Medical facilities are under constant pressure to handle increasing patient volumes while meeting higher expectations for quality care and carefully balancing operating budgets.
To meet these challenges, IoT-enabled asset tracking solutions deliver powerful benefits for better use of resources and time, while promoting substantial cost savings.
Average time that a hospital worker spends searching for assets
Average loss per item from stolen or lost mobile assets
Estimated amount of missing or misplaced hospital inventory yearly
A real-time location system (RTLS) solution is vital for tracking medical assets, which can help you improve operations, stay compliant, and reduce operating costs. Since security is integral for protecting sensitive patient records and hospital data, our solution circumvents the hospital’s corporate, on-premise Wi-Fi network - drastically reducing the risk of potential exposure to vulnerabilities.How it Works
With MachineQ for Indoor Asset Tracking, medical personnel benefit from streamlined workflows that save time, improve productivity, and empower them in their daily roles.
Easily track and locate equipment to streamline workflows, automate maintenance schedules, perform service, and enhance calibration processes.
Optimize the logistics and supply chain process with real-time inventory visibility and automate PAR level management.
Spend less time searching for supplies to focus on delivering quality, timely patient care with real-time equipment location data.
Reduce over purchasing and improve budgeting operations with up-to-the minute, easily obtainable data on medical equipment.
Maintain an accurate, holistic view of inventory for routine and emergency care—big or small, from low-to-high-value.
Understand how, when, and where equipment is utilized to facilitate timely routine servicing, calibration, and predictive maintenance.
Optimize sterile processing workflows - helping reduce risks of infection or cross-contamination while improving compliance, cost-efficiency, and inventory management.
Avoid overstock and risk of product expirations with more visibility into PAR levels, simplifying reordering and lowering costs.
Reduce rounding times for preventative maintenance and right-size inventory for better capital planning and informed purchasing.
Eliminate the need for staff to spend critical time away from patient care to locate medical equipment.
