Impinj and Health ForumWATCH NOW
Event Date: Wednesday, Nov. 29, 2017, 1 - 2 p.m. Eastern (noon - 1 p.m. Central)
For many health care organizations, managing and locating assets is a manual process that is inefficient and costly, and negatively impacts patient care. The implications of these inefficiencies include overspending on equipment, staff frustration and even noncompliance with regulations. By automating these processes and creating visibility into asset location and availability, hospitals can optimize workflows, improve patient care and save money.
In hospitals items get misplaced, they undergo maintenance and clinical departments often squirrel them away due to concerns about availability. Health care providers do not need more equipment. They need a way to make existing equipment work harder.
Suppose there was a system that could 1) locate the position of every piece of equipment, 2) identify whether it needs routine preventive maintenance or sterilization, and 3) deliver it to the next patient on time. The system you envision exists. Hospital asset management enabled by RAIN RFID ensures that each item is professionally cleaned, well-maintained and readily available when and where it’s needed most.
What You Will Learn
- The cost of inefficiency in asset management
- How RAIN RFID can be used to make your process and your assets visible to staff
- Real-life examples of hospitals using RFID technology to improve operational efficiency, patient care and bottom line
- The financial impact of RAIN RFID and the ROI of improving your operations
