Q1. What kind of a system is it?
Apart from the wide variety of sophisticated medical care offered at hospitals, distributionof medical products, inventory management and consumption management need to be monitored centrally to improve patient safety.This system helps increase efficiency in the above mentioned aspects of managing a hospital.

Q2. What kind of features are there in this system?
It will prevent claims from patients:
By using the picking system and applying labels of medical products used, on patient records they can clearly understand the records. It will lead to reliable billing information for the patient.
By centralizing the goods of the hospital in a dedicated system, and preventing the excess inventory, we will work to reduce the amount of unnecessary stock in the entire hospital. In addition to that, it will also help in preventing use of expired products by managing the expiration date on various materials. The foundation of managing medical materials starts from the medical clinic. It is important to have a central stock room that is designed in a way that the materials can be organized so they are easily accessible and visually comprehensible. This leads to better efficiency of goods.
Implementation of the traceability feature enhances patient safety:
With the mechanism for BSE, for instance management of products with high risk of infection – biological products – can be done by providing the lot number on the product. Availability, use, and queries by doctors and manufacturers regarding these products can be instantly tracked.
To reduce burden and pressure on the hospitals staff responsible for inventory management
Japan boasts of its Kanban system used in hospitals. Medical staff have been granted action cards that are specific to medical goods. These cards are required to be placed in a predetermined card-holder (box). The logistics staff are responsible for picking up the cards and replenishing the specific goods with the required order quantity. This way, medical staff can be released from the time-consuming job of manually managing material goods and can focus more on patient care.
Maintenance of the delivery master is automated
(Mr. Amano, Logidyne and Mr. Yamauchi, who have been directly involved in the conceptualization and creation of the system for use in India, believe that it is completely in line with the current situation in hospitals.)
Q3. How can I use the system?
Introducing the in-hospitals logistics system is quite simple. Essentially you only need to prepare a terminal with an internet connection at the location of the system, such as a central warehouse. However, issues and suggestions about the medical goods management in the hospital will vary depending on the hospital, it is also different for system deployment. Please feel free to contact us on our contact details. During the introduction, as well as in the early stages after implementation, we will extend as much support as possible from our side the help the system reach its maximum potential.
