SEACAT-Schmeding developed a system that makes it possible to get a quick overview of the ship’s medicine. This helps the person responsible for the medical supplies on board ensure that the medicine is always ready. Just in case something unfortunate should happen.
When a ship sails out, it is important that it is carrying medicine to cover all scenarios. However, a large proportion of the supplies will not be used. This means there is a high risk that many of the medical products will pass their expiration date.
It’s important that the person responsible for the medicine on board the ship has an overview of the shelf life information. If this is not the case, it could prove fatal to the crew. Ultimately, the person responsible for the medical supplies may risk being sentenced to up to two years in prison if missing or expired products is shown to have caused a lack of treatment on board.
