The HFMA, supported by Health Education England, is delivering a 12-month programme of work to increase awareness amongst NHS finance staff about digital healthcare technologies, and enable finance to take an active role in supporting the use of digital technology to transform services and drive value and efficiency.
As part of the programme, the HFMA is publishing a series of case studies. Working with organisations who have started on the digital transformation journey, we will identify examples of good practice and highlight the challenges that services face. This will include specific challenges relating to NHS finance.
This case study describes a radio-frequency identification (RFID) system tracks medical assets. The system reduces time spent looking for equipment, improving patient care and reducing write offs and replacement costs. The system also helps with updating maintenance records and provides useful data on how frequently specific assets are used to inform procurement plans.
