Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton selects Logi-D RFID-enabled 2BIN-iD replenishment system to manage general supplies
November 22, 2013. Camp Pendleton, California – Naval Medical Logistics Command (NMLC) has awarded Logi-D a contract to implement 2BIN-iD, the patented RFID-enabled point-of-use two-bin replenishment solution, into Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton.
Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton is in the final stages of transitioning to H200, a new four-story 500,000 square foot replacement facility, in which the Logi-D 2BIN-iD solution will be implemented to manage replenishment of over 8,500 SKUs across 37 different inpatient and outpatient locations within the facility.
Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton selected Logi-D’s 2BIN-iD solution as a way to “minimize clinical involvement in supply chain activities, minimize waste in replenishment activities, increase inventory efficiency by tying ordering to consumption, reduce STAT orders and maintain a high level of inventory accuracy,” as cited by NMLC. 2BIN-iD RFID technology will be retrofitted to the facility’s previously purchased high-density storage equipment configured in a two-bin/KANBAN environment.
Beyond minimizing both clinical and support staff involvement, the Logi-D 2BIN-iD automated point-of-use solution optimizes the replenishment process through real-time consumption data collection driven by RFID technology. Based on the lean two-bin replenishment system and requiring no counting or data entry, it controls inventory levels and stock rotation and helps prevent disruptive stockouts, subsequent urgent orders, and stock wastage due to product expiration. By adding RFID technology onto its existing two-bin/KANBAN environment, Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton will also gain access to the analytics it needs to operate an accurate and efficient supply chain without compromising consistent stock availability in user departments.
Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton will be the second military hospital implementation this year for Logi-D. In February of 2013, Walter Reed National Military Medical Center announced implementation of the 2BIN-iD point-of-use technology into its nursing units and OR. “We are pleased to have the opportunity to replicate the gains and successes demonstrated in Bethesda earlier this year,” explains Richard Philippe, founder and CEO of Logi-D. “We are bringing to Naval Hospital Camp Pendleton a solid and skilled team whose experience within a military environment will support the success of this 2BIN-iD project”.
