Healthcare providers can streamline materials-related activities, improve control over PAR locations, and gain visibility into every transaction via mobile receiving, counting, replenishment and more.

Facilities, such as hospitals and other healthcare providers, need to efficiently manage and replenish supplies. 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. By automating your PAR process, healthcare facilities reduce costs and enhance operational efficiency while maintaining patient care levels.

  • Do you struggle keeping PAR locations stocked?
  • Are your supply levels accurate?
  • Do you need more visibility into your hospital operations?
  • Would you like to automate data entry and minimize variability of items to buy/manage?

One way to do this is to improve visibility across PAR locations, stockrooms and warehouses. RF-SMART’s mobile functionality, combined with the Oracle Cloud, gives you a process that ensures your inventory levels are maintained at ideal quantities.

Tighter Control on PAR Activities

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

PAR Scheduling

Once you create a PAR Group, you can 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 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 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.

“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.”
