DATA GROUP INVENTORY MANAGEMENT (DGIM)
In the UK, as the NHS treats a million patients every 36 hours (2018) and the private sector involvement encompasses an increasingly complex range of activities, the healthcare industry faces unique challenges prioritising financial sustainability, care delivery, patient centricity, digital transformation and regulatory compliance.
Healthcare locations across the UK have an overwhelming amount of equipment and medical inventory needing to be tracked and managed and for every healthcare worker, there are extensive numbers of tools and devices to help them deliver the best in patient care. Once seen as a finance function, Inventory Management has evolved to become a critical part of how companies operate. The common challenge for today’s companies is how to accurately keep track of its inventory accumulated across the organisation.
Basic static list inventory information in the form of receipts and serial numbers are now insufficient when a company needs to produce reliable up to date inventory information, including its location, its purchase history and written down value. In addition, various departments within the company will interact with the same inventory but for different reasons – Finance, Procurement, Operations, Health and Safety and IT. Without reliable records, companies also risk being held to task about their duty of care, proof of ownership and of course, unforeseen events such as a workplace incident risks satisfying insurance company requirements in the event of a claim.
Companies have limited resources – financial, labour and time. The DATA GROUP INVENTORY MANAGEMENT (DGIM) system recognises these constraints and achieves ROI in all these areas, optimising your company’s operations, avoiding the duplication of processes and preventing any hidden inventory the company has paid for being misplaced or underutilised.
In the heavily regulated and compliance focused environment companies currently operate in, any improvement in processes which support regulatory compliance standards within the industry is an integral part of a company’s ability to operate and achieve growth.
The DGIM system has been developed as an innovative system for inventory tracking and management utilising a simple and effective web platform that can be integrated with your existing systems. The centralised inventory database is hosted in the Cloud and comes with digital scanning technology so you can use the smartphones and tablets you already own to upload and access inventory data whenever and wherever you need it. Implementing the DGIM system saves time and money as it allows you to quickly locate inventory by location and transfer inventory between ownership or locations all within one software solution. Extensive configuration options allow any amount of inventory and any number of users to work the system through an easy to understand framework and dashboard. In conjunction with the Data Group Asset Management (DGAM) system, you will have instant access to the total value of your company’s equipment and consumables.
