  • Publication number: 20220139507
    Abstract: Examples are described herein for using medical test results to trigger routine for medical supply replenishment. In various examples, based on a result of a medical test administered to a subject at a first medical facility, it may be determined that the subject has an exogenous medical condition. In response to determining that the subject has the exogenous medical condition, a message may be transmitted over a computer network from a computing device associated with the first medical facility to a remote computing device associated with a second medical facility. The message may trigger the remote computing device to initiate a routine to replenish medical supplies associated with the exogenous medical condition at the second medical facility.
