PAR Location Management

RF-SMART’s easy-to-use mobile functionality, combined with the Oracle Inventory Management Cloud functionality, gives you a process that ensures your inventory levels are maintained at ideal (or PAR) quantities.

 

Facilities, such as hospitals and other healthcare providers, need to efficiently manage and replenish inventory. Nurses and other clinical staff grab and utilize supplies as necessary without scanning them in or out. You can have hundreds of items per location and hundreds of locations per facility.

RF-SMART PAR Management

Designed and developed in collaboration with Oracle Product Strategy, RF-SMART's pre-integrated solutions increase visibility into PAR operations and related employee activities. Our PAR Management allows you to define locations and groups of locations, what items are stored, the proper quantities, charge accounts, and replenishment methods that will be used. You are able to see who did what and when they did it, and your entire organization can perform real-time inquiries to see what’s on-hand.

We provide flexible, purpose-built functionality for healthcare providers including:

  • Template Creation
  • Location Definition & Management
  • Trigger Req’s in Oracle
  • Trigger IMTs in Oracle
  • Mass Item Updates
  • Error Notifications

In addition, RF-SMART provides better insight into PAR counts and making sure PAR locations are counted on the appropriate days and shifts. 

PAR Grouping

PAR Grouping provides the ability to join multiple PAR Locations into a larger group. By grouping PAR Locations for a specific Organization, you can ensure all locations are counted and increase overall count efficiency.   

PAR Scheduling

Once you create a PAR Group, you can then then assign a shift to count that group. Groups can be scheduled for multiple days or shifts. End users can see the Groups of PARs to be counted on their shift when they login to the mobile device. 

PAR Activity Dashboard

Managers can quickly and easily view real-time PAR activity on our PAR Activity Dashboard for better visibility and accountability. PAR locations must be grouped and scheduled for RF-SMART to populate the Dashboard.

Mobile PAR (Offline)

Once your PAR locations are defined in RF-SMART’s PAR Management, your are ready to send your workers out to count and observe your healthcare inventory.

Workers count locations on a periodic basis to make sure everything is at the optimum (PAR) level. Our offline mobile application has a user-friendly UI that is easy to use and learn, reducing training time. You also don’t have to worry about spotty wi-fi throughout your facility.

RF-SMART and Oracle work seamlessly to trigger replenishments and appropriately expense items. Purchase Orders for vendor supplied item & an IMT/Transfer Orders for storeroom replenished items are created automatically.

Mobile offline functions include:

  • Count
  • Request
  • Two-Bin
  • Item Look-up
“The offline PAR counting feature is very beneficial. I can rely on the fact the data downloads to the device and then uploads later to Oracle SCM Cloud if my employees go through a dead spot in the hospital’s WiFi.”
