Managing the supply of medical gases should be secure, effective and easy. Depending on the market, our services may include:
QI® Tracking. Online web service - from receipt to user to cylinder return
QI Tracking cylinder management is a straightforward service that enables the hospital facility to follow and use information about the location and status of its gas cylinders throughout the healthcare facility. This can help to, for example, reduce the number of lost cylinders, locate cylinders in an urgent recall situation, trace cylinders from a given batch at a recall, optimise cylinder use, reduce the time spent on administration and itemise cost to different users in the hospital.
Generally, QI Tracking services work via scanning of an identification tag or label for the collection and storage of traceability data. This data is fed into a computer database, via installed software or a web server. Hospital staff can easily access the information as needed to trace cylinders, check stock levels or optimize needed stock on ward level, etc.
The advantages of QI Tracking go beyond traceability. You can assess cylinder utilisation and allocation from an economic and facilities management perspective. A range of automatically generated reports may include updated information on location, stock levels, cylinder rotation, expiration dates, lost cylinders, cylinder balance and safety.
QI® Securesupply: Remote monitoring of onsite stocks
QI Securesupply is a surveillance and remote control solution designed to help the hospital pharmacist or technician get information on and manage stock of central sources of medical gas. The automatic gas supply system is based on remote control and telemetry, could be both for the bulk gas supply as well as the cylinder supply situation. When supply reaches pre-determined levels, an order process is started by an electronic signal and prompts information about needed delivery of cylinders or the refilling of the bulk tank at the hospital.
The service enables savings in time and resources for continuous monitoring and re-ordering and avoids inadvertent stock outs. The supply process is secure and hospitals achieve optimised medical gas logistics.
