After a very successful implementation at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital at Camperdown NSW by Time & People Pty Ltd Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) have added Concord Hospital to the centralised Visitor, Contractor and Induction management system. SLHD had an existing visitor contractor management software solution that was causing issues in a number of areas. Next hospital on the list is Sydney Dental.
SLHD needed a better way to centralise contractor information across multiple locations including inductions. SLHD also took advantage of the insurance module to list copies of suppliers insurance policies. With insurance policies in the software when a contractor signs in the dates of the insurance policies are instantly checked to confirm the insurance is valid.
Sydney Local Health District (SLHD) comprises 5 major hospitals in Sydney NSW.
- Royal Prince Alfred Hospital
- Concord Repatriation General Hospital
- Canterbury Hospital
- Sydney Dental Hospital
- Balmain Hospital
SLHD made contact earlier this year with a number of issues with an existing system that had been in place for almost 2 years. Time & People were called in to discuss the issues and provide a more robust centralised solution to the Engineering Departments at each hospital responsible for the management of all contractors on site.
The system had to drive contractor compliance.
The Engineering departments are managed centrally from RPA by Nik and his team with engineering teams at each hospital.
Initially implementing at Royal Prince Alfred Hospital SLHD were very quick to add Concord Repatriation General Hospital to centralise the management of both hospitals with the WhosOnLocation Visitor Contractor Management software. Many of the suppliers that provide services at RPA also provide services to the other hospitals in the network.
Having a centralised system of compliance means it does not matter which location the contractors sign into, the compliance of the Supplier including insurances plus the employees of the suppliers including inductions and qualifications are checked in a matter of seconds. Any supplier or contractor who is not compliant with expired insurances or out of date inductions will be denied access immediately.
When I asked Nik why he selected Time & People to provide a Visitor Contractor solution to replace an existing system he said easier to use more reliable software.
SLHD have taken advantage of many of the modules and features in WhosOnLocation to manage the compliance of contractors including
- Sign in and sign out every visit
- Notification alerts on arrival and departure
- Contractor online Inductions
- Contractor location specific kiosk induction
- Contractor insurances
- Contractor qualifications
- Denial of access for non compliance
- Asset module to manage the issuance of keys
Nik said the roll out was going excellent and Canterbury Hospital will be next.
