Abloy scoops healthcare innovation prize

The Medilink West Midlands Medical & Healthcare Business Awards have recognised Abloy UK for innovation within the healthcare sector, thanks to its CLIQ® locking technology.

The annual awards bring together clinicians, researchers and academics to celebrate the impact organisations have made to the medical and healthcare sector in the West Midlands.

Abloy UK took the top prize in the Delivering Innovation into Health and Care category, sponsored by West Midlands Academic Health Science Network, which recognises innovations adopted by the NHS which demonstrate an impact on efficiency, patient outcomes and system costs.

The security experts have worked alongside a number of West Midlands hospitals to implement its CLIQ® locking technology, including Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham City Hospital and Sandwell General Hospital.

CLIQ® utilises mechanical, high security disc cylinders combined with highly encrypted electronic locking and identification. It provides a system of remote key management, providing access audit trails and the ability to remove lost or stolen keys.

Within healthcare, installing CLIQ® on drug cabinets has made medicines more secure. As the key provides power to the lock it also requires no batteries or wires, making it an ideal retrofit solution for the NHS.

The system gives every nurse their own key, programmed to provide entry to every cabinet they are authorised to have access to and validated for the duration of their shift.

Subsequently, this frees up nurses time looking for keys allowing more time to care and quickly administer medicines. In one instance, figures from an audit of patients who felt their pain killers were given promptly jumped from 79% to 92% following the installation of CLIQ®.

Aaron Yule, Managing Director at Abloy UK, said: “The healthcare sector is facing enormous strain, so we’re constantly striving to deliver value and innovations that will relieve some of that pressure. We’re incredibly proud of the CLIQ® system and the tangible efficiencies it brings to many NHS trusts across the country.

“That’s why we’re delighted to be recognised with this award. It firmly belongs to the outstanding and dedicated Abloy healthcare team who always go the extra mile with customer support and installation.”

Abloy UK will now advance with the rest of the winners to the national Medilink UK Awards, which will be held in April at the NEC Birmingham Metropole.
