They provide high quality acute hospital services for the population of Leeds and the surrounding area and act as a regional centre for a number of specialist services such as cancer and cardiac surgery. At the end of 2000 LTH incorporated bar code scanning in their catheter labs which allows clinical staff to get a ‘real-time’ picture of stock levels. Graham will explain how the system allows information to be scanned not only into a stock inventory system but into the EPR and the finance database. This ensures that every piece of equipment can be traced to every patient and an accurate costing of all procedures can be established.
