Guest View: Keeping assets in check in healthcare

Eric Lim | Aug. 16, 2013
It is imperative for healthcare institutions to keep track of their mobile assets be it mission-critical equipment or patient care devices.

Mobility delivers a major increase in productivity through the complete automation of asset management and also improves the quality and effectiveness of the asset maintenance function by enabling timely maintenance of equipment. This reduces the chances of medical devices being out of service, and ensures their optimum use for delivering quality healthcare.

Clinical time with patients is also a crucial resource for healthcare staff and caregivers. To patients, the time and attention they receive is what determines their experience - and having healthcare professionals spend more time with them will definitely increase satisfaction with their care. Using asset tracking solutions for asset management gives healthcare staff more time and resources to devote to patients, improving patient care as well as the patient experience.

Asset tracking solutions will continue to stay relevant to hospitals and healthcare institutions. An automated tracking system - one that is flexible and yet scalable enough to grow as needs change is essential for healthcare providers in helping them to improve processes and optimise operational efficiency to achieve better patient care.
