ASSET AND INVENTORY MANAGEMENT’S CRITICAL ROLE IN HEALTHCARE
Heart monitors, beds, medications, face masks, respirators and wheelchairs are only some of the critical medical supplies and devices that healthcare providers need to stay safe while saving lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. With so much at stake, the last thing anyone should have to worry about is an inadequate inventory or asset management system.
However, one of the unfortunate consequences of the pandemic has been the exposure of severe flaws in how many organisations are inadequately equipped to manage critical medical inventory and assets.
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way. Wasp Barcode Technologies offers proven cloud-based or on premises solutions for healthcare providers which can manage these supplies effectively so you can stop worrying about manual processes and focus on patient care.
InventoryCloud can help you maintain accurate stock counts, reduce errors, and avoid manual entry of items, location bins, pick orders, and inventory receiving. Real-time inventory reports enable you to compile and analyse essential data, like transactions by department. Maintain oversight and visibility over your inventory levels thanks to InventoryCloud’s compatibility with iOS, Android, or Wasp mobile computer devices. InventoryCloud’s web-based solution enables you to manage inventory at multiple hospitals or clinics, without all the locations needing to be on the same network. When lives are on the line, every second counts. That’s why InventoryCloud allows you to receive instant notifications of events such as low stock levels, expiring items, late orders, checked-out items past due and more by setting custom triggers, so you don’t run out of items needed for critical care again.
AssetCloud can help you quickly find exactly what you need with smart views and a conditional search feature. Stay compliant with regulations by quickly generating reports on all your assets, such as where they are, when they were used last, which have been sterilized, what you’re running low on, and more. Mobile flexibility helps your team stay connected and up-to-date on asset activity wherever you and your assets go. Spend less time on manual processes and tracking and more time focusing on the best care for patients.
Asset and inventory management in healthcare is a complicated issue, but keeping those critical medical assets and supplies safe, accounted for, and properly stocked should never be an issue. The simple adoption of an inventory or asset management software like Wasp’s InventoryCloud or AssetCloud is the solution.
