Hospital Portering Task Management Solution - Myporter
Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust Hospital's existing task tracking system for its Portering Department had begun to experience failures, and as an older system it no longer received full technical support. Jobs were mostly created by wards and departments and sent to porter pagers. There was no real time visibility on the location of porters, or activity and could start impacting on patient experience. Many wards were finding it impossible to use the system; reverting to manual management which resulted in delays to patient and item movements and its reporting system was difficult to use.
Vanguard Medical Device Remanufacturing
Healthcare is a major contributor to the global climate crisis and waste production. There is significant recognition of this across all avenues of healthcare from commissioners to providers and including suppliers. The good news is that there is appetite to change this negative scenario with many people within the sector actively looking to change for the better.
Immersive Rehab - Digital Therapeutics for Neurorehabilitation
Immersive Rehab provides a personalised, engaging and clinically validated digital therapeutics solution in virtual reality to tackle the current limitations of neurorehabilitation, in particular for people with significant upper limb mobility limitations as a result of stroke, multiple sclerosis, ALS and spinal injury. Research has shown that retraining the brain can lead to important gains in mobility. By combining physical rehab with cognitive challenges, itis possible to obtain important gains in mobility and function. We propose that Immersive Rehab's digital therapeutics neurorehabilitation solution can impact this significantly.
Adjutant Platform for EPRR
We work in the field of EPRR – emergency preparedness, planning, risk and resilience. Adjutant are different due to our experience and deep knowledge comes from decades of front line service responding to critical situations and incidents in the military and blue light services. Unfortunately we have witnessed personally critical deficiencies in the implementation and execution of EPRR plans and experienced how poor communication provision can cost lives. So we decided to do something about it.
Intelligent workforce solution and indoor location technology
Many have tried to change the way clinical teams work to be more efficient; but few have focused on optimising the supporting teams that provide the logistics which underpin the flow of patients throughout the hospital. Navenio has done just that. By looking at the teams working within a hospital, they have proven that knowing where people are, indoors in real-time, unlocks significant improvements in their workflow and efficiency. This improves patient flow and patient care.
MediShout: A Logistical Brain For Healthcare
MediShout uses digital and AI technology to provide a “logistical brain” to health and social care organisations. Currently, logistical issues (e.g. faulty equipment, no PPE, broken IT, estates and facilities issues) delay staff and prevent best care. MediShout solves this problem by integrating all logistical departments onto one App, where a single-interface lets staff instantly report any non-clinical issue. Staff can track the progress of their report whilst organisations get operational oversight of all issues. AI-algorithms allows organisations to predict future problems, like broken equipment.
Healthcare Communications is a Macclesfieldbased SME that has a range of software solutions for the management of outpatient appointments, including digital outpatient letters, a patient portal and a health messaging service.
