Oral Surgery practices need a way to keep track of their implant inventory -- what's in stock, what needs to be reordered, what needs to be in a particular office in advance of an upcoming appointment that will use that stock.
Same goes for Bone Graft materials.
Lot numbers need to be tracked and reported so that patient lists can be created with contact info in case of recall.
Surgical Drugs need to be tracked -- what is in stock, what has been used for which scheduled appointment/procedure (type, quantity), what has been discarded. This also needs to be reported on in case the DEA audits the practice.
Also need this for suture type used in any type of procedure. And Membrane materials.
Track quantities used/wasted for the drugs.
A bar code system integrated into the system would also assist the practice to sell bar-coded materials. Having the ability to create bar codes to slap onto something that they plan on selling would also be useful.
Manage the inventory stocked, the inventory used and ordering thresholds each have benefits.
