Medline partners with VendNovation for automated vending solution

Oct. 18, 2022
Medline will distribute the company's Controlled Access Pharmacy (CAP) unit to help EMS providers enhance efforts to reduce medical supply waste and track inventory with real-time reporting.

Medline announced a new nationwide agreement with VendNovation, a provider of cloud-based automated vending solutions. Medline will distribute the company's Controlled Access Pharmacy (CAP) unit to help Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers enhance efforts around reducing essential medical supply waste and tracking inventory with real-time reporting.

VendNovation's CAP unit scans an EMS worker's ID badge, and all withdrawals, such as pharmaceuticals, respiratory and diagnostics products, are cataloged and time-stamped. The system provides alerts when inventory is low or products are near expiration. The software is able to generate a number of reports, including usage reports by individual personnel, re-stock lists and current inventory.

"Our distribution partnership with VendNovation is an extension of our commitment to find new ways to help EMS providers enhance operations, reduce costs and increase access to critical supplies," Rhonda Baliff, Medline EMS division manager, said in the announcement. "VendNovation has a long-standing history of bringing new technology to vending solutions and we're excited to expand their reach to the EMS sector to simplify inventory management tasks for our customers." 

Innovative technology from companies like VendNovation is helping reduce manual tracking of inventory, and EMS providers have reported cost savings exceeding 40%.
