Hospital Materials Management

In an effort to control non-labor expenses, Hospital Materials Management is now more than just procurement. You need visibility into how many products are being used and where they are located.

Can You Relate to These Industry Needs?

  • Do you struggle with having the right supplies in the right place at the right time across your facility?
  • Do you need real-time visibility into your hospital operations?
  • Do you know what your staff is doing?

Benefits of Moving Materials Management to the Cloud

Healthcare providers have unique material management requirements because of the high volume of materials they consume and track across their campuses or facilities. Having the right amount of the right supplies, at the right time and place, and at the lowest possible cost isn't as easy as it might seem, and it is essential to increasing the quality of patient care. When most of that data exists on paper or in silos, it can be very difficult to gather all of the pieces.  That's where a mobile solution for Oracle Healthcare comes in.

Hospital Materials Management for Oracle Cloud SCM

Using a materials management solution like RF-SMART with Oracle Cloud SCM increases your visibility into product location, movement and related employee activities throughout the hospital. By tracking supplies from purchase to expiration, you are able to eliminate wasteful spending. 

With your data accurate in Oracle, you can quickly identify if there are any discrepancies with your patient satisfaction.

Real-time Data in Oracle

Our reliable and scalable Cloud application updates Oracle in real-time. Handhelds used across the facility connect to RF-SMART in the Cloud over Wi-Fi or Cellular. RF-SMART then connects to your Oracle instance and requests data from Oracle Cloud and Oracle responds with the data using Oracle Web Services. All of your data is encrypted and follows globally recognized Cloud security best practices.

Simplify the Ordering Process with RF-SMART’s Mobile Requisitioning

High-dollar inventory locations like the OR/Cath Labs/IR, are not managed like PAR locations or Storeroom inventory. Oftentimes the process of reordering items falls to a high-value resource, like a clinician or clinical supply chain professional manually capturing what supplies need to be reordered and then manually entering that data into Oracle Self Service Procurement Cloud.

RF-SMART’s Mobile Requisitioning automates this process with a web-enabled mobile device, eliminating the risk of errors from data entry and drastically improving efficiency.

Automate the ordering process using mobile:

  • Designed to not disrupt clinical workflow​, supplies are ordered from mobile device based on walkthrough
  • Streamlined process of Scan the Item, Enter the Quantity and Verify the UOM
  • Review, edit and delete lines on the device prior to finishing requisition
  • Requisition is submitted and built to Oracle Cloud
Clinicians can now spend less time managing inventory and more time focusing on patient care.



Everyone wins with a Healthcare Supply Chain that performs

Materials Management affects several departments in your organization. When you make improvements to the performance of your supply chain, it can be appreciated throughout the entire facility:
