The April Edition Of Healthcare Global Is Now Live
Procurement costs account for more than 30 percent of a hospital’s expenditure, in fact procurement is the largest outgoing second only to staffing expenses and yet for years it has been considered a back office process. Many hospitals don’t have a procurement representative in the c-suite and often, the topic is not even discussed. This month in Healthcare Global, we interviewed Richard Macintosh, Managing Director and Procurement Expert from consultancy firm, Inverto about ways hospital executives can improve and make lean their procurement process and consequently save considerable amounts of money.
In this issue we also take a look at the latest social media channel developed specifically for business executives, Businessfriend. The newly launched social network could help open up the lines of communication between hospital executives and facilitate information sharing more readily, allowing for cost saving and efficiencies down the line.
Finally we take a look at ERP solutions and financial planning software solutions.

Vuram launches automated app to track COVID-19 supplies
A new app that tracks COVID-19 supplies in real time time has launched.
Built by hyper-automation services company Vuram, Trackable can monitor the progress of vaccines, oxygen cylinders, PPE, and masks as they move through the supply chain.
The app's features include street view to facilitate coordination between drivers, and trained facial recognition software powered by Microsoft Azure to ensure goods are only handled by authorised personnel.
Other functions include:
* Demand management for inventories, to prioritise deliveries using automation
* Demand analysis to predict sales trends based on stock levels
* Offline multilingual feature for drivers
* A dashboard to see the status and location of drivers
* Insights on how products are performing in real-time
The team at Vuram built Trackable as part of the Appian World 2021 Online Hackathon, where participants can take their ideas for innovative software and create a custom app. The tracking app went on to win the contest.
“Custom component building is at the heart of this application, and we focussed on making them more creative to provide an improved user experience" said Santosh Kumar, co-developer of Trackable.
"We are happy that we have managed to make it to the top in just a month. On behalf of Vuram, I thank the Appian Hackathon team for their efforts in conducting the event, and my hearty congratulations to all the winners."
