Initially tracking 11,500 items of medical equipment, the Trust plans to scale the solution beyond medical equipment to include all hospital items that move around the Trust estate, including beds, laptops, pumps and much more.
Andrew Raynes, CIO at Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, comments: “Freeing up time for our staff to spend with patients rather than searching for equipment is a critical benefit to deploying Idox’s iAssets solution. With greater levels of traceability, staff can also maximise the impact of available resources and better control budgets through reduced asset loss, saving the Trust – and taxpayers – significant costs.”
Steve Bruce, Divisional Director of Assets at Idox, comments: “Working with Royal Papworth Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has been an exciting journey of innovation through which our collective ambition has been to ensure that the right equipment is in the right place, for the right patient, at the right time. We are looking forward to continuing our collaborative partnership and scaling the solution further to, in time, capture the total patient encounter while enhancing digital sustainability through accurate equipment tracking.”
