InVivoLink of Nashville, TN has released an app across the major mobile platforms (including the iPad) to make the routine of medical device reps more streamlined. Instead of making calls and manually managing the delivery of devices, the system helps reps to automate the supply line and schedule procedures.
With the IVL mobile application, called “Remote Control,” important case and inventory data for surgeries literally is at the reps’ fingertips – instead of buried within piles of hard-to-read, difficult-to-access faxes or scribbled notes from phone calls. Whether using the mobile app or InVivoLink’s Web application on a laptop or netbook, IVL users work when, where and how they want, because critical events don’t just happen during “office hours.”
Syncing up with the implant distributor’s operations team, IVL’s mobile app allows sales reps to quickly and conveniently:
Use “Quick Codes” to save and schedule implant cases with pre-populated inventory lists for common procedures View inventory request status, and check individual and team case schedules Be immediately alerted to and access “physician-driven procedures” (when physicians schedule their own procedures using IVL’s platform, everyone sees the updates)
With IVL, medical device suppliers experience fewer errors due to improved workflows, along with enhanced case scheduling, inventory control, customer support and analytics. The less time reps have to spend flipping through faxes or on the phone with hospitals and physicians coordinating surgeries, the more time they have to build their businesses and add value to customers. Most importantly, reduced reliance on phone calls and manual processes results in fewer mistakes, better planning and improved patient safety.
For complicated procedures, reps can choose to work from their computers to manage and order inventory instead of on their mobile.
