Growing health systems need technology that can grow with them.
Ochsner is a health system that’s expanding its number of sites. But with every new site came another location independently and manually managing drug shortages. With its growing number of hospitals, and data, and commitment to providing exceptional patient care, Ochsner recognized it needed a solution that would support systemwide drug shortage tracking and management so it could strengthen coordination of purchasing and distribution of drugs.
“What I appreciate most about OrbitalRX is that we now have consolidated and transparent inventory management,” said Oliver Jackson IV, pharmacy supply chain coordinator at Ochsner. “We can see the real-time, perpetual inventory amounts, alongside updates from our wholesalers, and alternatives. Rather than having to go into different systems to find that data, I can now see it all in one central location.”
When asked about OrbitalRX’s capabilities, Jackson acknowledged not only the flexibility of the platform but also the team at OrbitalRX. “What stood out about OrbitalRX was that they grew with us and our needs. Even if the capability wasn’t something they offered initially, they were willing to make adjustments to the platform to accommodate our needs. OrbitalRX helped us bridge the gap in communicating drug shortages to our team,” he said.
