Taking the first steps
Engagement is key to the success of any implementation project. To implement the foundations for Scan4Safety, every journey should start with a robust organisational structure and approach.
Here are some guidance points on taking the first steps to help trusts, suppliers and solution providers get started.
Our commitment to patient safety
The NHSE Transformation Directorate is again putting central effort into supporting acute Trusts to scan at the point of care to improve patient safety. Scanning improves patient safety through embedding the 4 P’s, enabling health care organisations to generate early warning systems for expired medical devices, fast and efficient retrieval and recall and monitoring long-term outcomes of implanted devices on a patient’s EPR. Scanning is highly cost effective as it frees staff from manual data entry and improves data accuracy from day one.
“I’m delighted to present the support offer from the Scan4Safety team. Scanning is cost effective and improves patient safety through:
• Generating early warning systems for expired medical devices
• Fast and efficient retrieval and recall
• Monitors implanted devices on a patient’s Electronic Patient Record (EPR)
Also, it frees staff from manual data entry and improves accuracy. Scan4Safety helps trusts implement scanning solution by:
• Securing senior buy-in
• Making a business case
• Getting scanning up and running
• Benefits realisation”
