Creating requisitions to reserve inventory that will be needed in the future can be especially useful to contractors and surgery centers.
Many times, prime contractors have sub-contractors that need to get material from the prime contractor. However, sometimes the sub-contractor does not have the authority to pull the material; he needs approval from someone. The process of capturing the material the subcontractor needs and notifying the individual who has the authority to approve it is all included in the Requisition Feature. When approved, pulls can occur straight from the requisition and the subcontractor receives his material.
The TrackStock Optimize Plan includes the Requisition feature that lets users reserve medical supplies they know they will need for an upcoming procedure. This keeps healthcare companies in perfect communication with their medical supply distributors about upcoming ACTUAL demand, not just forecasted demand, an important distinction. In Requisitions, customers can communicate actual future demand to their distributors.
If a nurse in an Ambulatory Surgery Center (ASC) knows exactly what procedure will be performed on a patient next week, he can enter each of those items into a requisition. The requisition will create demand in the “stockroom” and automatically trigger orders for items where the requisition will use more items than are on-hand. The “required date” is also specified, guiding the distributor to know exactly what items in what quantities are needed by what date to keep the ASC operational.
