Operative IQ’s Inventory and Asset management solutions help first responders manage critical medical supply inventory and equipment efficiently in real-time amidst the Coronavirus Pandemic.

First Responders must regularly perform vehicle checks, inventory counts, expiration date audits, restock orders and verify equipment location and condition. Operative IQ is aiding agency readiness by standardizing processes and capturing information to assist in decision making that will ensure the availability of needed supplies and equipment.

Using an integrated Operative IQ check sheet, front-line providers capture availability and usage data which is used to calculate ideal stocking quantity for each item in any given supply room. The Manage Inventory Levels tool in Operative IQ analyzes average weekly usage along with demand variability for each item to calculate suggested stocking parameters. With increased national supply demand and longer order lead times, this tool enables providers to accurately forecast supply needs to stay ahead of the ordering curve.

With ideal stock levels and on-hand inventory counts established, Operative IQ assists agencies in ordering needed supplies by generating a draft purchase requisition for review. Orders can be submitted to suppliers in a variety of ways, but electronic processing of approved POs through Operative IQ’s integrated suppliers saves time, improves accountability and reduces errors. Integrated suppliers include Bound Tree Medical, Life-Assist, Moore Medical, McKesson Medical, Medline, Grainger and Office Depot.

Status Boards and reports provide first responders quick access to real-time supply levels, orders and status updates. EMS managers analyze detailed views of available inventory, expiration dates, supply usage and trends through Operative IQ to make sound decisions. Streaming access to this live, critical data allows agencies to proactively manage scarce resources in this rapidly evolving public health situation.

From Florida to Washington State, departments are currently taking advantage of Operative IQ’s RFID Automation Technology to quickly and accurately reconcile supply room on-hand inventory counts. Automation of this manual process saves time and improves inventory accuracy while freeing up field staff to provide medical care.

RFID handheld and fixed readers capture live inventory counts and expiration dates within minutes allowing logistics to restock needed supplies at outlying stations keeping them service ready. Operative IQ is also helping providers account for critical assets and life-saving equipment in the field. Crew can account for assets using an electronic check sheet on any device and Operative IQ’s RFID handheld reader takes it a step further by automating the verification of assigned assets on each unit within minutes through a quick scan of the truck.

In this public health crisis, Operative IQ is being used by thousands of public safety professionals on the front line and behind the scenes to ensure our first responders remain ready to serve.

EMS Technology Solutions offers cutting edge, affordable operations management software and products designed with First Responders in mind. Operative IQ Operations Management Software offers modules that include: Inventory Management & Asset Management, Integrated Purchasing, Fleet Maintenance, Service Desk Ticketing System and RFID Tracking.
