The partnership with Thula has seen our advanced electronic signature solution integrated into Thula’s ALFA controlled drug module to provide a closed-loop and fully paperless solution for the management of controlled drugs in the NHS, ensuring compliance with UK legislation and elevating governance when managing controlled drugs.
The Congress comes at an exciting time, as the solution for built in support for e-signatures and controlled drug management is currently being rolled out to the University Hospitals Birmingham.
Collectively, the solution will:
– Immediate and full UK regulatory compliance with electronic signing
– Effective discrepancy detection and resolution
– Complete elimination of paper-based registers
– Improved workflows support increased Care Hours per Patient Day (CHPPD)
– A control tower overview of all aspects of controlled drugs management
The user engagement testing program and pilot has now been completed with data collected. It has now entered the controlled first phase service roll out with further data to be collected.
