Spotlight Beta Testing Starts Collecting Real World Evidence

Updated: Sep 7, 2020

Spotlight underpinned by the Kaleidoscope Model of Care (KALMOD) began its beta testing last week in the next step to reducing healthcare professional burnout and improving routine care for people with chronic conditions.

Burnout amongst HCPs is a key challenge affecting healthcare practice, safety and quality of care. It is estimated that more than half of US physicians experience substantial symptoms of burnout, with burnout almost twice as prevalent among physicians as US workers in other fields. Nurses experience a similarly high prevalence of burnout and depression, with 43% reporting high degrees of emotional exhaustion. Spotlight reduces the burden on HCPs by providing clarity to patient facilitators and barriers to disease self-management. This enables greater collaboration between HCPs and their patients, meeting NICE guidelines for patient-centred care.
