INDUSTRY OVERVIEW The healthcare system or the healthcare industry combine a wide array of companies, organizations, and institutions whose task is to promote and maintain good health and prevent and treat illnesses and injuries. This also includes, e.g., medical supply stores that offer an extensive range of medical aids and the respective all-round service. But specialized providers of medical devices (for instance respirators or dialysis devices), laboratories with different analysis focuses, and experts for health assessments are also active in this sector. Home care is a growing segment of the industry and is understood as the nursing care provided to patients both at home and in care or nursing homes. In fact, the importance of the entire sector is increasing exponentially due to the demographic development.
FLS SOFTWARE IN THE HEALTHCARE INDUSTRY The involved companies and people obviously need to rely on efficient processes due to the limited means available to the healthcare system. Furthermore, calls usually have to be implemented very soon after receiving them. Since a patient generally requires a bed, wheelchair or other services as soon as possible. This results in further requirements being placed on dynamic scheduling and the integration of other logistics processes such as material management. The software from FLS can make a significant contribution here. FLS helps renowned healthcare service providers such as Liftstar, ResMed, and Strehlow to improve their efficiency considerably through real-time appointment scheduling, automated route planning, and optimization.
