Hospital Acquired Thrombosis (HAT) assessment
Our new electronic Hospital Acquired Thrombosis (HAT) assessment for patients is on target to achieve a 50% reduction in preventable HAT cases.
The electronic tool helps prevent HAT by early, standardised assessment and reassessment, with links to policy and risk prevention measures.
For patients this means:
- Reduced risk of developing thrombosis whilst in hospital
- Faster diagnosis and quicker treatment
- Earlier discharge from hosptial and less chance of readmission
- Fewer unnecessary or inappropriate tests, treatments or medication
- Safer care
