Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise RTLS software helping hospitals improve patient satisfaction and operational performance while supporting multiple RFID and RTLS technologies, will present the use of Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) to improve operational efficiency in healthcare during the 2012 Association for the Advancement of Medical Instrumentation (AAMI) Conference and Expo in Charlotte, North Carolina, June 2-4, 2012.
By visiting Intelligent InSites’ booth #921, healthcare professionals will have an opportunity to see first-hand how Intelligent InSites’ solutions can provide real-world ROI, including reducing equipment procurement, cutting rental expenses, and increasing the time that caregivers can spend at the patient’s bedside.
“Effectively and efficiently managing the use of medical equipment in a hospital can be challenging,” said Marcus Ruark, Vice President at Intelligent InSites. “However, with the real-time information provided by today’s RTLS technologies, combined with improved processes that leverage this real-time information, hospitals can achieve and maintain efficient equipment management results.”
Benefits include substantial and recurring hard-dollar cost savings in two primary areas:
• Reduction in Equipment Purchases and Maintenance – by understanding actual utilization rates of equipment and by improving equipment workflows with real-time information, optimal equipment inventory levels can be achieved and maintained, reducing equipment-related costs such as procurement expenses, replacement expenses, equipment repairs, and ongoing preventative maintenance expenses.
• Reduction in Rentals – by implementing location-enabled rental management processes, the process of making rental requests and rental pick-ups can be optimized to eliminate unnecessary rental expenses. The status information of the rental equipment allows hospitals to pay only for the rental equipment that is actually being used.
In addition to the hard-dollar cost savings, significant productivity enhancements are gained by allowing care givers, biomedical engineers, transporters, and other staff the ability to instantly track the location and the status of any monitored piece of equipment via a browser on any computer or any handheld device, such as iPhone or iPad.
