AeroScout Acquires Sentient Health

AeroScout, a provider of Unified Asset Visibility solutions for the healthcare industry, has announced its acquirement of Sentient Health, which provides software and services to hospitals in order to optimize the inventory management of their consumable medical supplies. The acquisition complements and builds on AeroScout’s portfolio of healthcare solutions that hospitals around the world rely on to increase operational efficiency and improve patient safety and care.

According to a report by the independent, not-for-profit standards organization GS1 UK, the top two technologies identified by nurses to help them improve efficiency and patient safety were: 1.) technologies that provide real-time views of stock levels (63 percent); and 2.) technologies for tracking the location of equipment electronically (56 percent). With its acquisition of Sentient Health, AeroScout now offers solutions in both of these areas: AeroScout’s Asset Tracking and Management solution and Sentient Health’s MedTrac solution for supply chain visibility.

Hospitals use Sentient Health’s MedTrac software to automate supply chain management of consumable medical supplies, such as stents, syringes, and gloves. Tracking these items is a complex and time-consuming process that is typically handled manually by hospital staff. The manual approach, however, is inefficient and error-prone, which drives up costs and diverts time away from caring for patients. With MedTrac, healthcare providers are able to manage their inventories and automate procurement, increasing efficiency while reducing operating costs and saving staff time.

Meanwhile, AeroScout provides Healthcare Visibility Solutions to over 450 hospital customers worldwide.

“AeroScout continues to extend its leadership position in healthcare, with strong demand for our healthcare visibility solutions worldwide,” said Yuval Bar-Gil, CEO of AeroScout. “The acquisition of Sentient Health adds supply chain visibility and optimization to our portfolio.”

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
