Solution to Provide Localized Management of Stockpiles, Vaccines, Public Health Assets, PPE and Antivirals to Improve Statewide Pandemic Response

Downers Grove, IL – Upp Technology, a leader in emergency preparedness and response solutions, announced today that the Arizona Department of Health Services (DHS) has selected irms|EM™ Emergency Management and irms|WM™ Warehouse Management to manage the state's public health emergency management resources. The software solutions provide the DHS with a robust, easy-to-use system for statewide, regional and county level management of pandemic response resources including vaccines, prophylaxis, treatment, medical supplies, and personal protective equipment (PPE).

During the State's response to H1N1 "swine" flu, the Arizona DHS found that having a functional, flexible inventory management system for products deployed by the Strategic National Stockpile (SNS), a Federal containment of large quantities of essential lifesaving supplies and medications, was critical. The DHS needed a proven software application that could manage SNS inventory from the CDC, deploy it throughout the State to county and Indian tribal sites, and provide visibility to inventory, shipping and receiving information enterprise-wide, in real-time.

irms|EM and irms|WM increase the speed and efficiency of Arizona's response to any emergency providing statewide visibility of public health resources to DHS officials and the ability to monitor inventory at local levels. Pre-configured for CBRNE, MCI and numerous other pandemic events, irms|EM and irms|WM provide confidence and surety when critical decisions must be based on real-time, accurate inventory information.

Built on 25 years of inventory management experience, Upp Technology's award-winning irms|EM and irms|WM software is a proven public health solution operating nationwide at the state, county and local level. The commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) software system is designed for flexibility, scalability and interoperability, virtually eliminating inaccurate data and inventory outages while streamlining labor-intensive tasks. From centralized statewide management to mobile field operations, irms|EM and irms|WM are ready to use, easy to configure and easy to operate.
