The Problem: Hospitals are in over their head managing medication inventory
Clinicians are highly trained in patient care and yet they must act as de facto supply chain experts to keep their hospital stocked with the medications it needs. While recent decades have modernized many parts of the hospital pharmacy, bringing the industry Automated Dispensing Cabinets and the Electronic Medical Record, these technologies, along with many others, are disparate systems that have little or no interoperability.
Despite technology investment in the hospital pharmacy, there are still tedious, manual restocking practices, incomplete auditing of controlled substance dispensing, and an overall inability to have visibility into the movement of medications into and throughout the hospital. Providers are stretched thin and this leads to clinical practice where medication errors and drug diversion abound, not to mention fiscal costs.
This problem is compounded by the same lack of item-level visibility at the manufacturer and distributor level, leading to a supply chain without enough meaningful information for best possible efficiency.
It’s no wonder so many supply chain challenges rattle the healthcare industry and take time away from hospital clinical care.
