Technology provides a great opportunity for improving how the NHS delivers its services. And this has been recognized in the NHS Long Term Plan, published on 7 January 2019, with a whole chapter of the plan dedicated to digitally-enabled care.
Technology can provide a new and modern way for providing faster, safer and more convenient care. Digitally-enabled care can empower healthcare staff to act and communicate better. By providing greater connectivity, providing staff with greater confidence in test results, history and the evidence they need to make the best decisions for patients.
The digital transformation of the NHS is being driven by NHSX, and is set to be the largest digital health and social care transformation programme in the world. The NHSX have five missions, which are focused on how to make things better for patients and staff.
Here at Tutela Monitoring Systems, we are proud that our temperature monitoring can support the fundamental goals set by the NHSX. Below we have detailed how our technology aligns to the NHSX five missions, demonstrating how our automated alarm monitoring can support staff in providing quality assured care for patients:
Our automated temperature monitoring replaces paper and manual processes with quick, secure, connected systems. Freeing up time to spend on patient critical tasks. Through automated monitoring and 24/7/365 alarming, health care staff can be assured of maintaining compliance for the safe storage of medicines, bloods and patient samples.
Data gathered by Tutela Monitoring Systems can be accessed securely via any device that has internet connectivity. The Tutela customer interface utilises ‘https’ electronic banking standard data encryption protocols. This provides the highest level of security to our customers. The user interface is also easy to configure and easy to use. Multiple sites in acute and also primary and community can be monitored via Tutela Monitoring Systems. Presenting data for all, allowing for improved efficiency and transference of best practice.
Building public trust and confidence in how health and care services look after confidential information and use it to benefit health and care is of paramount importance, Tutela is ISO27001 data security compliant. Data on the correct condition and storage of medicines is essential to support people in making the correct health and care choices. Not only does the Tutela tracking data platform give advanced warning of any potential threats to the compliance of the inventory, it provides unparalleled insight into the whole monitored environment.
Providing patient lead care is paramount and when it comes to the safe storage of medicines, bloods and samples an automated monitoring system can provide real value. With manual systems it’s not possible to determine how long the stock was exposed to the out of spec temperature. So, the only safe option is to bin the stock. Yet with our automated monitoring, supported by 24/7/365 alarmed notification, valuable stock is protected. Making sure patients and the NHS get the best value from investment in medicines and pharmacy, whilst making prescribing and dispensing safer.

Tutela complies with and is approved for the NHS network protocol for security N3 / HSCN. With Tutela as a preferred NHS Supply Chain partner we offer value in terms of protecting stock and value in terms of admin time saved, so contributing to greater productivity.
