Increased inventory accuracy
Specialty areas can count on needed equipment stocks, such as IV equipment in emergency and ambulatory care or thermometers and blood pressure cuffs in admitting areas. Admitting and treatment staff know when beds, wheelchairs and other equipment are available, allowing for faster patient/room turnover and improved incremental revenue.
Increased staff productivity
Your staff spends less time taking inventory and tracking down missing or misplaced equipment, which means they have more time for patients.
Reduced capital and operational costs
The reduction in the loss of assets reduces the need to purchase and manage additional assets. Accurate inventory reduces the risk of out-of-stock situations and the need to rush-order supplies at premium pricing.
Enhanced patient care
With RFID, life-saving and critical care equipment can be located quickly, automated inventory updates help ensure medications and other supplies are available, and staff have more time to spend with patients – all of which contribute to enhanced patient care.
Increased accountability of media and data tape tracking safeguards sensitive data, and ensures backup and redundancy
Providers can easily monitor compliance with Joint Commission (JCAHO) standards, using data collected using RFID.
Improved equipment maintenance
Medical equipment can be easily located with RFID, helping ensure that critical and routine maintenance procedures are performed.
