Deal will lead to implementation of inventory management system
Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust, a GS1 demonstrator site, has awarded Ingenica Solutions a contract for the inventory management element of the Department of Health’s (DH) Scan4Safety project.
The trust will utilise the full range of available data capture solutions, including the Ingenica clinical mobility solution and RFID technology to increase the efficiency of existing materials management processes, saving clinical time and improving patient safety in line with the Scan4Safety objectives.
Nick Kyte at Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust said, “We are very excited to be working with Ingenica Solutions. With its proven track record in the NHS and forward-thinking approach, we have a partner that will work and grow with us as we expand and develop our inventory management programme.”
“The project is unique in its planned integration with RFID technology, and really aims to show how best-of-breed data capture and technology can work in healthcare to best advantage.
Nicola Hall, managing director at Ingenica Solutions, added: “Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust is one of the six demonstrator sites in the Scan4Safety programme, and our team is very excited to be working with the trust to deliver the inventory management section of the Scan4safety programme.
“We’re looking forward to enabling the trust to use inventory management as a key building block to the programme and to achieve operational efficiency, savings and improved patient safety.”
