Hospitals have a lot of supplies to keep track of, and that means a lot of manpower and resources are needed to help manage them. Incorporating a vending-based inventory control system can help hospitals distribute medicines, scrubs and other supplies securely without the need for additional staff or reams and reams of paperwork.
IDS offers vending machines designed specifically for hospitals and healthcare facilities looking for innovative, cost-effective medical inventory management solutions.
Each machine uses unique personal identification numbers (PINs) or encrypted ID cards to keep track of who’s using supplies so you can avoid the shrinkage problems that plague many hospitals today. Using specific ID data also helps you control the way items are dispensed by allowing you to restrict access based on the ID provided.
For hospital personnel, there’s no need to wait for supply room staff to get the supplies they need. Supplies can be dispensed at any time of the day or night, 365 days a year.
Our ScrubTrak vending machine doesn’t just dispense scrubs securely – it also provides a convenient drop-off feature so used scrubs are safely corralled until it’s time to clean them.
Inventory solutions don’t have to be complicated. Today’s vending systems can help hospitals gain efficiency while cutting costs so they can focus more of their resources on caring for the patients they serve.
