The medical field is an industry of constant change. It never stays still for a moment, and so doctors and hospitals can’t afford to be patient when it comes to providing care for their patients. Procedures and prescriptions are continually advancing while medical equipment and internal regulations face close scrutiny. You can ensure your medical equipment and supplies are always up to date, monitored, and tracked in the most efficient manner possible by incorporating powerful inventory software into your daily operations.

Let’s consider some of the many ways that you can benefit from medical inventory software.


Expiration dates, whether they are attached to life-saving medicine or medical equipment, are critical to maintaining industry standards. They let practitioners and hospitals know what day they need to use those materials by and/or how long they can be used until they should be replaced. Out-of-date equipment and medicine can potentially present major health risks, so you always want to stay on top of their expiration dates. With inventory software, you can:

  • Cycle through items that are in stock according to their expiration dates, reducing potential waste
  • Keep real-time inventory numbers available for sales representatives to access at any time
  • Ensure any regulated materials reflect current standards or pedigree laws
  • Manage your inventory, equipment, and material in a single location or in multiple locations
  • Make quick transfers from one location to another when necessary to avoid shortages


Heart rate monitors. Fingertip Oximeter. Blood pressure readouts. Each of these serves to assess a patient’s health in real time, eliminating unnecessary guesswork. Your inventory deserves the same amount of attention, and with the right software you will be able to gain access to the following features to make that happen:

  • Work orders can reflect stages of completion (or production stages) across multiple locations
  • Kitting allows you to know your quantities per kit or by individual pieces and to quickly get orders ready
  • Automatic replenishment points allow for the instant creation of purchase orders and auto-purchasing of items that are getting low
  • Custom work orders can be created with specific instructions per user to make sure nothing is overlooked


Most medical processes require a variety of production stages, from pre-surgery preparations to recovery and preventative practices. The ability for your staff to track and record data of each step is essential to effective medical care. Using powerful inventory management software, you can perform the following tasks to track your item storage and use over time:

  • Lot number and serial number tracking provides exact figures on the volume and location of your inventory items
  • Keep tabs on consigned, leased, and sold inventory so you have a clear picture of your inventory situation
  • Receive updates on shipments and deliveries to prepare for incoming orders and respond appropriately when trouble arises
  • Access all customer and vendor histories to know how best to work with both of them
