What Is Healthcare Transportation?
Healthcare Transportation, or Intra-Company Logistics, is a calculated method for organizing the movement of physical materials to achieve greater operational efficiencies, more effectively utilize scale, eliminate redundancies and centralize services. Unlike a traditional medical courier that simply performs pickups and deliveries, a Healthcare or Laboratory Transportation Network by MedSpeed brings added strategic value.
+ Driving Efficiencies
A Healthcare or Laboratory Transportation Network is a customized, planned solution for moving physical materials throughout integrated delivery networks and reference laboratories. It encompasses everything from lab specimens, pharmaceuticals and blood to medical devices, office supplies and print communications. Research shows that most health systems manage logistics on a departmental level, leading to fragmentation, redundancies and added costs. A Healthcare Transportation Network consolidates all logistical operations and provides the expertise needed to create a single, customized system that improves operational efficiencies, enhances performance and manages costs.
+ Enabling Patient Care
With a MedSpeed Healthcare or Laboratory Transportation Network, your team can maintain its focus on what you do best – patient care – while gaining the benefits of a planned, streamlined and scalable network for logistics management. We also understand the importance of having the right material in the right place at the right time. That’s why MedSpeed concentrates on delivering quality – just like you – through exceptional people, advanced technologies and proven processes and systems that support the best in patient care.
+ Delivering Value
MedSpeed’s Healthcare and Laboratory Transportation Networks are designed to produce both operational efficiencies and cost savings. But our value exceeds dollars alone. Our partners also gain rich returns from greater satisfaction among clinicians, patients and staff; greater reliability in the movement of physical materials; and greater predictability in terms of effort, outcomes and costs.
