Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (OUH) is adopting a new inventory management solution, 360 IM, from Ingenica Solutions. By tracking and tracing supplies, the solution will help the Trust gain greater efficiencies in the areas of procurement, supply chain, inventory management, patient costing and the back-office; bringing significant benefits.
Ingenica Solutions is providing a partnered approach to the project initially to help alleviate resource pressure for the Trust. Following this initial phase and after training, the joint aim is for trust personnel to confidently continue the ‘out of the box’ process for deployment in order to ensure a cost-effective implementation.
Supplied in line with the Scan4Safety program, the Zebra MC18 mobility device will also be utilised for barcoding efficiencies as part of the implementation. This enables clinicians at the Trust to scan barcodes and inventory consumption to the patient level, in real-time. A light, simple-to-use, handheld device, the MC18 scans multiple barcode formats and adjusts product levels in the inventory management solution by automatically recording transactional activity.
The implementation of Ingenica Solutions’ 360 IM is planned as a phased approach:
Nicola Hall, managing director at Ingenica Solutions said, “Oxford University Hospitals Foundation Trust is one of a growing number of trusts to select Ingenica Solutions as its inventory management solution provider, which is absolutely fantastic. Our team provides OUH with a highly flexible, cost-effective solution, and importantly, one that promises to deliver reliable and sustainable change. We are looking forward to replicating the success we’ve achieved with other trusts for OUH.”
