Finding more than patients and staff. AMCS’s venture into asset tracking is a big deal on many levels. The degree of accuracy required for finding equipment depends on the customer, the device and the assigned urgency. Equipment can be located to within a meter radius or to within a 6 Meter radius in other zones depending on the level of accuracy required. Which avoid you having to complete a manual search.
This is another problem asset tracking can help to solve, which also will save money. We can develop reports to identify the utilization of equipment. When we see that a particular device is not in a patient care area for several days at a time, we can use that information to follow up and improve a process. Is it waiting for repair all this time? Or is it in storage when it could have been used? Do the nurses even know it’s available? From our research in Hospitals and Industry a considerable about of time is spent looking for equipment and the true utilisation is rarely fully understood. This system will provide a detailed report of where equipment is used and will help in the planning and budgeting of the healthcare facility.
The hospital can actively track everything from heart monitors to wheelchairs and beds. Anything that moves frequently or is of high value can be tracked. The value to the hospital can be tracked both in savings and business sense. This system can be used to track small, highly mobile or both equipment. This equipment can be expensive to buy, lease and essential to have when you need it. This tracking System will transform simple location data into process improvement analysis which will make your hospital or healthcare centre more efficient and provide cost savings into the future.
