Quantify present and future flows
Propose sources of optimization
Calculate the economic and qualitative gains
During pre-studies, LIFELINES supports hospitals in expressing needs and improving processes using industry-leading methodologies, including agile management, lean tools and nudging.
The deployment of such organizational and informational tools helps identify weaknesses in logistics circuits and provides simple and adapted support for decision-making and coordination processes for hospital staff.
The pre-study of logistic flows also allows to map flows, to evaluate possible improvements in pharmacy inventory management, to measure the respect of the cold chain and to analyze the economic and ecological impact of the solutions currently in place.
Prepare the Automation of transport by robots and/or drones thanks to our web application
Simplify and reduce transport preparation tasks
Define ROI indicators and dashboards
During the optimization phase, LIFELINES deploys software solutions to integrate logistics processes for automation.
The implementation of an APPLIFE mobile software, thanks to its advanced functionalities and a logistics database, allows to trace, quantify and model logistics flows.
A POC demonstrator of a logistics integration solution for intra- and inter-hospital transport is tested for a limited period of time. This demonstrator can integrate one or several links of the automated logistics chain: temperature-controlled connected box, autonomous rolling robot, autonomous flying drone.
Provide a turnkey service of intra-hospital transport by rolling robots and inter-hospital transport by flying drones.
Automate the traceability and respect of the cold chain per connected box
Free up health care staff from transport and monitoring tasks
The last step of LIFELINES’ intervention consists in deploying customized and previously tested solutions within the structure, in order to set up a turnkey and modular system for the transport of sensitive medical products.
The APPLIFE software integrates the software modifications suggested by staff feedback during the experimentation phase, as well as the parameterization necessary to connect the chosen machines to the logistics circuit.
The empowerment of logistics flows is the final outcome of the continuous improvement initiated in the engineering phase and finally allows management and nursing staff to delegate all logistics to concentrate more time on patient care.
