In medical settings, the stakes are high, and the availability and location of highly distributed pharmaceuticals, medical supplies and equipment can mean everything.
Meanwhile, financial pressures are a constant, with each expenditure in need of justification.
With such high stakes and tight budgets, more hospitals, healthcare systems and long-term care facilities are realizing the cost-savings and heightened inventory control they receive by outsourcing their inventory data collection to professional inventory partners like RGIS.
Performed by our own certified personnel, RGIS provides fast, discreet and cost-effective counts for hospital inventory management, including:
Fixed asset inventories
Clinical supply inventories
Hospital supply chain inventories
RGIS has170 offices throughout the United States with data collection teams certified in healthcare-specific inventory counts. It’s a geographic presence that allows us to efficiently help healthcare organizations across the country, including those with multiple campuses, account for their physical assets while freeing up their high-value personnel to focus on patient care instead of inventory concerns.

RIMS (Remote Inventory Management System)
For maintaining inventory in remote locations, RGIS offers RIMS, a specialized hospital inventory management system. Once installed, RIMS tracks the usage of remote inventory locations, triggering messages when additional products are needed or when medicine is due to expire. It also incorporates a medicine rotation system that places medicines due to expire into an area where it is more likely to be used.

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) implementation is growing by leaps and bounds, turning hospitals into “smart hospitals.”
The technology, when used to tag clinical supplies, drugs and equipment, increases operational efficiencies, reduces shrinkage costs and improves patient care in hospitals, assisted living and nursing homes through improved tracking of resources.
RFID is also used to improve patient safety, raise the level of security in maternity wards, and offer better monitoring of patient drug allergies and food allergies in the meal ordering process.
To learn how RGIS can deliver and implement a variety of RFID systems in ORs, patient rooms, or across entire buildings, campuses and hospital supply chains, contact RGIS today.
Battery Test & Replace™
Clinicians rely on portable electronic devices for all kinds of purposes, and when those devices fail to keep charges, their unreliability hurts productivity and patient care.
To ensure that portable devices are providing clinicians, staff and administrators with the service times they need and expect, RGIS recently introduced Battery Test & Replace, a cost-effective field service that uses our proprietary technology to test rechargeable batteries, recycle unhealthy ones, and re-supply with new ones.
Fast, discreet, and less expensive than other approaches to power management, Battery Test & Replace gives employees portable devices they can rely on every day. Contact RGIS today for a quote.
