Written by Caryn Cooper
ID Medical attended the glittering HSJ Efficiency Awards ceremony at Grosvenor House on Wednesday 25th September and sponsored the prestigious award for the ‘Workforce Efficiency’ category.
The HSJ Efficiency Awards, which bring together over 800 healthcare professionals, were created to identify and reward the organisations that have delivered tangible improvements in healthcare efficiency and cost savings, whilst maintaining the highest levels of patient care.
Nick Napier-Andrews (pictured - left), head of strategic accounts at ID Medical commented, “We were among some truly inspirational individuals and organisations at the event, it was so good to see them being recognised across many categories. It was a fabulous evening and I was delighted to present the Royal Air Force Medical Services, with the honourable ‘Workforce Efficiency’ award.
“ID Medical has a successful track record supporting the NHS in delivering extensive procurement efficiencies through its comprehensive and bespoke workforce solutions. Reducing staff numbers has proven to incur damaging circumstances and with dwindling health budgets, it is a crucial time for us to provide innovative, reliable and quality staffing solutions to both the NHS and private sectors.
“We fully understand the importance of such awards and the need to recognise key individuals and teams that make a real positive impact on our National Health Service. Everyone at ID Medical would like to congratulate this year’s winners and finalists.”

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."
