TraQa Intelligence in Healthcare

TraQa Intelligence* is used extensively in a range of healthcare settings to manage medical and healthcare consumables. TraQa Intelligence provides powerful analysis of distribution, allocation and consumption across multiple sites for thousands of stock lines to dramatically improve day-to-day operating efficiency and for strategic objectives such as budgeting and performance benchmarking.

More than 500 TraQa Intelligence installations are used across multiple NHS and independent healthcare locations in the UK with this number increasing at almost 20% per year. TraQa Intelligence offers benefits across many different departments and areas.
