Leveraging already proven software with modular and configurable tools, ASAP Systems released a packaged solution for inventory and equipment management for end users in the healthcare industry. Medical offices, hospitals, and clinics require material, consumable, specimens, and asset tracking systems that can handle ever-changing business environments and specific stock inventory needs. With Passport, ASAP Systems’ locally installed system, and BarCloud, its cloud-based system, healthcare companies now have the tools that give them the highest probability of matching their business processes and requirements. They also have the flexibility to start with base functions and add advanced modules as they go.
Passport and BarCloud continue to redefine how medical supplies and equipment are tracked and managed. For example, the systems allow users to automatically track all types of medical supplies by expiration dates as well as serial, batch, or lot numbers. Another built-in feature allows medical offices to automate supply chain functions by using the location min/max inventory features. Healthcare administrators and staff can manage medications or devices throughout the entire inventory lifecycle, in real-time, so that valuable supplies do not expire, get misused, or go missing. In addition, the inventory systems’ configurable reporting and analytics functionalities provide users added insight into the use of their medical inventory in order to develop best practices moving forward.
“When it comes to inventory and asset tracking, we understand our customers’ needs and situations are constantly changing. That is why we designed our systems to be configurable and flexible; so they may accommodate evolving operations,” says Elie Touma, CEO of ASAP Systems.
Belmont University’s School of Nursing uses Passport (and its mobile application) to track specimen and consumables with limited shelf life at their six simulation labs. “We spoke with several companies offering inventory management software. What separated ASAP Systems was their overall customer service and the system’s ease-of-use,” says Kathy Pope, registered nurse at Belmont University. Pope and her colleagues also track all required maintenance, like cleaning, upgrades, and calibrations needed for medical and simulation equipment. Monitoring these activities through calendar events with automated alerts ensures timely maintenance and increases the life of the assets.
Additionally, the system allows medical staffs to indicate replenishment settings and automate stock supply by generating a stock inventory transfer or placing a purchase order. It sends a configurable alert to notify designated personnel. This functionality gives medical offices or healthcare practitioners complete control over their stock inventory levels throughout their locations.
