Get better control of your hospital asset lifecycles: from inventory management to records

Never before has the global healthcare system has been put under such huge strain as during a pandemic. With the quick dwindling of resources, hospitals were fighting for critical medical supplies. In the healthcare industry, stakes are alwayshigher and the ripple effect directly impacts patients’ care, clinicians, and their procedures. But, can weovercomethese unprecedented crises in the healthcare industry with effective asset management and resource utilization? The answer is YES! To improve the quality, safety andefficiency of healthcare sector, Eagle-I has introduced IoT based hospital asset management solutionpivoted onReal-Time Location System (RTLS).

What is hospital asset management?

Hospital asset management consists of four pillars:optimal assettraceability, reliability, availability and performance. It revolves around managing and maintaining a hospital’s machinery, equipment, and physical assets inthe most cost-effective and efficient approach. Eagle-I Hospital Asset Management system offers end to end visibility to the healthcare-specific equipment(such as anaesthesia machine, EKG Machines, hoists, syringe drivers, beds, wheelchairs), physical infrastructures (such as heating, air conditioning, refrigeration, condensers, generators, compressors, and other systems within a building), linens and uniforms.
With the hospital asset management, assets can be classified, maintenance schedule can be developed and performance of the assets can be tracked.Inventory tracking system automate supply chain processes while temperature and humidity monitoring ensure the right storage condition of pharmaceutical products and equipments. Implementing and managing an efficient Periodic Asset Replenishment (PAR) level system can be immensely difficult for a hospital.
The PAR level management can be initiated by monitoring the current flow of equipment. The best approach to accomplish this is to place RTLS exciters in specific zones. RTLS exciters provide room-specificity in which the RTLS platform can accurately track how many tagged assets are accessible per floor and if assets are ready to be cleaned.Employescan later change the PAR level information in the system as needed.
Besides this, Eagle-I provides the graphical location data of medical instrument at the disposalwhich allows healthcare staffto promptly move tools and equipment as and when needed.Meanwhile, the utilization forecasting, identifies the assetswhich areunder-utilized/dormant for a long-timeempowers hospital administrators to make smart purchasing decisions to reduce redundant orders andallowing financial resources to be allocated to high-demand critical equipment.
Eagle-I hospital asset management provides a summary as well as text searches and filtering depending on multiple parameters such as IDs, classification, make/model, owning facility, stay duration, acquisition method, owning department, and Service Request data. It is easier to design procedures, keep track of inventory, shorten search times, prevent bottlenecks, and improve workflows when you have complete insights about where assets have been in the past and how they moved across the facility.
