OM HealthCare Logistics (OM HCL), a new business unit of Owens & Minor, has adopted RedPrairie Corporation’s warehouse management system to direct operations of its flagship third-party logistics distribution center. OM HCL is using the system for medical device and pharmaceutical distribution and management, and will also use it for kitting and serialization track and trace for its clients in the future.
“Our organization needed a solution that could handle complex domestic and international distribution requirements, as well as compliance with FDA regulations,” said Denise Odenkirk, OM HealthCare Logistics vice-president. “We ship to multiple types of clients—hospitals, integrated healthcare systems, distributors, physicians, alternate care locations, sales representatives, and the federal government—so the solution had to be effective for all of them. RedPrairie’s experience in dealing with healthcare companies has helped us optimize operations in our warehouse.”
OM HCL employs the system to provide clinical supply samples as well as reverse logistics. RedPrairie’s warehouse management system handles many tasks associated with those operations, along with functionality designed to enable compliance, recall management, and expiry date notification.
Founded in Richmond VA in 1882, Owens & Minor distributes medical and surgical supplies to the acute-care market and provides healthcare supply chain management systems.Visit Owens & Minor online at www.owens-minor.com.
