Kinsetsu are pleased to announce that the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust, which provides acute hospital services and community health and social services for a population of 345,000, has selected its ktrack platform to enable locating of 30,000 medical assets throughout the Trust’s multi-hospital estate.

The Trust will use ktrack to locate its medical assets such as beds, medical devices and clinical equipment as well as other capital assets across four of their main hospital sites.  This is equipment that constantly traverses between patient rooms, departments, wards, wings, private homes and even Trust regions.

The new system will help the Trust to locate medical assets quickly whether that be for use, repair or maintenance. This solution will bring unprecedented insight to the clinical staff, empowering them with data, time and cost efficiencies, and audit assurance. Ktrack will provide  vital location information which will significantly reduce clinical staff time spent searching for medical assets, giving back time for higher value tasks. In addition, ktrack will speed up and simplify the process of auditing capital assets for the Trust’s finance team.

Ken Moran – Chief Growth Officer  – Kinsetsu, commented:

“We are delighted that the South Eastern HSC Trust has joined the growing number of healthcare organisations opting to use ktrack to streamline their asset management process. With demands on healthcare professionals increasing all the time, we look forward to working with the Trust to help them reduce the unnecessary burden associated with locating and tracking medical equipment. When equipment is quickly identified and located it reduces the need for over stocking,  informs optimal placement and ensures availability for frontline staff, ultimately improving the patient experience.”

Andrew Lyness – Head of Medical Technical Services, said:

“The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust are thrilled to be collaborating with Kinsetsu.  Their asset tracking solutions will be vital in managing medical assets within the Trust.”
