfer of care nurses came together, supported by members of the Organisational Development Team, Technology Transformation Team and Information Services Team. This proved to be a very successful way to engage teams in the design of changes that affect them. 

The teams designed the Red2Green process and flow chart and decided which technological changes would support the pilot and the data set that they would find useful.

Early results show a significant reduction in the weekly average length of stay on two pilot wards, diabetes and endocrine and geriatric medicine, by 3.3 and 5.6 days, respectively.
