Delivering Enterprise Asset Intelligence for Healthcare
Most healthcare providers would agree that their operations could benefit from improved efficiency, especially in managing vast supplies of medical equipment.
Automated asset tracking helps to improve efficiency and save costs for hospitals, which are tasked with managing hundreds of pieces of equipment, files and other assets across large facilities.
See the location of items in real-time for visibility into workflow status and resource planning.
Reduce capital expenditures and rental costs through efficient use of equipment and ensure compliance with maintenance and regulated processes.
INVENTORY PROTECTION AGAINST EXPIRED AND RECALLED ITEMS
Supplies such as lab supplies, consumables, and medications are often misplaced, out of stock or expired because there are no definitive systems to monitor inventory changes.
High usage levels and access by multiple users who do not monitor stock levels lead to inaccurate inventories and unnecessary rush orders to meet patient needs.
Take a look at the pharmacy and the emergency room for daily examples of this type of problem.
ASSET CONDITIONS MONITORING
By collecting sensor telemetry data and using our advanced Condition Monitoring algorithms, are able to filter out non-vital data to accurately portray trend-line information, predict failure and provide alerts so that remedial actions can be scheduled before an equipment is about to stop functioning, thereby reducing downtime and avoiding lost capacity. Maintenance and replacements can be scheduled based on trendline and predictive analysis. The key to effective monitoring is not just collecting relevant data in real-time, but allowing you to act on this data immediately.
The Smartx Hub® Personnel Tracking System is a fully integrated personnel tracking solution that can monitor personnel in real-time. The system is powered by three key components:
- Personnel Location Software
- RFID Wearable Tags
- RFID Readers or Edge Gateways
These three components work together to locate personnel and can be customized to address the needs of any business environment.Best of all, staff tracking solutions are achieved via passive RFID and/or Beacons, so there's no interruption in staff routine.
When you know where your people, equipment, and patients are, you gain new visibility to hospital performance.
Reduce cost of RTI’s through more efficient inventory tracking.
The use of returnable transport items (pallets, roll cages, returnable plastic containers, tote boxes, ingredients bins, dollies, IBCs, etc) is an increasing phenomenon in the modern supply chain, with companies constantly seeking to reduce costs, increase handling efficiencies and improve environmental responsibility through less waste.
Increasingly stringent traceability regulation worldwide requires companies not only to provide a complete audit of product and ingredients movement in the supply chain but also compels them to track secondary packaging and materials handling equipment flows associated with product shipment. In addition, the supply chain suffers significant costs annually, associated with the loss of equipment/assets and their subsequent replacement.
SmartX Hub® offers an affordable and efficient way to get the greatest value from RTI inventories.
RFID tags on each individual unit make it possible to accurately and automatically track its movement, using fixed readers at strategic in-and-out portals at the distribution center or mobile devices (handheld, cellphones, tablets) readers for mobile read points at remote /customer facilities.
Hospitals that automatically track the movement and availability of mobile medical equipment with the RAIN RFID solution from Smartx can help staff locate ready-to-use devices faster, make better use of the existing asset, and reduce costly overstocking and process delays.
- Reduce capital expenses and other costs through better use of existing asset and improved workflow management
- Increase staff efficiency with automated work assignments and by making important assets available when and where needed
- Gain transparency and accountability with visibility into tasks, assignments, and status
- Improve patient care by freeing staff time and reducing the wait for equipment
WE’RE BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN DIGITAL AND PHYSICAL – AND THIS IS WHERE WE TALK ABOUT IT.
Asset Management and Inventory flyer
UNLIKE OTHER SYSTEMS, SMARTX HUB® IS HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE
"Because RFID, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 and GPS technologies read multiple tags at once without requiring a line of sight, customers are able to more quickly and accurately locate assets without scanning labels one-by-one. When tracking assets is easy to do, it gets done."
Item Intelligence implementations begin with item-level tagging and the incorporation of handheld and/or fixed RAIN RFID gateways or readers.
Each RAIN RFID tag contains a unique serial number that identifies the item, does not require line-of-sight reading, can be read simultaneously, and is
updatable in the field. The tag is encoded with a unique identifier that is tied to a database.
A line of sight is not required – tags can be read automatically, even through packaging materials and in transit, whenever moving items or people come within range of a reader. RFID systems greatly streamline inventory and asset tracking, virtually eliminating human error while providing instant, detailed records of the movement of assets.
