Lean, efficient inventory management system for medical supplies
The LogiTag StockBox provides materials managers with a simple, highly efficient method to automate inventory management and reordering of medical supplies in any healthcare setting.
The StockBox combines a two-bin lean Kanban configuration with advanced RFID technology and proprietary cloud-based software to collect reordering information from RFID-enabled stock cards, to run regular restocking reports, or to send automated restocking requests as they occur to hospital ERP systems.
Restocking with StockBox
- Items are used as needed. When the quantity in the primary bin are used, the item has reached its restocking point. The RFID-enabled StockCard card is pulled from the cardholder on the front of the bin and dropped in StockBox. A Restocking in Process card remains on the front of the bin.
- Dropping the StockCard in StockBox triggers and sends an electronic notification – including the item quantity and location – to the materials manager or team.
- When restocking is in process, there is enough stock in secondary bin for routine use. (Items in the secondary bin are moved to primary bin.) Items are picked in central supply, distributed, and restocked as required. New stock is placed in the secondary bin.
- The materials management team opens StockBox to retrieve the StockCards, presses the Restock button, and passes the StockCards over the control panel to update the database. When replenishment is completed, the StockCards are returned to their respective cardholders.
