We have over 20 years’ experience in the community equipment market place, working with over 60 healthcare organisations and understanding the importance of providing a service that will help with the ever increasing constraints on the NHS, including decreased budgets and limited practitioner time.
TCES Connections is the leading community equipment ordering platform in the market place. It is simple to use and can be accessed from anywhere, meaning practitioners can place orders and collections all in real time within one single interface.
TCES Connections is the leading community equipment ordering platform throughout the UK. It is a software platform that continually empowers and assists practitioners in their everyday working lives. From start to finish community equipment can be ordered, collected or repaired with ease, with minimal navigation for an order to be placed. TCES Connections can be integrated with any aspect of community equipment, prescription models, complex loan equipment, self-funding and direct supply.
Get maximum control over individual and team spend by setting equipment authorisation levels throughout your service. TCES Connections enables you to set financial and clinical levels within moments, making sure spend is always monitored and the correct equipment is issued. This ensures local authority budgets are continually controlled and service users are always receiving the correct equipment.
With the increasing demands on prescribing staff mobile working is essential. TCES Connections is fully responsive and can be used on any mobile device, so equipment orders, collections and repairs can be placed anytime, anywhere.
Clinical Assessment Toolkit
It’s no secret that local authorities across the country are exceeding their budgets year on year, with over prescription of particular community equipment products contributing to this. The Clinical Assessment Toolkit aims to reduce this overspend for council’s nationwide.
The toolkit developed through clinical groups brings support to requisitioners, and has been developed for pressure care, cushions, seating, beds and key safes, aiming to aid clinical judgement in the holistic assessment of service user needs. After a service user assessment takes place, product downgrading can occur for service users whom no longer need high level products, aiming to dramatically reduce current expenditure in that area of the service.
Cost Efficiency Module
Improve productivity across your workforce
The Cost Efficiency Module has been designed to provide individual contracts with the most economically advantageous approach to the ordering of both non-contract equipment (specials) and minor adaptations.
Practitioners are able to provide multiple manufacturers with requests for quotations by simply uploading one completed specification document and allowing TCES Connections to complete the rest. Using this module through TCES ordering aims to assist practitioners and realise cost efficiencies by obtaining a range of quotations from approved equipment sub-contractors.
The practitioners will be able to choose the best quote for their service user, considering value for money and specification to meet assessed need.
Peripheral Stores Management App
Eliminate the loss of equipment across your peripheral stores and reduce costs by decreasing stock replenishment rates.
Through the use of a dedicated P-Store app issuing stock has never been so easy! The app enables speedy ordering and improved management of stock levels, reducing the amount of stock that is issued without it being tracked.
App activity automatically syncs back to TCES, ensuring management teams always know exactly what equipment is in stock, when stock levels are running low and when stores need to be replenished.
TCES Connections comes with timely and accurate reporting as standard, with an in-built library of reports that can be used anytime or if required something more customised can be created. Reporting capabilities enables you to drill down and analyse any part of your community equipment service. All reports are cloud hosted and in real time, delivered through powerful Microsoft Business Intelligence.
