HealthTrust Europe Nursing beta testing

Thursday Thursday, January 26, 2012 by Ian Pettman

We are currently involved in the pre-release testing of staffing reports for HealthTrust Europe Nursing. There is a large parallel between the bulk upload report for Agency Information Management System (AIMS) and the bulk upload report for HealthTrust Europe Nursing, however as we are involve in the Beta testing this time,  we hope we can guide the process to be a more stable and robust import one.  We look forward to updating you on progress over the next couple of weeks.

Reporting AWR for HealthTrust Europe

Monday Monday, January 16, 2012 by Ian Pettman


HealthTrust Europe: A very pleasant surprise.

For those familiar with AIMS (the NHS Agency Management Information System), the new management information report requested by HealthTrust Europe will come as no shock.  Our initial contact with this organisation has been both a pleasant and a welcome experience.  

Some of our customers had audits prior to the Agency Worker Regulations meaning that no workers had reached the parity requirements of the Act. Under these circumstances, simply seeing our in-line monitoring and reports was sufficient.

However, a standard management information report has now been specified. It was a few hours work to ensure our customers had a ready to run report to be provided to HealthTrust Europe. As with any initial definition for a new exchange of information: there are always going to be corners to map out. This report was no exception, what was exceptional was the pleasant, clear and open discussion to clarify the data this report needed.  

We very much look forward to working with HealthTrust Europe to provide the most efficient reporting and compliance to the end benefit of both our Agency and our NHS customers.

Health Trust Europe Nursing Framework Audit

Wednesday Wednesday, January 11, 2012 by Ian Pettman

After the traditional Christmas and end of year seasonal  lull, interest in our product range has been greater than ever.

There appear to be two main factors driving this upsurge.

  • The HealthTrust Europe Nursing Framework Audit requiring agencies to properly monitor and report AWR figures. Our first Agencies are flying through their audits.
  • Also major employers such as Asda requiring similar diligence from their suppliers. Clearly the larger the organisation, the more proactive they are. They are taking active measures with their suppliers to ensure that they do not fall foul of potentially expensive worker parity claims.
