Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust deploys innovative blood-tracking systems

MSoft ESolutions : 06 February, 2013  (Application Story)
Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust is enhancing patient safety by introducing innovative blood-tracking systems by installing MSoft eSolutions' Bloodhound solution.

Bloodhound controls access to and from all blood fridges, providing enhanced security and safety by ensuring that only approved staff are allowed to access blood. The firm's blood-tracking solution provides positive identification of users and patients and in depth auditing of all bloods across each and every stage of the transfusion process - to help get the right blood into the right patient.

The system will be introduced immediately across five of the Trust's network of nine hospitals which serve more than 500,000 patients. The hospitals MSoft will be working with are Wansbeck, North Tyneside, Hexham, Berwick and Alnwick.

The Bloodhound system will also be integrated into the £75million specialist emergency care hospital due to open in East Cramlington in 2014.

Matt McAlister, Managing Director of MSoft eSolutions, said: "We are delighted to have been selected by Northumbria to provide the Trust with our Bloodhound system which will significantly enhance patient safety".

"We won the contract as a result of having been chosen to be part of the NHS Supply Chain Purchasing Framework".

"This is a busy Trust with over 1200 beds which has rightly recognised the importance of harnessing the very best in technology as part of its overall patient care".

"Hospitals need to know that the technology they invest in will provide them with the sophisticated, efficient and, most importantly, secure and safe systems they require".

"Northumbria represents our latest contract win having previously won all eight of the tenders we bid for during the past financial year. This achievement vindicates all the hard work and innovation we bring to our product development and delivery."
