Great Western Hospital NHS Foundation Trust has turned to Ingenica Solutions for the critical stock management and reordering of personal protective equipment (PPE). Ingenica Solutions 360 IM is already implemented in the Trust to track and trace inventory in the theatres department and will be rolled out across the Trust, securing efficiencies and improving patient safety.
In response to the Covid-19 emergency, Ingenica Solutions 360 IM was rapidly implemented in the Trust’s emergency pop-up stores in under two weeks; enabling GWH to track and manage PPE usage, auditing movement of PPE to point of use. Access to instant data allowed the accurate replenishment of supplies needed during the peak of the outbreak, which otherwise would be incredibly difficult to calculate the forecast demand.
Giles De Burgh, head of resilience at GWH said, “Trusts across the country were experiencing phenomenal issues with PPE during the outbreak of coronavirus, and it was imperative we had a solution to support the movement of PPE in and out of the hospital. We already had an established relationship with Ingenica Solutions for the track and trace of inventory in theatres, and we were confident the team would help us with our management of PPE during the crisis; they responded very quickly.”
