The pandemic revealed our strengths and weaknesses when it comes to the systems and processes we use, particularly in the healthcare field.
Using outdated or manual inventory models led to ineffective supply chains. Now that the dust has mostly settled, healthcare executives should search for innovative and long-term solutions to managing supply chains.
Inventory Management Software and Platforms
Increased visibility is crucial to improving inventory management. It’s important to not only reduce stock-outs but also to reduce stockpiling to achieve optimal inventory levels.
SpectraPath provides an efficient web-based tool to effectively maintain pre-analytic supply and specimen management processes for customers. Offering the latest technology, SpectraPath’s RFID solution integrates intelligence asset tracking and temperature monitoring.
Getting accurate product usage and data is a challenge. SpectraPath makes the ordering and delivery process easier by using client-specific and patient-specific ordering processes with detailed order histories. You can also set order limits and require order approvals as needed. Our advanced order management module will help:
- Automate manual tasks.
- Leverage workflows and business insights to lower costs.
- Improve delivery of care.
A Texas-based study found approximately 12 million Americans are misdiagnosed every year. Some of this occurs from labeling errors during the collection process, lack of transparent tracking processes, or inefficient communication systems between the lab and health professionals.
SpectraPath provides detailed specimen tracking for your peace of mind. This system creates visibility to:
- Manage all specimens received for accurate inventory and receipt logs and scan specimen receipts.
- Capture the time, date, tracking number, and kit and supply detail, and view specimens in transit—all in real-time.
- Reconcile shipments delivered versus specimens received with detailed information on tracking statuses.
- Receive exception alerts for lost or delayed shipments.
Intelligent Asset Tracking
