Theatre products tracked digitally4th August 2008
A new patient-level resource system to help keep track of product expenditure and stock levels in its operating theatres is being deployed by the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust.
The system from COA Solutions uses barcode scanning technology and will replace previous paper-based stock management processes which had been considered costly and inefficient. The Patient Resource Management (PRM) system will provide the trust with instant costing and usage information on up to 4000 product lines used daily in their busy operating theatres.

Interesting story - no doubt will help towards patient level costing and ultimately Service Line Management.
