Nurse-led clinics

INRstar was developed to help healthcare professionals safely manage anticoagulation patients and provide advanced support for nurse-led clinics in both primary and secondary care.

Our clinical team works hard to ensure INRstar complies with the European Medical Device Directive (93/42/EEC), so that you can meet your clinical risk assessment obligations.

Role based permissions

Many of the services using INRstar run nurse-led clinics. The nurses running the clinics are highly skilled and manage patients and clinics effectively requesting consultant help when needed.

The clinically risk assessed, role-based permissions in INRstar give you greater control of user access and efficient allocation of workload between staff of different skill levels.

INRstar also supports you to:

  • Implement centrally managed clinical protocols for consistency across multiple providers (Clinical Leads only)
  • Audit every detail input into INRstar
  • Use approved and published algorithms and diagnoses for improved patient safety and clinical risk management
  • Customise and configure the clinical settings, including diagnoses (Clinical Leads only)

“Our clinics are entirely nurse-led and our GPs tend not to get involved in the day to day running of the service, unless there is an abnormal result. The Clinical Lead is responsible for putting together the protocols and supervising the daily clinics to ensure everything is running as it should be. The clinic started off with around 40 patients and we now have around 200, which we expect to go up even further due to new guidelines recommending anticoagulation. Using INRstar has transformed our daily working practice, not least because we wouldn’t have been able to cope with the increasing number of patients using our previous process.”

INRstar removes the need for us to have to seek out further medical approval for the majority of dosing as we don’t have to bother doctors to check complex dosing decisions. Andrew McSorley, Lead Anticoagulation Nurse, Royal Cornwall Hospital
