Tecsys Inc. a supply chain management software company, has announced the launch of Elite Healthcare Receiving, a hospital receiving application that seamlessly integrates receiving and delivery processes into a health system’s supply chain operations. This addition to the company’s supply chain execution platform “means that there is no process gap from dock to doc, connecting historically disconnected operational silos,” the company said Oct. 4.
The platform-integrated product eliminates the use of multiple tools, systems and processes and provides users with complete chain of custody tracking.
“By integrating the hospital receiving function as part of the holistic supply chain execution process, we are eliminating the typically accepted gap between warehouse and distribution management and in-hospital inventory management,” said Cory Turner CMRP, senior director of Healthcare Strategy at Tecsys.
Healthcare supply chains are typically bifurcated between the activities within a distribution or consolidated service center and those at point of use. The receiving function then depends on ERP integration or a standalone bolt-on application. In order to maintain data integrity and end-to-end visibility of items moving through the hospital, supply chain staff are therefore required to either duplicate entries or flip-flop between two systems, slowing down the receiving process.
Tecsys says its Elite Healthcare software platform has stitched together a truly unified data and process flow, without the need for bolt-ons or auxiliary solutions.
