The primary driver behind this offer is our belief that cost and budget constraints should not be the factors that define the decision-making process in times of crisis

In the wake of COVID-19, hospitals are struggling to locate and access the life-saving tools that healthcare providers need. Critical supplies like personal protective equipment are dwindling, while other valuable assets are lost or misplaced in the shuffle – significantly impeding the delivery of timely quality care.
To support this accelerated need for streamlining the healthcare supply chain, ConnectSx announced that it will offer hospitals free access to its medical inventory management software for at least the next six months.
“The ability to quickly identify and efficiently manage medical assets is imperative in the current environment. Hospitals need to know what supplies are available and where they’re located, so they can find the equipment they need to deliver critical care,” said ConnectSx co-founder and CEO, Chris Riedel. “By efficiently sharing information across the supply chain, hospitals can expedite their access to inventory.”
ConnectSx provides Software-as-a-Service solutions designed to simplify hospital inventory control and other complex workflows – reducing the administrative overhead of manual processes, while preventing errors and omissions that can delay care and lead to lost revenue.
Using secure web-based tools and mobile applications to streamline time-consuming inventory tasks, ConnectSx aims to offer some relief to busy clinical teams in response to COVID-19.
“The primary driver behind this offer is our belief that cost and budget constraints should not be the factors that define the decision-making process in times of crisis,” Riedel said, “especially when it comes to implementing tools that support critical healthcare operations by reducing the impact on clinical staff.”
In addition to helping providers find and acquire critical supplies in real-time, ConnectSx also enables hospitals to share device-related knowledge remotely – facilitating supply chain operations with limited contact. Medical sales reps, who typically bear a significant share of asset management responsibility, may now be restricted from entering clinical settings – making remote access to inventory information even more valuable throughout the hospital supply chain.
Although ConnectSx is initially extending free access to hospitals and ambulatory surgery centers for the next six months, Riedel said that “the flexibility of this timeline will be driven by the rate of recovery, rather than a fixed period of time.” The company’s goal is to provide clinical teams with easy access to its inventory management platform by making implementation as fast and frictionless as possible, so that healthcare providers can focus on delivering timely quality care more efficiently.
