IT4process case cart logistics

The case cart approach is a way to efficiently provide sterile goods and material for operations. According to the resource requirements for individual cases, employees pick one or more case carts to ensure the just-in-time supply of the operation.

But all case carts are not the same. Just as spatial conditions and processes differ in hospitals, there are also different variations of the case cart approach. For example, case carts can be picked by different groups of people in different locations – by logistics personnel but also by surgical care personnel, in the CSSD, in the case cart stock or in the operating room area. Therefore, it is essential to create individual case cart concepts and solutions. We support you in finding and implementing the optimal solution for your house.
