Formic helped us to provide a more streamlined process for our large scale ongoing audits. This is not limited to the traditional clinical audits, but also more focus on our quality audits that are often time consuming and data required to be analysed and reported in numerous forums. The biggest benefit is to have experts on hand to develop solutions to achieve our more complex auditing needs. The introduction of the new national cleanliness standards is a perfect example of this. The system is versatile and has been easily adapted to meet our needs, providing efficiency and improved engagement with colleagues across the Trust.
