South Tees Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has appointed Ingenica Solutions to automate its inventory management processes.

It plans to implement the company’s 360 IM system at the James Cook University Hospital in Middlesbrough and the Friarage Hospital in Northallerton to replace the largely manual approach to supply chain and inventory management currently in place. 

The system will give the trust the capacity to track and trace medical supplies, people and equipment in real time with barcode technology, and to obtain a 360-degree view of costs. 

The solution will initially be implemented across theatres and interventional departments in both hospital sites including cath labs, cardiology, radiology and neuroradiology. 

Marc Saaiman, deputy head of procurement and Scan4Safety lead at the South Tees Hospitals, said: “Ingenica Solutions 360 IM was chosen not least because of the flexibility of the solution to grow and expand with the needs of our trust over time, but also because of its well recognised ability to maximise frontline and back office savings and efficiencies now and in the future.”
