Resourceful consulting background
A pedigree of successful supply chain process transformations
We began as TRIAX Consulting®, a consulting services group specializing in healthcare logistics. This heritage evolved into TRIAX-iD, a Logi-D service offering distinctive and specialized consulting services to healthcare organizations aimed at improving the supply chain through the optimization and automation of material-related processes. Our consulting and research experience has provided us with an in-depth understanding of dominant healthcare supply chain issues.
To a great degree, although not limited to this focus, our consulting services are used to simulate impacts and ensure the optimal use of Logi-D’s leading-edge automation solutions. These detailed, reliable business cases are invaluable roadmaps to our resourceful transformations.
Resourceful process transformation
Supply chain automation is widely recognized to generate substantial gains. With a proven track record of industry-leading paybacks backed by post-implementation measurements, we can clearly quantify identified issues and their financial implications to determine appropriate investment levels to resolve these issues.
Turnkey transformation services
Logi-D supports the entire implementation of its solutions in order to ensure that the results of the project are aligned to the objectives. Our implementation support is backed by a unique and proprietary methodology. This proven methodology is adapted to each client’s needs and context and takes into account the hospital’s existing environment and the internal resources assigned to the transformation project. During the logistics planning phase, we apply our unique expertise acquired as a highly specialized hospital supply chain consulting group to optimize the inventory setting and streamline the processes, while our proven G.O.L.F. (Go Live Fast) method assures minimal disruption and a rapid transformation.
The performance metrics we impact:
Excess inventory value
Manual and error-prone demand assessment leads to surplus safety stock being amassed to prevent disruptive stockouts and subsequent urgent orders. Decreased on-hand inventory levels are achieved through the increased demand capture accuracy that comes with automating the demand chain.
Excess inventory leads to slow turns and an inconsistent stock rotation practice during replenishment. This, along with inadequate traceability, put valuable inventory at risk of expiring. This risk is reduced through automated inventory management, which drives faster turns, while expiry traceability and improved stock rotation practices can virtually eliminate the risk altogether.
Standardization of physician preference items (PPI)
One of the key challenges in driving behavioral change among physicians is the lack of accurate usage data to achieve evidence-based optimization. With automated usage data capture and a robust interface engine connecting to all required host applications, outcomes with specific devices and supplies can be tracked, empowering standardization efforts across the front line of service.
Confusion over which items are chargeable and a low compliance rate for manual charge capture practices drive revenue leakage across the front line of service. This can be avoided by segregating and clearly identifying product categories while aligning automated usage data capture to workflows.
With typical shelving, supplies tend to accumulate at the front of shelves, underutilizing space in the back, while the tallest item on the shelf determines shelf height, resulting in wasted space. High-density ISO storage offers a space-conscious and ergonomic design featuring extractable modules to maximize utilization horizontally while minimizing the distance between modules, vertically reducing the storage footprint by 30% – 50%.
Releasing clinical time
Having the right item at the right time and place is critical to clinical productivity. Disruptive stockouts, an inefficient inventory environment, and manual transcribing can erode up to 15% of a shift. An efficient demand chain drives accurate demand response, while streamlining inventory based on lean principles enhances the clinical environment.
Releasing material management time
An automated demand chain eliminates the need for manual demand assessments, while increased accuracy reduces the time spent on stockouts and subsequent urgent orders
