Streamlining care

We help health and social care organisations streamline caregiving by empowering patients with personalised travel plans, tailored wayfinding and viable sustainable travel choices.

Improve patient access, signposting and experience whilst reducing carbon emissions, missed appointments, and patient anxiety.

In 2022, Did Not Attend (DNA) outpatient appointments cost the NHS approximately £1billion and DNA GP appointments costs the NHS an estimated £421million.

The ‘You. Smart. Thing’ travel assistant is a revolutionary digital tool which delivers measurable outcomes to improve patient attendance and enables Service Providers to manage patient flow and reduce carbon emissions when visiting.

Social Prescription

‘You. Smart. Thing.’ provides an easily adopted platform for the streamlined integration of existing care systems and processes, with public and private transport services. This enables the facilitation of innovative ‘social prescription’ partnerships by promoting tailored routes and active travel options to and from community hubs, matched to people’s specific care needs and circumstances.

Improved Accessibility

Our patient-centred journey plans and travel assistant features support people with hidden or visible disabilities. From highlighting accessible entrances to travel updates provided by email and SMS, or accessed by phone, our technology helps facilities and service managers make planning travel to and from health and care facilities stress-free, reliable and as easy as possible.

Towards Net-Zero

You capture and learn from real patient travel data. The service reveals where people are traveling from, and critically, how. We forecast travel impact, enabling the promotion of sustainable options to support travel policy and net-zero targets. Promoting Park & Ride to alleviate stress on parking capacity and restrictions at peak times, for example, improves air quality and visitor flow.
