The project undertaken at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital UK aims to streamline the current paper-based practices in the Ponseti Clinic. The vision is to capture the maximum number of clubfoot patients (nationally) to monitor and report progress and success of the Ponseti casting treatment. The database based on the cityEHR toolkit will act as an audit tool. The London and Manchester sites will pilot the database with the aim to roll it out to the maximum number of Ponseti clinics across the UK and Internationally.
The conference was attended by specialist clinicians and charity representatives. This provided an excellent opportunity to discuss the ways in which we can make cityEHR toolkit accessible to international clubfoot clinics (especially in Africa and Asia). Several charities expressed a great interest in providing the toolkit and the model to international clinics through their websites.
