Today’s fast-paced business requires up-to-the-minute tracking for receiving and delivery, increased security, and speed; the manual tracking systems of the past are quickly going the way of the horse-and-buggy. Many healthcare facilities are ditching their manual logs and outdated computer databases (that require manual entry) in favor of advanced receiving and tracking solutions; Vuetura can provide you with the most up-to-date solutions that will help you stay ahead of the game.
But what can you expect from Vuetura? What are the benefits of your hospital or healthcare facility updating your receiving department with an automated receiving and delivery system? Why is this the best option?
We’ve created a helpful list that will lay out some of the benefits of updating to an advanced receiving and tracking solution for your healthcare facility.
1. Eliminate Supply Chain Issues
Imagine how useful it would be if you could stop any potential supply chain issues before they became a big headache. As your healthcare facility grows, your parcel volume will increase as well, so the ability to stop problems before they disrupt your process is invaluable.
2. Easy Troubleshooting
Naturally, troubles will pop up from time to time, but how fast can you shoot them back down again? The many useful features of an advanced tracking system include the ability to create internal delivery logs, package alerts, and to reroute packages. This not only increases your accountability, it also provides higher customer satisfaction.
3. Avoid Missing Packages
Simply because you’ve marked a package as “received”, it doesn’t mean that the package has arrived at its intended destination, nor does it mean that the package arrived in the condition in which it was sent or that it arrived on time. That’s the bad news; the good news is that many of these troubles can be eliminated with an advanced receiving tracking solution.
4. Process Automation
Are you hoping to streamline processes in your healthcare facility? Automating your warehouse logistics will help you accomplish that, creating more efficient processes that will help you move faster and more accurately than ever. For further efficiency, you can couple your logistics tools with additional business systems.
5. Increased Accuracy and Efficiency
Manual tracking systems are notoriously inaccurate; multiple steps as well as human interpretation create a perfect environment for increased errors. However, an automated receiving and delivery system will scan all the information you require from the package label, eliminating the human factor and drastically decreasing the errors.
6. System Integration
For your receiving and delivery department to operate at peak efficiency, your receiving staff needs a system that makes it easy to exchange information with the big ERP/MMIS systems often found in a healthcare facility. A system like VueturaTrac™ integrates with all mainstream ERP/MMIS systems.
7. Tissue and Medical Device Tracking
Vuetura’s tracking system is specially built to manage the chain of custody for live tissue and any medical device that is placed in or on a patient. We understand that these items require extra special handling, and it’s our goal to satisfy our customers.
8. The Healthcare Industry is On Board
“What’s truly needed in health care are integrated, supply-chain-technology solutions that look to better manage every work stream,” says Susan DeVore. As more and more healthcare facilities move to advanced tracking solutions, it’s in your best interest to join them.
