Dynamic Storage and Retrieval Solutions Improve Hospital Supply Chain Logistics
Today’s hospitals are constantly being pressured to reduce operating costs while enhancing patient care. Because the supply chain is one of the most integral pieces of a hospital's success, improving the flow of materials throughout the hospital makes sense. One of the easiest and most efficient ways to improve your hospital’s supply chain logistics is to update antiquated processes and outdated storage and inventory management technology. Stationary shelving, racks, and manual inventory picking methods are inefficient and cost your hospital space and productivity. These outdated storage systems are being replaced with dynamic storage and retrieval solutions, like Horizontal Carousels. With Horizontal Carousels, your hospital can lean out wasted time and money and spend essential resources on improving patient care. (view images of Horizontal Carousels)
How Horizontal Carousels Work to Improve Hospital Supply Chain Logistics
Horizontal Carousels are designed to enhance the flow of materials throught your hospital. The automated storage systems bring stored medical supplies and products directly to the operator with just the simple push of a button, which eliminates walk and search time commonly associated with bin shelving. In addition, the carousels increase worker productivity and make efficient use of your facility’s floor space.
Horizontal Carousels are equipped with inventory management software to provide accurate real-time information for traceability and to reduce stock levels and stock-outs. The inventory management systems can be integrated with your software to generate all types of on demand reports and tracking history. Each transaction is documented and recorded to providing accurate, controlled and efficient distribution of medical and surgical supplies even at peak times. This way you know what you have and where it’s located without having to manually count items to keep track of them.
