Churchill’s Mo:dus ‘Make Ready’ shortlisted for Best Public Sector Project at National Technology Awards

We are delighted to announce that our Mo:dus ‘Make Ready’ system has been shortlisted for ‘Best Public Sector Project’ at the National Technology Awards 2020. The winners will be announced on 30th November 2020.

Make Ready is a system which sees ambulances prepared by a dedicated team of specialists who clean, restock and check the equipment on ambulances ahead of each shift. Currently Make Ready methods vary across the ambulance Trusts and are often performed by paramedics. This is a laborious process that can use up as much as two hours in a 12-hour shift, taking them away from their core job function.

The Mo:dus Make Ready app enables consistent high quality clinical care, reduces the risk to patients through increased vehicle safety, ensures all equipment and medicines are asset managed, and is fully auditable for total accountability. The data gleaned via the app can drive optimisation as it offers a unified view of assets, fleet, medicine, people and demand. It was first adopted by Trusts in July 2018, and since then others have used the app to great success.

James Bradley, director at the Churchill Group, commented: “For far too long, reduced visibility through lack of quality technology has meant Trust’s miss out on meaningful optimisations across logistical and operational functions. The Mo:dus Make Ready app dramatically reduces lost hours, assists with compliance, simplifies job management and prioritisation, and provides Trusts with cost savings. Most importantly, it improves patient safety through higher operational productivity and performance of the Trusts. We’re delighted that this important system has been recognised by the National Technology Awards.”

The National Technology Awards are organised by National Technology News. Now in their fourth year, the awards celebrate the pioneers of technology and encourage excellence.
