What is cloud-based healthcare inventory management?

December 28, 2022

Cloud-based healthcare inventory management is the monitoring and maintenance of a hospital’s inventory using online inventory management software. These cloud-based applications streamline the inventory management process by providing real-time updates that reduce common mistakes associated with traditional methods of measuring stock levels in hospitals. The main benefits of cloud-based inventory management are:

  • The customer doesn’t have to invest in servers and other technology hardware
  • Maintenance is handled by the software provider
  • The customer is always on the most up-to-date version, which is pushed out automatically
  • Security is often less of a concern in cloud-based software
  • It’s easily scalable, meaning more users/departments can be easily added
