Integrated Patient Acuity Monitoring System
In today's tough financial environment, the NHS is under pressure to drive down cost and increase efficiency whilst improving patient care. The Francis report published in February 2013 has raised awareness of the effect that cost pressures can have on the delivery of a quality service. Therefore, it is more important than ever to ensure that frontline staff are provided with the right tools and processes to meet all targets, not just the financial ones.rightLearn More
