The Importance of Tracking Assets in Hospitals

In the fast-paced environment of healthcare, efficient asset management is crucial. Location-based Asset Management solutions combine wireless asset tags and an enterprise RTLS platform to continuously monitor and proactively manage mobile assets across the enterprise.

Challenge

Are you ready for a better way to find and maintain mobile assets? Hospitals often face numerous challenges such as hundreds of hours spent searching for equipment, high-value assets being lost, stolen, or misplaced, poor utilization, unnecessary rentals and purchases, and delays as caregivers wait for the equipment that patients need.

Manual asset management costs hospitals time and money. It can affect patient care and impact staff morale too. Hospitals need an automated, facility-wide solution to transform mobile asset management.

Solution

Make it easy for caregivers to find what they need

Penguin’s Asset Management solution automates manual processes for managing capital and rental equipment—so staff can easily see the location and status of assets in real time. After being secured to assets, tags communicate wirelessly with our RTLS platform for automatic logging and monitoring of location and status.

Real-time alerts provide notifications for any status or location change, such as IV pump replenishment requirements, shrinkage alerts, or maintenance needs. Organizations can then transform asset data into powerful reporting to yield a better understanding of inventory levels, PAR Level performance, and asset utilization.
