Inventory management solution and analytics platform enables NHS trusts to track spend on consumables and medical devices
Healthlogistics has announced that its eProcurement and hTrak procedure level costing services have been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Services’ G-Cloud 9 Framework, under Lot 2: Cloud software.
Developed specifically for NHS acute trusts; the hTrak Scan4Safety solution comprises GS1-certified inventory management linked to accurately-captured procedure level data, which together with an analytics platform enables trusts to track their spend on consumables and medical devices.
The solution is in full use and proving invaluable at Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and London North West Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust - and is in its early stages at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust.
As well as delivering vital patient safety improvements within acute trusts; the solution is helping them to achieve considerable cost reductions in levels of inventory; streamlining the time taken for ordering items; releasing time for greater patient care; and making clinical process improvements.
Gary Adams, commercial director of Healthlogistics, said: “Clinical directors, heads of procurement and firectors of finance in acute trusts can now simply, through the digital marketplace, use the framework call-off agreement for setting up their contracts with us, rather than undertaking an often-lengthy tender process.
“We believe that this additional route to market will enable us to accelerate the uptake of our Scan4Safety services in the next few years, enabling trusts to manage their non-pay spend and procedure costs more effectively.”
