Insights Bulletin: Transforming diagnostic services through Xyla
Acacium Group has its origins as a provider of flexible staffing to the NHS. Over time, we have worked closely with the NHS diagnostic services into which we place those staff to identify whether – through the use of technology – the staff time can be deployed in smarter ways. This technology-enabled approach has unlocked three key benefits:
- Helping match local demand for diagnostic services to the available supply of staff (including those who can offer services remotely)
- Increasing diagnostic throughput, both by reducing unsuitable referrals to specialists and then supporting those specialists to make decisions in the most efficient way possible
- Enabling flexible working to extend the careers of skilled staff working in diagnostic services
Our approach has now been brought together in ‘Xyla’. Xyla offers a wide range of CQC-registered services, including virtual dermatology clinics, ECG patch monitoring at home and community diagnostic hubs ‘plus’.
