Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
In-theatre stock usage and procedure level costing system
Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has developed an in-theatre stock usage and procedure level costing system that uses services from Healthlogistics, hTrak and Assistive Partner. Barcode technology captures the staff, consumables, and time used in an operation, leading to significant reductions in the volume of stock held and accurate cost data. The team now wants to introduce the system to wards.
