Asset Management customers have access to our Online App which enables equipment orders ‘by the bedside’ of the patient.
Analysis on our equipment orders displayed a large proportion of requests being sent in the afternoon, primarily due to clinicians completing patient assessments in the morning and passing their equipment needs to an administrator upon returning to their central organisation in the early afternoon.
This meant equipment orders were being placed in bulk, which could create a bottle neck in the service and meant a patient were being assessed early in the morning but had to wait to receive their equipment late afternoon; this is especially problematic for patients at risk of developing a pressure sore considering they can start to develop within 2 hours.
The ability to order by the bedside of patients will effectively distribute the volume of orders throughout the day, reducing the strain on the service, and condense the time for the patient to receive the equipment, as our 4 hour response time will start from this point.
This unique offering delivers significant benefits to our customers through:
Maximising Clinician to Patient Time – The APEX App reduces the need for clinicians to return back to their organisation to place requests for equipment, allowing them to focus on delivering optimal patient care.
Reduced Administration – Administration in any organisation can often prove costly and inefficient, the APEX App helps to reduce this by taking a layer of the ordering process away and empowering clinicians to place their requests directly.
Retain Budgetary Controls – Defined authorisation levels can place a safeguard against over spending by passing equipment requests to a centralised location for approval, before being passed over to APEX.
