Every day thousands of man hours are lost in hospitals by staff searching for equipment. In addition, recent research suggests that 10 – 20% of a hospital’s mobile assets are lost or stolen every year. Against a background of nursing shortages and budgetary restrictions, this is a very serious issue faced by healthcare institutions.
Bluetooth is the next generation of asset tracking technology. Medstrom offer this unique and innovative service which uses a wireless non-contact system with the aim to improve automatic identification and tracking of hospital assets.
Bluetooth technology provides customers with an accurate asset tracking tool that helps to optimise product usage and healthcare provision, as well as ensuring staff and patient safety.
Medstrom are the first service provider in this sector to provide a fully comprehensive Bluetooth solution to help customers gain full visibility of their assets within one consolidated database. This improves overall hospital visibility, whilst also enabling better decision making across all customer sites.
How does it work?
Using a sophisticated range of fixed and mobile tags, it is possible to easily and automatically track hospital assets. By uploading schematic layouts of a hospital, the unique asset tracking tool will be able to identify and locate beds, medical equipment and people to specific areas within the hospital. Tag detection allows for exact location details to be highlighted, breaking down the asset’s movement to the correct floor, room and even precise position within that room.
All assets can be identified separately by a customisable photo or icon, and if a filtered view is required, assets can be hidden from sight.
Customisable rules allow for improved system sophistication, escalating the ability to track assets and identify status in relation to their location. By adding rules various alerting options can be triggered by location, tag and movement. A status view of all assets is available to monitor this accurately.
