3 Reasons Your Medical Office Should Use Medical Kits

To provide quality care to your patients, it's essential to have the right medical supplies. Though you can assemble the supplies for patient appointments and procedures by hand, another option is to order your medical kits preassembled.

Medical kits contain items that are frequently used together. There are medical kits packaged for surgical procedures, and there are kits for different types of medical examinations. Here are a few compelling reasons that your medical office should opt for medical kits.

1. Medical Kits Are More Cost-Effective

If you need to reduce your medical office's expenses, medical kits are often more cost-effective than ordering each component individually. Since the kits are pre-packaged and sold to numerous hospitals and medical offices, the manufacturer uses a streamlined process to produce a large number of kits in a short period.

This enables them to sell the kit at a lower per-item price (when compared to the per-item cost of ordering each item in the kit). When you compare the cost of assembling the kits yourself to the price of purchasing a pre-packed kit, you'll find that the kit is often the cheaper alternative (especially once you take into account the cost of labor for your employees who have to assemble the supplies).

2. Medical Kits Save Your Employees Time

Purchasing medical kits puts some time back in your employees' workdays. It's much quicker for your employees to grab a medical kit than to have to take time to gather each individual component prior to the procedure or appointment. If something changes and you need different supplies for an appointment, you can grab another type of kit that better meets your needs.

Assume an employee has to assemble an average of 8 kits a day and that it takes 5 minutes to assemble each kit. Your employee is spending 40 minutes a day assembling supplies. They can use this extra 40 minutes to better tend to your patients' needs, or they can work on administrative and reporting tasks that keep your office running smoothly. 

Employees will also be able to see patients quicker in emergency situations. They can just grab the appropriate kit for the medical emergency instead of scrambling to gather everything they need.

3. Medical Kits Help You Maximize Your Storage Space

Space is a limited resource for most medical offices. Instead of having to store multiple individual components in their own packages, you can store medical kits that have everything already together. Your supplies will also be better organized so that your employees can quickly find the kit they need.
