Consignment Stock Management

Supply chain partnership optimization – use AI to gain joint vision for smoother consignment management

Shared data is the key to dispute-free consignment stock management

The consignment inventory management model is becoming more popular, but this “pay-per-use”, vendor-managed inventory (VMI) often causes delays and disagreements. 

The problem is the lack of clarity over inventory that’s owned by the vendor or distributor, but located at the healthcare facility. 

This disconnect causes uncertainty: What are the up to date stock levels? Which items were wasted? Which items were used?

Constant data discrepancies between supply chain partners trigger emails, faxes and calls, draining staff time and putting a strain on working relationships.

The image-to-data revolution

SNAP&GO gives perioperative teams superpowers! The innovative image-capture technology delivers full digital charting in OR and Procedure Rooms – using patent-protected image-capture technology.

Currently, all existing solutions on the market depend on scanning technology, (barcode/RFID/QR code), or necessitate manual data entry within EHR software. If an item is absent from the item master, nurses encounter difficulty completing reports as they receive error messages at the point of use.

Through a blend of image processing technology, which decodes images of items, it’s now possible to record items not listed in the Item Master.
