MONTREAL, July 14, 2021 / CNW / – Tecsys Inc.

With this investment, McLeod Health will be able to leverage end-to-end supply chain data to streamline supply chain operations, from planning and receiving to consumption and replenishment, creating a flexible ecosystem that can grow and develop with the organization.
“We have achieved significant savings through our consolidated service center by optimizing back office operations, and we look forward to extending these Tecsys benefits to our hospital network to build on these successes,” said Carmen winfield, vice president of procurement at McLeod Health. “With Tecsys in our clinical areas, our organization will have access to more accurate usage data and analysis. This helps us be more efficient and better positioned to make strategic supply chain decisions that maintain our standards of excellence while maximizing inventory availability and controlling costs. ”

Nursing and intervention areas (operating theaters, cath labs and interventional radiology rooms) will be equipped with technology designed for clinically integrated workflows in each area; these technologies include a combination of activation software, RFID and barcode technology, mobile devices and integrated user interfaces. This comprehensive deployment will provide exceptional visibility across the healthcare system while eliminating manual redundancies often assumed by clinical staff.
