Each quarter, IOS asks their 4,500 plus healthcare facilities to share best practice supply chain experiences so that we, as a community, can improve and learn from each other.
For 2nd quarter, 2017 we’d like to congratulate Healthcare Express as they successfully automated true inventory management at 14 Urgent Care facilities spanning four states! Congratulations to Ashlee and the team at Healthcare Express!
Centralized Inventory Management Covering Four States and 14 Urgent Care Facilities
Recipe for Success
Clear communication from the top of the benefits to the company, and each site, for implementing an inventory system
Identifying the right people at each site to use and manage the system
Clearly defining a process flow that all sites were to follow
- We trained and retrained key people at each site
To maintain accountability, we informed each site that management was using the reports from the system with visibility into how each site was managing the use of system
Continued communication from the top on the value of the system and process
