Comarch Improves Hospital Inventory Management by Cloud-based Field Service Management Software for MedicAir in ItalyPosted Nov 14, 2019
14 November 2019, Krakow – MedicAir, an Italian provider of home health medical services and a distributor of medical supplies, has chosen Comarch to enhance delivery of medical gas cylinders, and to upgrade both installations and service maintenance planning to all the medical devices provided to healthcare institutions.
Cloud-based Comarch Field Service Management will enable hospital inventory management in warehouses where all medical gases are stored. Hospital staff will be able to order equipment, which will be delivered from the warehouse to the specific unit. Additionally, staff will be able to monitor the cylinder’s location, gas level and use, and the expiry date for gas and cylinder.
MedicAir also aims to use the software to plan service maintenance for all devices – up to 5 000 of which may be installed at a single hospital. They also plan to send alerts directly to specialized technicians if any piece of equipment is not working correctly.
To manage all these requirements, Comarch’s implementation includes:
Cloud-based Comarch Field Service Software – a platform enabling the storage of information about a hospital’s units and employees (along with their roles, skills and authorizations), providing a view of workload distribution among technicians, and facilitating monitoring of all required details.
Comarch FSM Mobile app – a mobile application for technicians, where all work orders, including requests to deliver medical gases, service maintenance plans, and ad hoc tasks based on alerts, will be visible in real time and updated by users as work order status changes.
“As our business grows dynamically, and simultaneously we strive to deliver high quality of products and services, we believe that the innovative functionalities of Comarch FSM will let us stick to procedures and build more trust among our clients, so we can ensure even better quality of healthcare in hospitals” – said Piero Coccoli, Clinical Product Specialist & FSM Project Manager at MedicAir
“Cooperation with MedicAir lets us widen our portfolio of Comarch FSM implementations within the healthcare industry. We are very happy to have this opportunity, as we are always very eager to partner with innovative companies such as MedicAir. This implementation also brings new challenges, as we have never operated in the Italian healthcare supply chain. To ensure the highest availability, solution will be hosted on Comach Cloud infrastructure” – said Mateusz Cieślak, Head of Consulting at Comarch FSM business unit.
