Supply ordering can be made more efficient through using technology, according to Inventory Optimization Solutions.
Inventory Optimization Solutions shared the following tip on how to improve materials management processes on their blog:
"Staff members in centers wear a lot of hats, moving from patient care to management tasks to supply ordering. We often hear they don’t have enough time for ordering supplies with all of the other urgent matters they face, so technology and processes must enable the most automated, efficient ordering. By building an enterprise formulary, and directing clinicians to standardize, procurement processes are streamlined. Use tools like barcode scanners to instantly create orders for replenishment."
