ZTE today said it implemented an intelligent pharmacy logistics and information-based pharmacy system project for the Ministry of Health in Venezuela.
This project, for which ZTE and the Venezuelan Ministry of Health signed a contract in April 2011, includes an intelligent pharmacy supply chain management system, five large automated drug distribution centers, and digital systems in regional hospitals. It will enable nationwide warehousing and distribution of drugs and pharmacy devices, and implement digitalization in some hospitals to improve national healthcare in the country.
ZTE said the intelligent pharmacy logistics and information-based pharmacy system is the first large intelligent health system in Venezuela. This system, focused on an intelligent pharmacy supervision system, is a private healthcare network based on optical transmission, wireless bridge transmission, and virtual private network technologies, and provides intelligent drug purchase, order processing, inventory management, transport management, planning, and business intelligence functions.
The intelligent pharmacy logistics and information-based pharmacy system will resolve the drug management challenges faced by Venezuela and will make intelligent drug management a reality. The visual management and automated warehousing processes can reduce the cost of drug logistics, and improve pharmacy management and healthcare throughout the country.
