JumpTech Announces InnerTrack™ Receiving and Package Tracking Solution for Hospitals and Healthcare Delivery Organizations
Eagan, MN – August 6, 2015 – Jump Technologies®, an innovative software company that provides cloud-based mobile solutions for inventory management in hospitals, today announced the release of the InnerTrack™ receiving and package tracking solution, which increases visibility to supplies received and delivered to all locations within an organization.
Supply chain management in hospitals is fraught with manual, disconnected processes, which cause higher costs through labor, errors and rework, poor reporting capabilities, and inaccurate information about supply inventory. Increasing visibility to supplies throughout the system, capturing data electronically, and automating manual labor will help hospitals build more effective business processes that ultimately reduce costs. The fully-integrated InnerTrack solution allows hospital staff members to accurately manage and document the entire receiving process, from the moment a truck off-loads a shipment at the dock through delivery to the final destination of each item.
Many organizations use manual processes requiring hours of staff time each day to receive, stage, deliver and track packages coming into the system. There is little visibility to shipments in transit within the hospital and as a result, supply chain and clinical team members waiting for supplies often spend hours trying to locate packages. Additionally, hospitals may have no method in place to track and record the routing of a package from the dock to final destination, and capture the signature of the recipient, creating an electronic proof of delivery record.

Cloud-based InnerTrack provides automation and smart workflow to the receiving and delivery process, significantly reducing staff time and improving visibility and documentation. With InnerTrack, a simple user interface on a smart device begins capturing data at the loading dock, as packages are loaded off the delivery truck. Packages usually arrive without a final delivery location designated on the outside shipping label. InnerTrack integrates with major delivery carriers, including UPS and FedEx, so as packages are scanned into the system, they are matched to the purchase order (PO). InnerTrack identifies the final destination within the health system, prints a label for each box, and packages are staged for delivery, making routing and delivery faster and simpler. Once loaded onto carts for delivery, packages assigned to each route are scanned, creating tracking of the package as it’s routed within the organization.
The InnerTrack solution helps ensure:
- Every incoming package is quickly scanned into the system for continuous tracking
- Users throughout the system can log-in to locate packages that have been received by the facility and see precisely where they are in the receiving and delivery process
- An electronic record of the incoming shipment and proof of delivery to the final recipient is created
- At any point during the process (at the receiving dock, during routing, or by the end-user), the shipment contents can be matched to the corresponding PO, with any outstanding items identified for follow-up
- Completed POs can be quickly closed with an InnerTrack-generated EDI 856 (Advanced Ship Notice) submitted to the MMIS or ERP, reducing the time it takes to close a PO and creating an opportunity for early payment discounts
InnerTrack reduces the time spent researching information about shipments and delivery status, researching items needed to allow POs to be closed, and creates visibility to the entire end-to-end, receipt-to-delivery process.
