Sheffield Children’s NHS Foundation Trust has become the first children’s hospital to sign up to The Edge4Health, as the online catalogue and procure-to-pay solution continues to gain momentum across the NHS.
One of only four dedicated children’s hospital trusts in the UK, the hospital will be using The Edge4Health as its catalogue management solution.
The trust provides integrated healthcare for children and young people, including community and mental health care as well as acute and specialist services. It serves residents of Sheffield and South Yorkshire as well as providing specialised services for patients from across the United Kingdom.
The deal represents an extension of The Edge4Health’s successful existing relationship with Sheffield Teaching Hospitals (STH) and enables them to leverage the benefits of the platform across both organisations. Ultimately, the ability to save money, control spend, increase compliance and improve efficiency through a simple and intuitive user interface will mean more resources freed up to patient care.
James Thirkill, General Manager, Healthcare, said: “We’re delighted to have signed up our first children’s hospital and it’s particularly rewarding to have signed up another organisation due to them having seen The Edge4Health and the wide-ranging benefits it brings up close at first-hand.”
