Swisslog Healthcare Exhibits Supply Chain Management Solutions at the Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management Conference

Denver, CO, July 17, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Swisslog Healthcare, a leading supplier of automation and software solutions for hospitals and health systems, will exhibit supply chain management solutions at the Association for Healthcare Resource and Materials Management (AHRMM) Conference and Exhibition, July 23-26 in Washington, DC.

 

“As health systems expand their reach across the continuum of care, we strive to support the entire supply chain management process, starting with consolidated service centers,” explains Stephan Sonderegger, CEO of Swisslog Healthcare. “By centralizing resources, such as supply management and pharmacy services, our clients realize significant cost savings while improving service to care-delivery sites.”

 

The company supports consolidated service center management through the broadest portfolio of solutions in the market, including building design, warehouse management software and goods-to-person automation. At the AHRMM conference, attendees will see a demonstration of AutoStore®, the Swisslog technology used to automate the loading, storage and picking of split-case and low-unit-of-measure (LUM) SKUs.

 

Consolidated service centers and self-distribution are  key strategies for health systems looking to reduce costs and streamline inventory. Swisslog Healthcare, in partnership with the Journal of Healthcare Contracting, published research on consolidated service centers and self-distribution in April of this year. Among these findings is that 26% of US health systems are considering self-distribution as a vehicle for achieving challenging financial objectives. View the research summary here.

 

In addition to supply management services, more than 2,300 hospitals in the United States leverage the company’s automation solutions, including consolidated pharmacy distribution. Swisslog enables multi-site pharmacy distribution through its inventory management software, which is built on the same platform as its Warehouse Management System (WMS).
