The South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT) now live on ELMS2

Ethitec are pleased to announce that another service in Northern Ireland has chosen to implement their ELMS2 system. The rollout of ELMS2 to the community equipment and continence services managed by the South Eastern Health and Social Care Trust (SEHSCT) was completed in November 2023.

SEHSCT is an integrated organisation incorporating acute hospital services, community health & social services that serves a population of approximately 350.000 people. The Trust covers the local government districts of Ards, North Down, Down and Lisburn. The Community Nursing Equipment and Loans Service (CELS) provides equipment and products for patients in the community, whether it be in a nursing home, residential home or in the patient’s own home. The provision of suitable equipment can assist with hospital discharge and can also help patients to remain independent in their own homes for longer.

The ELMS2 system commissioned by the Trust provides a comprehensive set of easy to use software functions specifically designed to manage their ordering, stores, servicing, and distribution activities. Ethitec also delivered a set of technical, training, and consultancy services to help ensure a successful transition to the new system.

SEHSCT is now the 5th organisation to use ELMS2 in Northern Ireland, following the successful implementation of the system at three other Community Equipment Services which are hosted by the Northern, Southern and Western Health and Social Care Trusts respectively, and also at the Northern Ireland Regional Wheelchair Service.
