Delivering tech transformation to the NHS

Idox Health is a leader in the development of a GS1-certified healthcare solution, providing a logistics platform specifically for NHS Trusts and health organisations.

Using barcode and Radio Frequency ID (RFID) technology, our iFIT platform tracks health records and medical devices in hospitals across the UK, with Trusts benefitting from tangible results in terms of patient safety, clinical efficiencies and cost savings. Delivered with a Scan4Safety feature, it also enables clinicians to confirm whether a device is safe to use within its planned preventative maintenance and sterilisation cycle – functionality aligning with the Health Secretary’s intent to make care better for patients and life easier for staff.

There are many benefits supporting the use of an RFID sensory infrastructure, including automated tracking in real time without user intervention, the ability to track direction of travel and programme alerts, and the removal of human error.
