Real Time Location Systems provide value to a hospital in several use-cases:
Asset Management - Optimizing the deployment location of hospital equipment for most efficient operations, managing par levels for equipment to assure that there is always equipment where it is needed, and finding a specific asset when needed for maintenance or recall.
Loss Prevention - Alerting the appropriate staff when a piece of hospital equipment travels to the wrong floor, or out a door.
Equipment Right-Sizing - Studying the utilization of equipment before a capital purchase, to assure that scarce funds are not wasted on too great an order quantity.
Rental Management - Alerting the appropriate staff when a rented piece of equipment is nearing its return date, and avoiding excess rental charges.
AIS RealTime has Value Analysts on staff who can lead a hospital through a study of how RTLS use cases can bring value to a hospital. We engage with a hospital client prior to their decision on an RTLS implementation to quantify the expected value. We engage during the installation of a system to apply design rules based on our expertise, setting up the appropriate alerts and reports to maximize value. And we engage after the deployment, to report on value achieved through the RTLS system, and to suggest further optimization of the system.
Our goal is to help every customer achieve the best value possible from their RTLS system.
