Our flagship program for cutting supply costs
National DME provides inventory outsourcing solutions to hospitals, physician practices, outpatient clinics and surgical centers.
National DME partners with facilities to provide medical equipment including orthopedic soft-goods, spine bracing, cold therapy and other modalities to patients in both
outpatient and inpatient settings. We take over the entire management of inventory including purchasing, warehousing and re-stocking at the shelf level. By outsourcing this
inventory, our practice partners save money in supply costs, obtain products from any manufacturer of their choosing and ensure consistent standards of care.
The National DME Inventory Outsourcing program is comprehensive and includes medical supplies in departments as diverse as occupational therapy, outpatient surgery,
emergency departments, inpatient departments and community clinics. The program is easy to implement and simple to operate. Inventory is delivered by uniformed personnel utilizing
the latest in information technology.
