Understanding the true value of e-commerce solutions for system working

16 Jun 2021
B - Breakout stage 4

As the NHS moves further towards implementing integrated care system (ICS) structures, finding ways to embed collaborative system-wide working is becoming increasingly important.

Recognising the opportunities this presented, Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust implemented a new materials management system across its non-acute settings, which centralised materials management and ordering via NHS Supply Chain’s e-commerce solution, EDC.

This session will explore how staff and patients have benefitted, as well as exploring the role of e-commerce from an ICS perspective. NHS Supply Chain will also share its plans to support and develop its service to meet the evolving needs of the NHS.

Delivered in partnership with NHS Supply Chain.
