Wireless Weight Based PAR blasts Supply Management to the Next Level

Imagine a future where managing your medical supplies no longer involves constant stock checks and scrambling to prevent stockouts. Wireless Weight-Based PAR makes this a reality.

Let’s start by reminding ourselves of the regular challenges healthcare providers face when managing their bulk medical supplies, with many being high-usage items that fly off the shelves.

Common medical supply management challenges include:

  • Stock outs, shortages and surpluses – lack of accurate data results in the unreliable supply of products.
  • Wastage – inflated procurement costs due to unclear demand wastes significant annual funds.
  • Labor – labor intensive process to count stock, monitor usage and procure restocks drains already-busy materials management and nursing staff.

 

With patient care depending upon the constant availability of the exact supplies required, this is a vital and fundamental function that healthcare facilities need to get right. That’s why automation is such an attractive option, and in recent years weight-based PAR has gained popularity.

Advantages of Weight-Based PAR

Weight-Based PAR is an automated supply management system based on weighing scales monitoring stock levels and triggering automated demand signals.

The system perpetually monitors the content of each bin and provides an automated demand trigger in the system when a restock is required.

But traditional weight-based PAR has been confined to bulky units and big bars, limiting the flexibility offered to healthcare providers.

The introduction of the first-of-its-kind wireless, weight-based bin in therefore changing the game, providing an individual smart bin with the same capabilities as bulky bars.!

The Benefit of Portable Weight-Based PAR

FAQ: Wireless Weight Based PAR Installation Video

Weight-based PAR offers real-time stock level visibility and automatic procurement. This means you’ll always know exactly how much of each supply you have on hand, and the system will automatically trigger reorders when stock levels dip low. This eliminates the need for manual checks and ensures you never run out of critical supplies.

Wireless weight-based PAR is already adding automation to hospital supply management but the existing technology is part of a wired unit or bar. These cumbersome units restrict the placement options in supply rooms and can mean that smaller supplies spaces are unable to accomodate them.

These groundbreaking individual smart bins are fully portable and wireless. They can be placed anywhere and seamlessly integrate into your current storeroom layout and hardware, rather than requiring restructuring the space to house a weight-based unit. Wireless weight-based PAR is the future of PAR-level management.

Traditional inventory management involves a lot of manual work, including regular stock checks, order placement, and data entry – for materials management and nursing staff.

Wireless Weight-Based PAR automates these tasks, freeing up valuable staff time. Your team can focus on more critical tasks like patient care instead of managing inventory.

Yes, Wireless Weight-Based PAR can lead to significant cost savings in several ways.

First, it helps prevent stockouts, which can be expensive due to emergency purchases or expedited shipping fees.

Second, it reduces waste from expired or overstocked items as prevents stock surpluses.

Finally, by providing accurate data on inventory usage, it can help you optimize purchasing decisions and potentially negotiate better deals with suppliers.
