h-trak solution is renewed on the G-Cloud 10 Framework

Aylesbury, 2nd July 2018:  Prospitalia h-trak is delighted that its h-trak patient centric point of use data capture solution has been awarded on the Crown Commercial Services’ G-Cloud 10 Framework, under Lot 2: Cloud software.

Developed for use primarily by NHS acute trusts, the h-trak solution captures and decodes GS1 barcodes to accurately identify products used in surgical and interventional procedures. When combined with other data captured in the system such as timing points, staff attendance and procedure types, h-trak provides a rich source of procedure information, including procedure costs – and can integrate with local procurement and PLICs systems. Finance, Clinical and Procurement managers use the data to review performance and make informed decisions.

h-trak is proving invaluable at leading Scan4Safety demonstrator site, Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and at London North West University Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust, South West London Elective Orthopaedic Centre (SWLEOC), Chelsea and Westminster Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, and in its early stages, at Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.  As well as delivering vital patient safety improvements within acute Trusts, the solution is helping them to achieve considerable cost reductions in levels of inventory; streamlining the time taken for ordering items; releasing time for greater patient care and making clinical process improvements.

Asked about the benefit of the framework for its NHS customers, Kirk Kikirekov, Managing Director, Prospitalia h-trak states ‘Clinical Directors, Heads of Procurement and Directors of Finance in acute trusts can now simply, through the Digital Marketplace, use the framework call-off agreement for setting up their contracts with us, rather than undertaking an often lengthy and costly tender process. We believe that this additional route to market will enable trusts to expedite more efficiently their Scan4Safety aspirations, manage non-pay spend and procedure costs. ’
