Standvast Healthcare Fulfillment is an early-stage supply chain technology company with a patent-pending fulfillment solution serving hospitals and healthcare providers. Providers today struggle with bloated inventories, unpredictable stock-out rates, and a complex supply chain that frustrates clinicians in their efforts to serve patients. The inefficiencies of today’s solutions are further exposed during the COVID-19 pandemic leaving healthcare providers struggling to safely provide assurance and treatment to the general public during the height of the epidemic. 

Standvast Fulfillment Systems are designed to meet the standards of high-velocity mass customized e-commerce orders and custom-built to fulfill supply orders securely into hospitals and other provider locations. The systems are cloud-based, HIPAA compliant, and designed to connect the previously disjointed electronic medical record systems and the supply chain systems to close the loop from the patient back to the manufacturer. The integration allows clinicians visibility into inventory levels, orders, and timely business intelligence through simple interfaces accessible across multiple devices and platforms. The Standvast Analytics technology leverages the latest advances in cloud and machine learning to convert the data captured into valuable information to improve supply chain transparency, product selection, pricing, and patient care quality.  

Standvast was founded by a seasoned leadership team that has led early-stage to large, globally diverse organizations through transformative times, creating numerous e-commerce, supply chain, and technology innovations (Amazon, Google, IBM, TNT, Zulily, etc.). The team brings expertise in Operations, Supply Chain, Technology, Business Development, Customer Support – experienced in highly complex leadership and technical challenges creating organizations that delivered innovation and sustained excellence across multiple industries in the US and around the world
