The Improving Elective Care Coordination for Patients Programme is one of the two main Foundry pilots. It supports trusts to effectively deliver care through care coordination.

The Chelsea and Westminster pilot has so far achieved these benefits:

- 79% of patients on waiting lists have been assessed for accuracy, leading to 27,200 patients being removed for example if they no longer need their procedure;

- 3,507 patients have been reprioritised to date;

- 3,279 theatre actions have been created to manage patients through the 6-4-2 process, a model to improve operating theatre productivity, safety, and patient experience;

- 4,372 booking requests have been completed;

- waiting lists for 392 consultants have been managed through care coordination;

- there has been a 55% reduction of bookings cancelled on the day due to missing Pre-Operative Assessment from, 2.89% to 1.29%; and

- patients with suspected cancer had their first appointment on average two days sooner.

The Royal Free London, Barts Health and Milton Keynes University Hospital Trusts pilots have not yet gone live.
