Supply Point Systems, Leicester, UK acquired MDI Solutions’ integration engine, MD Link, to enable real-time interoperability between their drug dispensing cabinet system and hospital organizations. They are now set to deploy MD Link in 3 hospital trusts to further enhance the efficiencies their solutions offers to healthcare.

Supply Point Systems are world leaders in inventory management and control, having worked with the military and other industries. With their expansion in healthcare, they quickly recognized that they would need to communicate with hospital systems via HL7 and in such a way that maximized the efficiency of their medication management system. MD Link will be used to manage multiple real-time inbound and outbound interfaces, and monitor activity to minimize service interruptions. Royal Wolverhampton is set to implement the drug dispensing cabinet and EHR connectivity via MD Link, which will be followed by two additional trusts in the UK.

SupplyPoint Systems are world leaders in the design and manufacture of secure, point-of-use inventory management systems. Their highly automated systems are revolutionizing the way companies and institutions manage and control the delivery critical items at the point-of-use.
