Current tender is twofold:
1 / Blood deposits at home of oncological day patients.
In the context of a lean project, started at the Day Clinic Oncology, a system was established that eliminated the moment of blood collection and day of chemotherapy.
The purpose was to reduce waiting time for the patient and, on the other hand, to streamline the organization at the day clinic to achieve a better use of the treatment facilities and the staff.
In the current test setting, the patient was asked to come to ZOL on 2 separate days.
This assignment is part of the further evolution of the above project.On the day the patient goes to ZOL, treatment can be started immediately.
For this, an external partner is sought, which, in consultation with the services of Oncology and Clinical Biology, can further realize this.
Practical completion:The candidates for this project use these numbers to propose their completion of this project.
In the current setting, at least 80 patients per week should be included in the project - divided as follows:
- monday: 20 patients are visited in the morning + 20 in the afternoon;
- Tuesday: 20 patients;
- Wednesday: 20 patients.
The patients live within the boundaries of the province of Limburg.
The classification of the patients per day is based on the treatment.
- A venous blood drop or via port-a-cath according to the requirements of the laboratory clinical biology ZOL and with the materials made available by the ZOL.It may also be taken electronically, processed and delivered to the requesting doctor, if the provider has the opportunity to do so. The samples must be transported correctly, taking into account the temperature at which the samples should be transported and, in general, the legislation on the transport of infectious substances.
2 / Blood deposits at home / rest home - no oncological patients.Usually at the request of a GP.
Blood deposits can occur within a 15 km periphery around the ZOL.
Practical completion:In exceptional cases via a port-a-cath.
The maximum allowed time between call logging and blood collection is being negotiated at a later stage.A blood reduction can of course also be by appointment with the 3 hour limit being exceeded.
It will (certainly in the beginning) concern a very limited number of blood drops in the municipality of Genk and neighboring municipalities.
Actions:Exceptional via port-a-cath.
