Healthcare supply chain automation and process consolidation represents a significant opportunity, as it releases resources, reduces inventory costs and improves the complete hospital distribution process.
The solution consolidates and enhances inventory management capabilities by introducing best practices from complex distribution systems adapted to this environment in support of the front line of service. The proposed automated replenishment system provides an integrated structure for a supply chain management solution that effectively and efficiently manages supplies at various point-of-use locations while tracking utilization across the health system.
useIT is the only point-of-use solution suite on the market that reconciles all types of material and all supply environments in a hospital. useIT was designed to accommodate different material flows adapted to the various service areas in a hospital setting, based on item value, traceability needs and status in a case-managed environment. This differentiated approach facilitates customization of the supply chain while significantly improving productivity and lowering process costs per item number, without appropriating clinical time better spent on patient care.
We have the capabilities to manage and track all types of supplies from their receipt to their utilization, while limiting clinical staff involvement. This complete chain of custody is particularly important when unitary traceability is a must or for clinical or financial reasons, such as implants, bone and tissue and high-value and consignment items in specialty areas.
The application provides real-time information about the inventory, replenishment and consumption levels by product. The system also facilitates the reconciliation of invoices or inventory with suppliers.
