At Advanced, we know that in a busy operating theatre there is no time to update a database or checklist as items are used. That’s why we’ve developed an automated stock and inventory management system specifically for clinical use. It takes into account the needs of busy operating theatres, the variety of products you deal with and the way you handle and use supplies every day.

Our solution is your one-stop-shop for stock and materials management, operation recording and reporting. In addition to the efficiency and cost saving benefits, our Patient-Level Resource Management solution (PRM) also provides you with a highly configurable graphical reporting function.

Using PRM, which provides a slicker and more automated stock management process, stock checks can now be done with a touch of a button.

PRM provides the intelligence around product spend and usage to enable meaningful supplier negotiations, enabling the procurement of cost-effective products. With patient- level product detail available, this can also enable an analysis of the products and product lines being used, how much they are costing and spend per surgeon.
