Publication Detail
JUMP Valuation Tool for Patient Stratification Strategies
Abstract
New stratification strategies offer exciting opportunities to further personalize treatment, providing important new avenues to target resources. The JUMP project represented a TSB-funded inter-disciplinary, collaboration between academia, the NHS, and industry to develop such a strategy involving the introduction of a rapid turnaround diagnostics service for Hepatitis C patients in the NHS. The service involves Hep C patients coming in to have their blood samples taken and have a consultation on the basis of their blood results, during a single appointment slot. Clinicians using this services are able to make more informed treatment decisions because they have access to current diagnostics information on a patient’s viral load count that is valuable in stratifying patients according to their response to (triple therapy) treatment. This website provides the public access to some of the tools we developed to map the potential economic, clinical, and logistical issues associated with the implementation of rapid turnaround diagnostics services. The downloadable tools will be helpful for healthcare providers to: Calculate savings associated the implementation of rapid turnaround testing for individual Hep C treatment centers based on the specific characteristics of individual centers and their patient populations. Run scenarios to assess potential savings associated with other changes to the management of Hep C clinics. Assess changes in patient waiting times and flows associated with the implementation of rapid turnaround testing based on specific characteristics of clinic and served patient population.
