Great benefits of real time asset tracking in hospitals

Real-time Asset management & facilities management

Hospital facilities management system with integrated Real-time asset management, enabling hospital repairs tracking and preventive maintenance. A real-time asset tracking system ensures location-wise tracking of oxygen cylinders, and syringe pumps will ensure that proper billing happens to inpatients account. 

  • Decreased hospital equipment downtime using facilities management system
  • Improved system reliability for reducing patient waiting times
  • Decreased cost of replacement of spares and consumables
  • Better inventory management accuracy
  • Detect anomaly of motors, pumps, compressors
  • Preventive maintenance for older technology hospital equipment

Long-term effects and cost comparisons usually favor hospital house keeping, preventive maintenance, over performing maintenance actions only when the system fails. We assist our customers in maintenance tracking using our beacon-enabled workflow management in housekeeping, repairs.

The hospital facilities management solution is bundled with Real-time asset tracking devices, gateway and monitoring dashboard software.

By implementing preventive maintenance programs, optimizing energy usage, and improving asset management practices, hospitals can minimize equipment breakdowns, energy wastage, and unnecessary expenses.

Well-maintained facilities and equipment play a crucial role in ensuring patient safety and the delivery of quality care. Facilities management helps identify and address potential hazards, ensures the proper functioning of medical equipment, and creates a safe and comfortable environment for patients, staff, and visitors. Ensuring optimal patient waiting times will help in reducing risks

Efficient facilities management practices streamline operations and enhance workflow in hospitals. By implementing effective maintenance schedules, optimizing space utilization, and coordinating services, hospitals can improve the efficiency of various departments and support smooth patient flow.

Regulatory Compliance: Healthcare facilities are subject to numerous regulations and standards related to safety, health, and environmental considerations. Facilities management ensures compliance with these regulations by implementing appropriate safety protocols, conducting regular inspections, and maintaining accurate documentation.

Facilities management plays a crucial role in promoting sustainability and reducing the environmental footprint of hospitals. By implementing energy-saving measures, waste management programs, and environmentally friendly house keeping practices, hospitals can contribute to a greener and more sustainable healthcare environment.

Well-maintained facilities create a positive working environment for hospital staff, leading to increased job satisfaction and productivity. Facilities management ensures that staff have access to clean, well-equipped spaces, reducing distractions and enabling them to focus on providing excellent patient care.

Facilities management includes planning and implementing emergency response protocols and maintaining critical infrastructure such as fire safety systems and backup power generators. This preparedness ensures that hospitals can effectively respond to emergencies and continue providing care during crisis situations.

Facilities management involves strategic planning for the lifecycle management of hospital assets. By implementing proper maintenance practices and asset tracking systems, hospitals can extend the lifespan of equipment, make informed replacement decisions, and optimize asset utilization.

Well-maintained facilities and a pleasant environment contribute to a positive patient experience. Patients perceive hospitals with well-managed facilities as more reliable and trustworthy, enhancing the hospital’s reputation and potentially attracting more patients.

What is preventive maintenance in healthcare? ? Regular work schedules of technical and housekeeping staff can be monitored on a regular basis to ensure they do schedule rounds as stipulated. Preventive maintenance is a schedule of planned maintenance actions for hospitals aimed at the prevention of breakdowns and failures. The primary goal of this maintenance is to reduce the failure of hospital equipment before it occurs. It is designed to preserve and enhance equipment reliability by replacing worn components before they fail.  Scheduled maintenance activities include equipment checks, partial or complete overhauls, repair at specified periods, oil changes, lubrication, and so on for maintenance of older technology devices. Enable work requests, equipment maintenance, purchase orders, meter readings, location of managers working, maintenance, and repair schedules.

In addition, workers can record equipment deterioration so they know to replace or repair worn parts before they cause a system failure. Technological advances in wireless asset monitoring solutions have enabled even more accurate and effective medical device maintenance. The ideal maintenance program would prevent all equipment failures before they occur. 

Hospital housekeeping tracking & asset management

Managing hospital equipment has become increasingly sophisticated, but hospital indoor positioning system tracking & monitoring tools have also gotten smarter. The evolution of smart sensors, asset management, anomaly detection, hospital MIS, inventory management, stock prediction analytics tools, the growth of connected objects, and a range of hospital productivity improvements now allow housekeeping, operations, and maintenance team members to identify and resolve issues, and repair them before they become problems. Predictive maintenance for newer high-tech devices is available in the market.

Monitoring the progress of everyday housekeeping, maintenance, and inspections

  • Know the movement of biomedical & maintenance staff
  • Understand time spent on maintenance in departments, wards
  • Easily track equipment that is frequently visited
  • Map maintenance plans with actual inspections done
  • Improve the productivity of the hospital maintenance team
  • Monitor indoor air quality and ventilation of closed areas
  • Remotely monitor the working condition of various equipment.
  • Laboratory Information Management system integration
  • Patient tracking systems for reducing waiting times.

By analyzing historical conditions and performance data, potential failures or machines experiencing anomalous behavior can be identified and fixed. This helps increase uptime and reduce maintenance costs for hospitals.  The hospital maintenance, housekeeping, and repair tracking solutions comprise wireless sensors, gateway, and dashboard software.

Value of tracking hospital repairs & maintenance with Real-time asset management

There are multiple misconceptions about PM. One such misconception is that PM is unduly costly in asset management for hospitals. This logic dictates that it would cost more for regularly scheduled downtime and maintenance than it would normally cost to operate equipment until repair is absolutely necessary. This may be true for some components; however, one should compare not only the costs but the long-term benefits and savings associated with maintenance. Without regular maintenance, for example, costs for lost production time from unscheduled equipment breakdown & repair will be incurred. Also, the maintenance will result in savings due to an increase in effective system service life. 

The healthcare sector is equipment intensive and most of the medical devices are critical. As in some cases human life is dependent on these fixed assets. It is important that assets are maintained and stay in working condition. Moreover, they must be available at the right time & place to ensure patient safety & reduce wait times. The system provides real time information and lets you know the location of each asset. In case of any breakdown occurs, a ticket is quickly raised, and fast actions are taken to resolve issues.
