June 10, 2014

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 10, 2014

Hospital supply chain software developer Hybrent, Inc., has secured $500,000 in a seed round and has finished a case study validating its MMIS (materials management information system) overlay solution. The case study can be found on Hybrent's newly revamped web site. The financing round was composed almost entirely of management and health care supply chain experts.

An organization dedicated to solving real problems in hospital supply chains, Hybrent is the creator of GOO, a platform that smoothly combines the workflow of both supply chain and clinical teams. "We provide ground-breaking technology, business intelligence, and visibility beyond the limits of current enterprise systems to help our customers make better decisions when running their healthcare organization," said Hybrent CEO Ken Tighe.

Hybrent's management has a tremendous track record of success when it comes to building technology and successful companies. Tighe and co-founder Navneet Gosal were part of the founding team at CareFusion, which later went on to be acquired by Cardinal Health. Now, they have partnered with Harold Richards, a 20-year supply chain veteran to bring GOO to market.

The case study on Chicago'sIngalls Memorial Hospital documents how Hybrent's GOO platform reduced overstock of supplies by 16 percent in just 96 days. Hybrent's software eliminated double-ordering and hoarding of supplies, placed tracking and confirmation mechanisms on medical supply orders, and as a result increased the satisfaction that nurses felt towards the supply chain MMIS. "I used to deal with duplicate ordering, which was a big problem with limited storage space," said Becky Jakymec, Procedures Supervisor at Ingalls Memorial Hospital. "GOO shows me who fills my order and alerts me when supplies arrive. It has given me the transparency to know who to ask if I have a question about a supply order."
