Leading UK Pharmacy Centralises & Automates Data Transfer Requirements

Leading UK Pharmacy Centralises & Automates Data Transfer Requirements


Well, the UK’s largest independent pharmacy with 800 stores, 7000 employees and 73 million prescriptions issued per year, faced a dilemma. They had just been acquired by Bestway Group from the Co-Operative Group and needed to continue to seamlessly exchange business critical data with customers and suppliers after their split.

With a considerable list of challenges that needed to be addressed, Well’s team approached the independent managed file transfer experts, Pro2col.

Well wanted to simplify and better manage their automated and manual data transfer, especially those through financial accounting systems.

Key requirements also included:

1. Data management efficiency through one secure, centralised platform for enhanced visibility and control
2. File transfer integration within their environment for business critical applications AND between third-party applications with partners, vendors, or suppliers exchanging data
3. Automation of financial accounting data to save time, improve security and increase accuracy
4. Full audit and reporting for improved diagnostics
5. Rapid deployment of new transfers on receipt of business requirements

Healthcare Industry Beware!

Healthcare Industry Beware!

Recent reports have highlighted that hospitals and physicians in the US have been given a deadline of 2015, to convert all health records into digital form and then, to deploy the accompanying technology to handle these digital assets.  Considering only about a quarter of the US population’s health records are digitally stored – this is a bit of a tall order!

healthcareMakes you wonder whether, no lets rephrase that, WHEN the UK will follow in their footsteps.  For those organisations operating in the health sector, it may be wise to start reviewing the security and efficiency of you’re file transfer systems now, especially when you take into account the increased ICO powers of enforcement due to come into effect on 6th April 2010.  If a similar mandate were to come into force in the UK, in order to avoid possible fines of up to £500,000 organisations would need ensure that sensitive client files were secured when being transported between locations.

If your a healthcare organisation and you want to review or evaluate your large file transfer processes, please get in touch with the team at Pro2col on 0333 123 1240.  We offer a comprehensive range of secure file transfer solutions and we’re always happy to help.
