Tracking Medical Products
Medical facilities often do not have enough space or resources to store large amounts of medical devices and other medically necessary products. These facilities may enlist the help of a 3PL provider. The 3PL provider stores the products for the facility, and then transports them as needed. Unfortunately, it can be challenging to figure out exactly when products are needed and where.
3PLs responsible for the care of medical products often struggle to ensure that products get where they need to go, when they’re needed. This can be especially true for temperature sensitive products such as tissues and embryos. These items must be protected against temperature changes, which can cause damage and potentially life threatening situations for patients.
Ensuring Patients Receive the Products They Need, When They Need Them
Medical facilities are often understaffed. It’s not uncommon for medical care providers to forget to order products. This can be dangerous for patients. Medical facilities need a way to communicate with 3PLs the moment products are required. This ensures products arrive on time.
Mint Controls’ solution uses RFID tags, GPS, and IoT technology to help medical facilities and 3PLs provide medical products to the people who need them. Our solution tracks inventory in both the medical facility and 3PL storage unit to determine which products are needed and when.
When hospital stocks are running low, or a certain product is required, our solution checks with local providers to locate the product. Our solution then monitors and tracks the product as it is transported to the facility, providing information on location and status to those who need it. Our solution ensures that medical products arrive within four hours of being requested.
Relevant information on location, inventory, and status can be viewed at any time, from any location in the world. All that is needed is a smart phone, tablet, or computer. Real-time alerts are sent the moment products are removed or replaced, inventory is running low, and products are about to expire. Our system even keeps track of which product goes to each patient. This enables accurate billing. No other system provides this level of service and visibility.
Cold Storage Monitoring Protects Embryos and Tissues
Tissue and embryos stored in cold storage are monitored to ensure temperature changes do not occur. Our solution monitors the health and status of refrigeration motors, compressors, and Freon levels. This prevents damage caused by faulty equipment and allows for predictive maintenance.
Alerts notify management of issues long before they are able to cause a problem. Our solution installs quickly and easily and integrates with existing systems. Our team provides 24/7 remote support as well as on-site support as needed.
