This provides instant visibility if any of the required checks have been missed, and has also created a more systematic approach to ensure staff follow correct procedures. Health and Safety Audits through the hospital have all been automated and the ability to add photos has ensured management is able to more quickly understand and assess issues, and then create relevant actions.
The 1Place system has created traceability of issues so if there is a problem or complaint arising, then the system clearly displays the date of the last check, and the staff member involved. The management now have the ability to observe and report on any trends relating to compliance areas, and use the data provided to continue to improve their internal performance.
For Anglesea, the implementation of the 1Place system has highlighted the future potential of the product to target other areas in the hospital and help achieve even higher results in providing excellent service to their clients.
Areas that will be built into 1Place in the future may include sterilising equipment checklists, infection control audits and other theatre procedures.
“We take our compliance and performance standards very seriously.
1Place is making it quicker and easier to collate the key information straight into the system and provides us with instant reporting and transparency on key actions needed.”
Nicky Van Praagh, Chief Executive Officer, Anglesea Hospital
