Why the Healthcare Organization Needed Medical Supply Inventory Management Software
Previously, the hospital was leasing a medical supply cabinet solution that cost $175,000 a year to maintain. While the cabinets kept medical supplies secure, the cabinets were a hassle for nurses to use. In order to access a low value item, the nurses would have to first enter a keypad code and then scan the item to try to maintain a count. This process slowed the staff down and due to the extra steps; the count was rarely kept up to date. Because of the wasted time and money trying to keep track of low value medical supplies, the hospital made the decision to remove the supplies from the cabinets. This meant the healthcare organization had to find an alternative method of managing medical supplies.
