Running a Hospital
Providing brilliant care is both challenging and expensive
Hospitals are under increasing pressure to reduce costs while continuing to deliver quality patient care.
As a result, hospitals today are implementing new and better ways to streamline operations. Many hospitals rely on barcoding and other labour intensive processes to track and manage medical equipment and supplies, patient records, medications, and more.
But these manual processes waste staff time and divert attention from providing high-quality patient care. These methods are also prone to error and often lead to inaccurate measurements and flawed data, because they rely on overworked staff who must manage many other priorities.
Automate the management of equipment, files, and other assets. See the real-time location of items for visibility into workflow status and resource planning. Reduce capital expenditures and ensure compliance with maintenance and regulated processes.
Ensure your staff has the supplies they need, when and where they need them. Get accurate information about the location, availability and consumption of supplies. Manage inventory with lower cost through efficient utilization and expiration management.
Supply Chain Effectiveness
Automate product management from manufacturer to healthcare organization to point-of-care. Ensure visibility of data required for track-and-trace and unique device identification (UDI) and Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) compliance.
Patient Care & Experience
Gain visibility into patterns of movement through your facility. Automate workflow of patients and caregivers. Reduce wait times, improve process flow, support wayfinding and improve customer service to make the patient experience as positive as possible.
Food & Drug
A vital ingredient for improving product quality, safety and availability is having better, actionable data. When you can sense and respond to changes in production, storage and distribution operations, you can prevent the conditions that lead to downtime or losses. Receive alerts when storage conditions such as temperature and humidity, or dwell times are approaching unacceptable levels.
Improve patient safety
“Reduce misidentification issues and maintain trustworthy information”
“Enlarge with utilization of assets with real-time traceability”
RFID automatically tracks or identifies patients and personnel, pharmaceuticals, medical devices, instruments, blood bags or different kinds of samples and helps to prevent human errors and medical malpractice. With the help of RFID, electronic patient records can be automatically updated with the information on caregiver, patient and treatment. RFID can add value to medical devices and instruments by ensuring the correct function of the device, adjusting the settings or counting the times a specific part is used.
Furthermore, the utilization rate of instruments can be increased, when hospital inventories are better up to date. In addition to cost savings and improved efficiency, the implementation of RFID technology will result in higher employee and patient satisfaction and most importantly, improved patient safety.
