The “Internal supply chain” of a Trust needs to be reviewed before improvements in the external supply chain can be made. Ingenica’s 360 healthcare solutionenables you to look at how materials are moved, managed, stored, purchased & replenished from either external suppliers or internal suppliers (e.g. pathology, pharmacy).
Once our healthcare solution is fully implemented it can provide information to enable work with other trusts. Standard data sets on consumption, well managed catalogues and known contract compliance are powerful tools when collaborating with others on procurement activities. Such information can be shared physically, electronically or via web enabled portals. This way the NHS can be sure that it is getting real value from their procurement.
