Pharma tech developer increases UNC Health’s footprint

Arxium strengthens health care network’s inventory capabilities


Arxium, a provider of automation, workflow and inventory management solutions who over three years ago added upgraded software to its RIVA pharmacy-compounding system, has completed a multi-year process that expands and integrates the UNC Health Shared Services Center, UNC Hospitals and Rex Hospital.

UNC Health utilizes RxWorks Pro, a supply management application which during Covid-19, has been helpful in providing available quantity on hand (QOH) information. It lets the informatics department remotely access RxWorks, enabling the health system to share QOH data for specific medications, such as remdesivir. The app’s virtual location feature helps manage Covid-related medication stock across all UNC facilities and provides real-time tracking and optimization of locations that experience the most demand.

Dr. Niels Erik Hansen, president and CEO of Arxium, observes that the battle against Covid-19 has been a difficult one, but it has reminded everyone of the need for logistical organization and the value of backlog analysis.

“ … While COVID presented unforeseen challenges,” he said, “it demonstrated a renewed importance of inventory management due to supply chain disruptions and other issues. As such, our mobile application has served as a timely solution for efficiently managing UNC’s Covid-related supplies.”
