West Kent hospitals enhance patient safety with innovative blood-tracking systems

MSoft ESolutions : 22 May, 2013  (Application Story)
Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust selects leading healthcare technology company MSoft eSolutions' Bloodhound solution following a rigorous tender process.

Bloodhound controls access to and from all blood fridges, while a bedside management system allows each bar-coded blood unit to be matched with the patient's bar-coded wristband in a matter of seconds.

The systems provide further 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.

Bloodhound will be implemented at Maidstone Hospital and Tunbridge Wells Hospital.

Matt McAlister, Managing Director of Merseyside-based MSoft eSolutions, said: "We are delighted to have been selected by Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells NHS Trust to provide its hospitals with a comprehensive range of systems which will significantly enhance patient safety".

"This is a busy Trust and it 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."

McAlister added: "Winning the tender with Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells further strengthens MSoft's footprint in South East England following other successes with Brighton and Sussex University NHS Hospitals and East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust."
