IT Innovation in Healthcare was broadcast on Sky 189 recently. This will be uploaded onto our new website shortly.
This programme explores the changing role of IT within private and public healthcare. We look at the latest technological advances introduced like bar code technology, e-billing and e-referral systems. Leading IT professionals discuss the latest advances and opportunities within the NHS and private hospitals.
With the NHS facing an estimated shortfall of £30bn in the next 5 years, the need to make efficiencies through innovation is now urgent. The three IT providers featuring on the programme discuss real-world case studies where this has been achieved.
Healthlogistics– eProcurement service providers to NHS trusts, achieving procurement and stock level efficiencies using bar-code technology. They discuss their pioneering work with Derby Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the NHS’s E-Procurement strategy and the roll out of the GS1 initiative.
Healthcode– Provide electronic billing and IT solutions to private hospitals, consultants and insurers; and discuss what private healthcare can learn from NHS.
Cloud 2– Have designed and implemented Kinesis, a referral system enabling a dialogue between GP’s and specialists, reducing referrals. They discuss the wider impact this will have on the NHS and the results from their successful pilots.
