The technology provides supply chain with a real time accountability of supplies.
Oax Health, the provider of the Press™ Inventory Replenishment System, is delighted to announce the execution of an Anchor Agreement with Orlando Health Central.
Press™ provides a real time, dynamic replenishment solution, optimizing both supply availability and nursing productivity. As a result, better patient outcomes and ultimately reimbursement for the organization as a whole are delivered. Joint success is ensured through integrating cross functional teams (Supply Chain and Nursing), bridging the gap that exists today.
“The sharing of ideas and endless customization to build the right product for the right application has been priceless” Marc Lillis, Administrator-Support Services of Material Management at Health Central Hospital
Under the guidance of their innovative Supply Chain leader Marc Lillis (Administrator-Support Services), Health Central Hospital has transformed existing manual processes and storage solutions to real time data to the benefit of both Supply Chain and Nursing in tandem; “Working with Oax from the beginning has helped Orlando Health Central build a solid platform for Supply Chain. The sharing of ideas and endless customization to build the right product for the right application has been priceless. We were looking for a system that can help us control high moving, low cost items without spending a fortune, Press™ proved to be our answer. The technology provides supply chain with a real time accountability of supplies. The future goals of this relationship will help reallocate FTE’s, create a JIT LUM system with our distribution warehouse, and provide data that can help us better control supply costs per patient day”.
Julie Herrman, (Nursing Director at Orlando Health Central), stated “The technology pilot program on the unit was a very collaborative effort between the nursing staff and the Central Supply team. Once my team reached the point of comfort and making it a part of their daily routine, they also found themselves taking ownership of the process. They found that their supplies were being replenished before they had an empty bin. Our Central Supply team did an outstanding job working with my team and Oax Health. We made many adjustments to ensure ease of use and there was great communication throughout the process. The team is looking forward to continued use!”
The vision of Marc, Julie and their teams has been truly outstanding and we look forward to partnering with similar thought leaders in the future.
