Aurora Health Care installs ScriptPro Inventory System
Aurora Health Care in Milwaukee, Wis., has implemented ScriptPro’s SIM in order to have real-time inventory tracking, order generation, electronic transmission, and receiving.
SIM is integrated with Aurora’s SP Central Workflow System from ScriptPro to synchronize perpetual-inventory records with workflow in the pharmacy.
Mike Coughlin, ScriptPro CEO, notes that a powerful inventory management system is a triple win. “Cash is freed up by reducing excess stock, there is a reduction in out-of-stock items through accurate records and automated ordering, and pharmacy staff is relieved of manual tasks so they have more time for serving patients,” he says.
Aurora Health Care, a not-for-profit provider, serves communities throughout eastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
