Point-of-Use/Mobile Technology

Leverage mobile computers, automated data collection, and wireless technology for efficient paperless inventory processes. The point-of-use technology allows for simpler synchronization with billing systems and shows the supply items consumption history.

Streamlined Supply Chain

Healthcare Materials Management streamlines your consumption-based supply chain management, reducing costly inefficiencies. It also optimizes your supply chain by providing deep control of your requisitions, procurement, fulfillment & consumption processes.

Greater Visibility & Efficiency

By making the entire purchasing process much more visible and efficient, HMM allows you to measure and analyze item consumption across all departments. This will in-turn reduce inventory levels and associated acquisition problems.

HMM’s Latest Major Enhancements: Materials Management Portal & Supply Requisitions Portal

Materials Management Portal (MMP)

The new MMP supports all mobile computers using HTML5 software, expanding the selection of mobile computers healthcare providers can choose from while lowering overall costs through cheaper licensing. Not only will this shift to HTML5 enable healthcare providers greater autonomy in mobile computer choice, but also a lower price point for operating mobile computers overall. HTML5 functions using an internet browser whereas our old software platform MCL uses an application and requires hefty licensing costs to operate.

Supply Requisitions Portal (SRP)

Binary Stream’s new HMM Supply Requisitions Portal allows anyone with a mobile or desktop computer the opportunity to replenish inventory from a workstation on an ad hoc basis. Similar to other requisition software, the portal minimizes the number of fully licensed Dynamics GP users a healthcare provider must purchase. Using Binary Stream’s portal provides healthcare facilities the opportunity to purchase a single healthcare solution instead of implementing third party requisition software, which is often costly and contains unused functionality.


Mobile Support

Mobile computers scan SKUs primarily in consumption sites to determine whether inventory reaches PAR. If inventory does not reach PAR, the mobile device will prompt the user to request materials, determining by itself whether the inventory will replenish from a central storage facility or outside vendor. These devices improve the accuracy of patient material charges to your billing system, whether it be a stock or non-stock item charges through easy to process issuance.

Additionally, mobile devices along with mobile computers can replenish inventory on an ad-hoc basis. Mobile computers also include the capability to print labels with ease from anywhere within the system, including at receiving.

Healthcare Materials Management

With materials management as the second highest cost center for many hospitals and clinics with central stores, effective supply chain management has never been more important. HMM optimizes your supply chain by providing deep control of your requisitions, procurement, fulfillment and consumption processes.
