The Medical Physics and Clinical Engineering (MPCE) department at Galway University Hospital (GUH), Saolta Healthcare company leveraged no-code / low-code development to replace their inefficient purchasing management system with a flexible, user-friendly and modern purchasing system.
Prior to using Kianda, the MPCE department were facing difficulties with their equipment management system which couldn’t cope with purchasing facilities or ever-changing healthcare demands. In addition, to execute daily purchasing management activities, the team was juggling between Excel, Word and Outlook.
Lack of visibility into spending, forecasting and budgeting became a major issue for them. MCPE department decided to move beyond off the shelf applications due to their limitations and invest in an all-in-one low-code / no-code platform. One, that would allow them to build custom business applications to overcome these challenges by allowing them create the system that meets their unique requirements.
Using Kianda, the MPCE department easily built an end-to-end purchasing system fully integrated with other data systems, including 16 year old legacy equipment management system, in just under 1 month. Along with optimising procurement management, they have significantly improved tracking, reporting and monitoring expenditure and enhanced user experience.
“Using the Kianda platform, there is now a big opportunity to build more processes.
With challenges ahead, it is systems like Kianda that are going to help us get over those battles to improve our systems for patients”.
