United Kingdom GS1 UK Europe/London public

Patient safety lies at the heart of any NHS trust’s day to day activities, however on occasions things go wrong and Never Events take place that cause harm to patients that could and should have been avoided.  

To improve patient safety, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust have developed CareScan+, a point of care scanning solution that tracks medical devices to patients and provides clinicians with instant decision support notifications. These safety notifications include details such as appropriate implant choice (e.g. wrong-sided implants for procedures) and alerts for expired and recalled medical devices.  

CareScan+ also provides an insight into location, staff and medical device utilisation, product wastage and total costs for every procedure, which helps to drive operational productivity improvements.

Webinar speakers will include:

  • Professor Graham Evans, chief information and technology officer/SIRO, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
  • Tony Naylor, associate director of ICT and CareScan+ project lead, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
  • Anthony Kennerley, CareScan+ project manager, North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust
  • Ben Clarke, training and education manager, GS1 UK
