  • Ideal for specialty areas such as cardiac cath, angiography, radiology and GI labs, the Specialty Lab application helps staff manage high-cost supplies, track cases and access information within critical, procedure-based areas as well as just-in-time delivery tracking of high-cost consignment items by both the facility and its vendors.
  • The Medical Surgical application simplifies caregiver access to supplies. Users can easily transfer supplies between locations, find items stocked in other locations, and discover which items need to be replenished.
Our Customers Speak:

"We really know what is on our shelves, and we only have our re-orders set based in minimum and maximum numbers of what is on hand. We can now see what we are actually using and what it really costs to do a right cath compared to a peripheral cath."

—Marcia Deeb
CVIS Coordinator, The Washington Hospital


"At our year-end physical counts, we found that our actual inventory variance was less than 1% for most units, and less than 2% overall. It's unbelievable. We're very proud-it's a tribute to everyone who works with the system."

—Beverly Sanborn
Assistant Vice-President, Materials Management, Holy Name Medical Center
