EAGAN, MN: Jump Technologies, provider of software solutions for improved supply management in hospitals signs an agreement with Illucient Purchasing Alliance for delivering JumpStock inventory management and InnerTrack receiving and package tracking solutions. Illucient Purchasing Alliance is a joint venture between Coastal Carolinas Health Alliance (CCHA) and the Southern Atlantic Healthcare Alliance (SAHA). JumpTech provides cloud-based mobile solutions for hospitals and health systems which are mainly focused in the improvisation of visibility and management of supplies from dock-to-destination.

Offering greater visibility to supplies throughout a healthcare system, JumpStock inventory management affordably eliminates stock-outs, reduces overstocking and over-spending.  The solution facilitates easy and automated recording of all supply transactions, credible reporting of supply velocity and derives informed stock-level decisions, which in return leads to better supply planning and management.

"Illucient Purchasing Alliance was created with the goal of enabling members to pursue cost reduction opportunities while supporting quality," explains Derrick Billups, Executive Director of Illucient. "Our partnership with Jump Technologies can help Illucient members achieve those goals."

InnerTrack receiving and package tracking is yet another solution extended from JumpTech which delivers automation and smart workflow to a healthcare organizations receiving process, significantly reducing staff time and improved visibility and documentation. The data will be captured as packages on a smart device based on a simple user interface that is loaded off delivery trucks, and providing a track of the entire transaction to final delivery. The solution brings down the time consumed on research about incoming shipments for internal customers, including doctors, nurses and supply chain technicians. InnerTrack extends visibility to the entire end-to-end, dock-to-destination process.

"With healthcare costs accelerating, hospitals and healthcare systems can look for technology to drive new efficiencies. But those technologies need to reduce - not add - costs. By moving inventory and supply management into the cloud, hospitals can gain functionality beyond the reach of current ERP systems, and make great improvements in automation without spending on hardware and software upgrades,” says John Freund, CEO, Jump Technologies.
