Lucy Cassidy is quickly becoming a well-known name in the world of IT in Healthcare. In August 2013, Cassidy launched the Virtual Fracture Clinic in Brighton – an alternative for outpatient treatment which enables self-care from the home. Since launching, the Virtual Fracture Clinic has managed over 10,000 patients and reduced outpatient appointments by 57%. Cassidy’s solution has saved the NHS over £750,000 – and this is only the beginning. In late 2017, AlfaPeople was invited to partner with Cassidy for the next phase of development in the Virtual Fracture Clinic – including a mobile app and expansion of services.
We decided to interview Cassidy and find out more about the project and how it will transform the outpatient experience. Here’s what she had to say.
