Ingenica Mobility, a real-time barcode scanning app for use by clinicians, has been launched by Ingenica Solutions.
It is designed on an Android platform for the Zebra MC18 mobility device and enables the track and trace of inventory to the patient level in hospitals.
The application enables clinicians to remove and return items and record wastage. It also has the added functionality of being able to track items to a patient, case, surgical team, perioperative team, or even procedure.
Ingenica Mobility meets government requirements including the eProcurement Strategy and GS1 standards.
Nicola Hall, managing director said: “Ingenica Mobility is the first app of its kind in the healthcare market, and its development was the next logical step for us.
“As a practical tool for clinicians at the point of care, it helps trusts transform existing inventory management procedures, and meet government requirements; it will make a significant difference to the operational and financial efficiency of hospitals across the UK.”
Ingenica Mobility is designed to work with Atticus, the GS1 certified solution developed specifically for the healthcare sector; a fully cloud enabled end-to-end inventory management solution that helps hospitals transform existing supply chain practices and procedures, according to Ingenica Solutions.
