A New Challenge
We all know the challenges that the healthcare industry is facing right now. Emergency managers, administrators, and inventory/procurement departments at medical facilities have been scrambling to find needed protective gear and medical equipment to keep their staff and clients safe from the COVID-19 pandemic. Many hospitals and clinics are having to make hard choices about how to handle equipment shortages from N95 masks and other personal protective equipment (PPE) to respiratory ventilators.
Pronto has been working around the clock to help our clients quickly and seamlessly implement their technology recovery plans so that businesses can continue operations during the coronavirus disaster. As our team moved quickly to help our clients and partners around the world get the equipment that they needed, we realized that our recovery operations could be extended further to assist our healthcare clients in additional ways. Our experienced procurement, warehousing, and distribution teams already manage a variety of options to meet the needs of our clients. With the infrastructure that Pronto has already built, we can easily assist our clients in the healthcare industry to procure, store, and distribute the medical equipment that they need to combat future disasters.
Recovery Solutions for the Healthcare Industry
Its undeniable that the current global situation has changed the face of many industries. We have seen a very quick shift within the technology industry and have helped many businesses transition to a new way of working. As organizations within the healthcare industry seek to build resiliency they will need to develop plans to meet future threats of similar scale. What does it mean for a hospital or clinic to be ready for disaster? Organizations must develop a long term outlook and plan carefully for potential issues, including disruptions to their supply chain. In the face of COVID-19, many industry professionals in procurement, inventory, and logistics are seeing the lack of integrity in the current supply chain as they fight for equipment in a market with extremely high demand. Now, more than ever, the need for preparedness has been made very clear.
Preparing for an outbreak of similar scale will be challenging. For many organizations this will mean conducting new exercises to evaluate risk and building a surge capacity beyond what was previously believed to be adequate. Stockpiled equipment must also be carefully stored in a climate controlled environment, maintained, and replenished or rotated due to shelf-life limitations. Many organizations may not have the infrastructure and square footage in place to manage and store this inventory. Pronto is ready to help healthcare providers prepare for the future. By partnering with Pronto, hospitals, clinics, and other medical facilities can reserve the overflow supplies that they need, worry free. Our experience in procurement, inventory, logistics, and delivery makes us a natural partner for organizations who need help managing an offsite stock of medical equipment.
