Hospital Inventory Software Products: Clients and COVID-19 Response
Delivered April 10, 2020. Contributor: Agnidip M.
To provide examples of clients of the hospital inventory and/or supply chain management software products like Evalus and SpendVu. To also identify additional actions that these companies are taking to respond to COVID-19.
Research indicates that Evalus does not make its client list public. However, it is evident that professionals working in equipment-intensive healthcare organizations use the software to evaluate medtech products, equipment, and interventions.
As far as Sutter Health’s collaboration with SpendVu is concerned, it uses the value management system (VMS) functionality of SpendVu’s software to bring transparency to all management levels of the Shutter Health system.
BonSecours is a US$3.2 billion not-for-profit health system that owns and manages 18 acute care, 5 long term care, 4 assisted living, 6 retirement communities/senior housing, 14 home care and hospice services, and other facilities, primarily on the East Coast.
Like Evalus, BonSecours has also not made any public announcement regarding the actions it is planning to take to respond to COVID-19.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak, as healthcare providers are increasingly seeking ways to better manage their inventories, companies like Jump Technologies is offering software solutions, such as JumpStock, to track how quickly providers use supplies, providing the end users with the data to back up the supply chain staff's stocking decisions.
