The importance - and vulnerability - of the supply chain in healthcare have never been more apparent than during this COVID-19 crisis. As healthcare organizations require greater preparedness and risk mitigation moving forward, we are pleased to offer VueCount™ for tracking and managing all supplies, including critical Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
VueCount™ is a plug-and-play mobile solution that allows users to manage, transact, and audit a variety of clinical inventories - from PPE and other low cost/high velocity med-surg items to high cost specialty procedure supplies and implants. It consists of a turnkey application that can be downloaded on a variety of Android and Windows-operated devices, and comes fully-loaded with a UDI-compliant master catalog of clinical items for immediate utilization in data capture and reporting. VueCount is easily customized to include facility or department-specific pricing, item numbers, and par level information for each SKU.
Why use VueCount?
VueCount is an easy-to-use tool that gives users complete control over all their clinical supplies, and provides key performance data such as on-hand availability, burn rate, days on hand, and demand forecast. Whether using a computer, tablet, or hand-held device, once it is connected to a standard barcode scanner, VueCount is ready to streamline your supply chain by managing supplies in a multitude of environments:
- In a warehouse, main supply room, or at the dock by recording the incoming POs, and where supplies are being sent and received throughout your organization;
- In any given department or storage location to document what is being decremented from the inventory to gain an understanding of the burn rate and velocity of each item;
- In any part of the hospital to conduct cycle counts and gain a full picture of inventory trends in terms of par levels, utilization rates, as well as reorder and/or replenishment needs;
- In any clinical department with high velocity/low cost items, managed via bin systems (e.g. Kanban) to capture and report replenishment needs for each location and SKU to the required par levels; and
- On a hospital-wide basis to perform periodic or annual audits and have a true picture of available inventory – by type, location, quantity, and value for the purposes of financial reporting.
