Real-Time Location

Hospital Client Seeks Real-Time Location System

It has been documented that in hospitals that implement real-time locating systems allow nursing and clinical staff to lower by at least one hour per shift the searching for equipment. In many facilities Biomedical Engineers can spend half their day locating equipment for preventative maintenance, cleaning and repair. The lack of equipment visibility increases wait times, can severely impact staff productivity, create increased costs by adding redundant equipment purchases, adding unnecessary rental equipment and impacting overall patient flow. These common consequences can be costly to a hospital, and impact safety and timely patient care.

Additionally helping hold resources accountable for their actions and providing both a transparent and consistent way to increase equipment visibility to all staff and improving patient flow.
