Hospital 2-Bin Kanban and PAR-level systems
Healthcare consumable stock management is a never-ending task. Bulk supplies have a high usage rate, so hospitals and surgery centers need to be constantly monitoring storeroom supplies and ordering restocks in time to prevent stock-outs.
During these financially difficult times, there is pressure on hospital materials managers to reduce medical inventory wastage and costs.
Many healthcare providers are also running on reduced staff, so minimizing labor-intensive materials management activities is becoming ever-more crucial.
For these reasons, many healthcare organizations are looking for simple ways to add speed, accuracy and efficiency into their hospital two-bin Kan and PAR-level systems.
Two-Bin Kanban and PAR automation for healthcare
Hospital Kanban systems and PAR inventory bins are commonly used but are known to struggle as a medical inventory management system.
New technology is now becoming available that can automate existing medical supplies management systems in hospitals and ambulatory care centers.
Digital tags can now be added to regular Kanban bins, converting them into electronic bins.
Hospital PAR-bins go digital
We look at how existing medical supply PAR bins can be transformed into smart bins and check out the latest technical advances in hospital consumable supply management – the first ever wireless, weight-based PAR bin.
This new approach is unleashing weight-based PAR from big, cumbersome units, and enabling complete freedom of placement.
