Macquarie University Hospital has teamed up with Prospitalia h-trak, a provider of mobile point of care systems and software solutions for the healthcare industry, to provide the hospital’s supply chain management solution.
The h-trak system will be implemented within all interventional departments of the hospital, including the Operating Theatres, Angio Suite, Endoscopy and the trans-oesophageal echocardiogram (TOE) departments.
Once implemented, the Prospitalia h-trak said its system will provide MUH with efficient and effective processes for inventory management, purchasing & replenishment of supplies, and prostheses billing.
“We are grateful for the decision by Macquarie University to select us as their system for Hospital Supply Chain Management,” said Kirk Kikirekov, Managing Director at Prospitalia h-trak.
“We are looking forward to working collaboratively with Macquarie on this project, to ensure that we produce a successful outcome, and we look forward to a long and mutually rewarding working relationship,” Kikirekov said.
Another core component of the system will include Prospitalia h-trak’s Preference Card Management System, which will address the end-to-end processes from patient booking and setup of procedures, through to the supply chain management and replenishment of critical supplies used in these high-cost procedure settings.
The SCM solution will also provide very granular, procedure-level data to allow MUH to analyse spend, with the aim of reducing wastage and costs.
“This new state-of-the-art digital supply chain solution will ensure that Macquarie University Hospital can continue to provide the highest quality patient care and manage hospital resources more effectively,” said Walter Kmet, CEO of MUH.
The project commenced in August 2022 and will start to deliver results as the rollout begins in each department in the coming few months.
