NHS Organisation

  • Appian as a low code platform for referral and case management workflows
  • Intelligent document processing to extract data from documents
  • Rules engine for automatic referral routing based on clinical rules

Outcome

  • Dramatic reduction in staff required to run the service
  • Shortening of end-to-end cycle time
  • Fully automated, reducing errors and improving MI
