Buyers guide


Last Updated: July 1, 2019

Medical inventory software is tailored to track healthcare specific products such as medications, surgical supplies, wheelchairs and more. Inventory tracked can range from pharmaceuticals to lab kits to MRI machines. The program can track medicine expiration dates, the maintenance schedule for equipment, store Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) information and manage the stock levels and location of individual items.

What Is Medical Inventory Software?

Medical inventory software is used to track medical supplies and prescription drugs within a single practice or an entire hospital system.

Main features typically include tracking and receiving, dispensing, storage, maintenance and recall of products. Many systems will place replenishment orders, track purchase orders, be configurable to keep your practice HIPAA compliant and integrate to your other business systems.

Benefits of Medical Inventory Software

The general benefits of any medical inventory system are increased operational efficiency, reduced time and labor and improved practice profitability. These benefits stem from different features and impact organizations in different ways.

For example:

  • Control costs by buying the right amount of the right product at the right time. Reduce overstocks and products expiring before use.
  • Accurately track drug/item details and location to reduce misuse.
  • Automatically alert employees to product recalls; the software provides a report of the item's location and details to ensure compliance with recalls.
  • Manage inventory across the business with improved visibility into stock levels, item details and other pertinent information to make informed decisions.

Cardinal Health reports that one in four operating room doctors and nurses feel that “automated systems free up time to focus on patients and support better outcomes" and 39 percent agree that "automation reduces costs."

Business Sizes Using Medical Inventory Software

This software is used by pharmacies, hospitals and private practices across a variety of specialties—there's no "typical" business size. The requirement to accurately manage inventory in the health industry makes the need for software universal.

For business size, you'll generally fall into one of the following categories:

  • Single user. The smallest businesses consist of only one owner/employer such as real estate agents, freelancers or independent contractors.
  • Small business buyer. These are companies with 2 to 100 employees that have no IT department.
  • Midsize business buyer. These are companies that have 101 to 1,000 employees and a dedicated IT department.
  • Large business buyer. These are large companies that have more than 1,000 employees and a dedicated IT department.
