Point, scan and improve your inventory management. This easy-to-implement tool saves time, improves accuracy, increases efficiency and more. It’s ideal for managing low-cost items that require each-level tracking.

This is the key to our program. Part of our cloud-based software platform, Integrated Advanced Analytics uncovers trends, waste, standardization opportunities and other actionable insights. This tool saves time, supports informed decision-making, enables negotiations for greater savings, identifies utilization changes (by physicians, manufacturers, product types and more) and manages across your entire enterprise on a single platform.

The right supplies, the right amount, right where they’re needed. This lean management tool eliminates over- and under-stocking of bulk low-cost inventory, while also streamlining workflows and cutting unnecessary steps.

Capture data right away with our point-of-use stations. This tool makes it easy for clinicians to record critical usage information at the point of care, automatically adjusting inventory, capturing accurate charges for billing and clinical documentation systems and creating implant logs.

Our modules seamlessly integrate with your existing HIS/EMR systems, billing systems, clinical documentation systems and materials management systems, helping promote interoperability while reducing errors and eliminating data redundancy.
