Our experienced experts help Trusts find clinical efficiencies in operating theatres and beyond.
Through effective planning, streamlining of processes and better data insight, we help management and clinical teams achieve operational productivity and increased theatre utilisation.
With small, cost effective and agile projects, we have helped Trusts such as Harrogate and District NHS Foundation Trust and Ashford and St Peters Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, transform their theatre processes.
Unlike many consultancy firms that make recommendations for a Trust to deliver on independently, we work with you through the whole process to ensure delivery and benefit realisation. We help you justify the entire project with cost savings, improvements to patient care and efficiencies that directly link to your STPs and Cost Improvement Plans.
- We work with staff to understand current working processes
- We help analyse areas where efficiency can be improved
- We establish a plan to put those recommendations in place, and help you ensure it is delivered
- We roll out our theatre system, if required, in just 12 weeks
The flexibility and configurability of Bluespier has meant we have easily been able to adapt the system to fit into working practices of all our theatre suites. Clinicians and theatre staff like the system and find it easy to use and as a result there is a high level of buy in. We are now able to capture data that was previously unavailable or prohibitively time consuming to capture. This data is now assisting us in improving theatre management and utilisation.
Debbie Upson, Theatre Manager, Royal Berkshire Hospital
Bluespier has an excellent reporting facility and audit trail. It has helped to monitor and reduce late starts and early admissions. You can quickly see where a cancellation has happened and access spaces where patients can be fitted in. We can look at what is needed in theatres, and if for example, lamina flow is required we can move lists around. It is an excellent system.
Alison Bent, Elective Access Coordinator, Harrogate NHS Trust
Our Bluespier software is the envy of other directorates. Keeping tabs on our emergency patients used to be nightmarish. We had confusing and competing paper-based lists all of which were perpetually out of sync and out of date with different lists being used for our patients all over the Trust. This is a thing of the past. From admission through x-rays, Trauma meetings and ward rounds, to theatre and beyond, all patient information is available in real time in a central location, easily accessible remotely by approved clinicians from any computer in the network.
Danny Redfern, Trauma and Orthopaedic Surgeon, Royal Preston Major Trauma Centre
Bluespier helps us each day to ensure that our theatres are utilised to maximum capacity, our elective patients do not breach the 18 week rule and theatre staff are fully occupied. This means that we give the best value for money possible as our resources are used efficiently. Patients and their families can be kept easily informed and quality is continuously improving. For example, in anaesthetics, where we use the system to monitor patient outcomes. We don’t know how we would manage without it.
Julie Fairweather, Theatre Information Manager, Harrogate NHS Trust
The Trust has seen a reduction in the number of cancellations on the day of surgery due to implants missing (only 6 in the last year). As far as patient care is concerned the system gives confidence and reduces the likelihood of procedures being cancelled due to stock issues. The access to data for usage figures, costing and inventory access is superior in all aspects to the previous system.
Louise Barry, Utilisation and Resource Manager, Surgical Services Division, RJAH
The team at Bluespier was absolutely fantastic in terms of helping meet the very challenging deadline. It was very much all hands on deck to help reach the deployment project’s ambitious goal.
