PODFather’s healthcare asset tracking features include:

GP Portal

PODFather includes a portal which allows the collection sites – often GP clinics or sample laboratories – to book items in for collection by your porter and logistics teams. Unique barcode labels are generated to be attached to items ready for collection.

Track asset progress

Patient records, mail bags, samples, equipment, and other asset types can be tracked using PODFather with barcode scanning of assets labels possible using the PODFather Driver App.

Logistics planning, track & trace

The PODFather route management systems can be used to plan and optimise both recurring and ad-hoc collections across your logistics teams. All assets are tracked with live updates available to stakeholders as they are collected to the point of delivery.

Performance reporting

PODFather’s standard suite of job performance and end of day reporting gives you an accurate picture of planned vs actual performance. Make informed business decisions with ease and share data with others within your organisation.

Case Study: Simply Serve (Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust)

Simply Serve, the wholly owned subsidiary of Yeovil District Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, relies on PODFather’s healthcare asset tracking solution to monitor the movement of items across its growing delivery and collection network.  With an in-house logistics team moving patient notes, post, medical samples, surgical equipment and medication between more than 70 sites consisting of:  hospitals, doctor surgeries, pharmacies and laboratories, Simply Serve needed a solution it could rely on to help track and monitor asset movements.  Since the introduction of PODFather, Simply Serve has been able to move away from the manually planned process of old and eradicate paper from its operation for good.

With PODFather we are confident that all our healthcare assets are carefully monitored and tracked.
