3PL x DME for Digital Health

Updated: Feb 14

Digital Health logistics have exploded, and Impilo supports digital health companies shipping connected devices to patients. To do this, Impilo is both a third-party logistics (3PL) and Durable Medical Equipment (DME) supplier.

Third-Party Logistics

A third-party logistics (3PL) company stores inventory and will pick, pack, and ship your products.

3PLs are a vital link between your operations and customers (or patients). With streamlined order fulfillment, patients receive shipments and engage efficiently, a key piece in remote health program operations.

There are many 3PLs out there, and it's important to understand what you're looking for. Many 3PLs are optimized for eCommerce solutions, and it's important to ask about any special requirements your products or fulfillment requires.

Impilo is a Digital Health 3PL with no inventory or order minimum, completely customizable fulfillment, and connected device support for tablets and patient pairing.

Durable Medical Equipment

Durable medical equipment (DME) is equipment that helps patients complete daily activities, including blood pressure monitors and respiratory support devices.

Equipment from DMEs should be:

  • Durable, meaning it is able to withstand repeated use

  • Serves a medical purpose

  • Appropriate for use in the home, although you can also use it outside the home

  • And, is likely to last for three years or more

Impilo provides digital health programs with quality, durable medical devices. Browse our device catalog for the best in smart medical devices.


Why 3PL and DME?

Impilo's third-party logistics are optimized for many types of digital health solutions.

We quickly discovered our clients wanted recommendations on the best devices for their program, factoring in price, reliability, and connectivity. This led us to develop our Digital Health Store. Many medical device vendors also have cumbersome ordering processes. Impilo has stepped in to manage procurement and vendor relationships. Becoming a Durable Medical Equipment supplier was a natural transition to continue distributing quality devices with scale.

Impilo is the only dual 3PL and DME optimized for digital health programs. We provide connected devices and custom fulfillment, all in one back-end solution.
