We would like to congratulate Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and East Kent Hospitals University Foundation Trust for being amongst the finalists of the prestigious first ‘Lord Carter Innovation Award’.
Shortlisted for the use of active and passive RFID systems and adopting GS1 standards for effective medical device management, Cambridge University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust have used RFiD Discovery and GS1 standards to ensure maximal asset utilisation, aiding productivity.
East Kent Hospitals are being considered for the award thanks to their use of RFiD Discovery for medical device tracking which has helped them to increase efficiency, reduce costs, save time and improve their CQC rating.
As honorary patron of the Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estate Management (IHEEM), Lord Carter will be presenting the award on 25th April 2017, during the first day of the Hospitals Innovations Exhibition and Conference at London Olympia. Judged by an independent panel of IHEEM past presidents, the award will be given to the NHS Trust or organisation which best represents the use of innovation to improve healthcare estates and infrastructure.
