The challenge

Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital in Atlanta, GA needed to reduce costs by improving inventory management in the medical-surgical supply chain. Their goal was to effectively monitor over 2,000 SKUs and over $2.5 million in inventory across 7 Cardiac Cath labs and 3 Electrophysiology labs.

The solution

Cardinal Health™ Inventory Management Solutions (CIMS) enabled Emory St. Joseph’s Hospital to monitor high-value consumable products through RFID and barcode tracking technology, mobile apps and cloud-based analytics software. This combination helped the hospital optimize inventory levels, lower costs, support patient safety, improve workflows, and gain new insights into improving performance.
