Managing an effective workflow reduces rental expenses and optimizes equipment utilization. A critical component of an effective workflow is asset tracking and management. When staff members are under pressure, they do not have time to search for medical equipment such as IV pumps and patient monitoring devices. 

With an asset tracking and management system in place, staff can identify the exact location and condition of much needed critical resources. Convergint offers best-in-class solutions for asset utilization with state of the art infrastructure and software.

Top Reasons for Asset Tracking

  • Access real-time equipment status e.g. availability, location, clean/dirty.

  • Enable and create efficient work processes that are measurable and repeatable.

  • Reduce interruptions in patient care; drive satisfaction and improve throughput.

  • Save on replacement costs for lost or stolen equipment by providing visibility on location.

  • Maintain, repair, recall, and inventory equipment efficiently.

  • Spend less money replacing lost or stolen equipment.

  • Enable staff to view real-time location of medical equipment on their workstation, tablet or smartphone while on-the-go.

  • Find equipment needed in real-time.

  • Understand actual utilization rates of your resources.

  • Maintain efficient PAR level management.

With an RTLS management system, asset tags are placed on mobile medical equipment and software is custom configured for specific facility needs. These asset tags seamlessly communicate with existing systems, providing key data regarding the exact location and condition of equipment in real time. When seconds count, caregivers must be able to access critical equipment quickly. Enabling and creating work processes that are measurable and repeatable accelerates workflows, resulting in better overall patient care and patient satisfaction.

Benefits of an Asset Tracking System

  • Longevity — Custom design an infrastructure that can grow with a facility. It can handle moves, adds and changes while providing a wide range of use cases.

  • Accuracy — Asset visibility can be customized to room, bay and even chair level location accuracy. This level of accuracy supports PAR-level management of mobile medical equipment.

  • Interoperability — A system that easily integrates with computerized maintenance management systems (CMMS) is essential. An open platform means seamless integration with current and future clinical applications and Electronic Health Record Systems (EHR).

  • Reliability — Critical location, condition and status updates must be delivered accurately and automatically as needed. Systems can also be built at the enterprise level for insight into all facilities asset tracking and management.
