Are you ready for UDI?

UDI compliance is a new “holy grail” in the medical device industry. Overcoming the UDI challenge with a legacy solution is daunting, if not impossible.

Atomic Inventory changes the game. Most medical inventory applications only track the bare minimum: current location and in the best cases you may be able to make reservations for individual items. Movemedical’s Atomic Inventory tracks each piece and then applies real-time attributes in order to create complete visibility and compliance.

With Atomic Inventory in Movemedical, UDI can be implemented whether or not a given piece is serialized. By using the atomic inventory process to apply real-time attributes to individual pieces, compliance is achieved, countless problems are solved, and doors to unprecedented efficiency and cost reduction are opened.

Envision that your job is to source product. Every day you navigate the complicated waters of locating products, trying to project where they will be and when, not having access to partial kits or future locations, and trying to think about the most efficient method of doing so along the way.

Now imagine that those problems suddenly disappear. Visualize that you have a compass that automatically guides you through the murky waters of complicated inventory management. Sourcing suggestions are automatic, and you have more options to choose from. The most optimal selections (based on cost and efficiency) are presented first. Loans for the day are optimized, reducing the number of shipments per day and amount of product shipped. Product gets delivered to customers sooner, and they are ecstatic. You revel in victory.
