Hospital Asset Tracking
A healthcare organization cannot afford to not track its assets. With some 15 percent of hospital equipment stolen annually, and a significant amount of equipment not being properly maintained, Vizbee's RFID asset tags offer a compelling solution to real-time hospital asset tracking, risk-free mobility of equipment and avoidance of wasteful procurement, through the use of RFID tags and readers that constitute no risk whatsoever to people or equipment.
How Vizbee's RFID hospital asset tracking system can help your organization
Asset tracking: Vizbee's RFID hospital asset tracking system can ensure that only an authorized person can use or move any given piece of equipment. It can guarantee the correct quantities of a certain apparatus in a designated zone, thus enabling their correct distribution throughout the institution. Moreover, it enables the immediate and accurate location of any item bearing a Vizbee RFID hospital asset tracking tag, and can indicate whether the item is in use or available to be taken.
Inventory and maintenance: With Vizbee's RFID hospital asset tracking system, administrators can have an accurate and comprehensive picture of the total amount of the organization’s inventory, including expiry dates and amount of usage. Vizbee's system can also be programmed to monitor the maintenance levels of equipment, providing alerts when repairs or checks are due.
Critical equipment: The presence of essential items – such as resuscitation devices in every defined zone– can be ensured by using Vizbee's RFID hospital asset tracking system, which will raise an alert in the case of a shortage.
Access and validating authorization: Vizbee's system can prevent unauthorized people's access to certain apparatuses or medication, and condition the activation of sensitive equipment with the proximity of a pertinent hospital asset tracking tag borne by a sanctioned employee.
Environment control: Vizbee's tags can provide real-time data on parameters such as temperature and moisture levels, providing alerts in the case of inappropriate conditions that could damage equipment and medications.
Increasing efficiency: Beyond safeguarding and monitoring equipment or medication, Vizbee's RFID hospital asset tracking system is designed to provide healthcare organizations with the means to keep at a minimum the human-error factor when dealing with small and sensitive specimens or documents. By applying the tags to outgoing blood tests, for example, a hospital will ensure that it will receive them back in due time, or be alerted if they are delayed or gone awry. Sensitive documents bearing crucial information can also be secured with tags, enabling a constant monitoring of their location and environmental conditions and their swift retrieval.
Swift and powerful parameterization tools at competitive prices
Until now, Hospital RFID technology required significant software specific developments and deployment, at a prohibitive cost for healthcare organizations. These solutions were also hard to maintain over the years as the entire maintenance cost was borne by each single customer; consequently these projects tended to become rapidly obsolete.
Whilst the success of any healthcare RFID solution depends critically on the freedom to select for each project the most suited hardware, the hardware vendors’ healthcare software packages are limited to their own hardware. Vizbee Healthcare™ closes this major gap. It includes a powerful parameterization tool, enabling the implementation of an RFID hospital asset tracking project in days to weeks only, without any risky specific developments. Being an end-to-end RFID hospital asset tracking software package and at the same time open to any RFID hardware, Vizbee Healthcare significantly reduces the total cost of RFID asset tracking project implementations, without compromising on the RFID hardware selection and without taking any risk.
Vizbee Healthcare ™ Hospital Asset Management
Vizbee Healthcare™ Hospital Asset Management enables better management of costly resources via a single, unified interface, and integrates completely with legacy IT systems. Its unique Graphical User interface is designed, so that a non educated operator can use the system after less than 30 minutes of training. This Graphical interface is customized by each department and end user in order to best meet their habits and requirements.
Combining a robust infrastructure with advanced dedicated application
In order to offer a solid and advanced system, Vizbee combines the robust Vizbee Core with a dedicated RFID Healthcare Package.
The Vizbee Core provides services such as communicating with the RFID tags, RFID reader, database management, 3rd party integration, user permission and more. This warrants for a robust performing infrastructure.
The Vizbee Asset Management core is highly scalable. It allows gradual implementation from a small partial project and up to large multi-site installations, in order to avoid the risk implicitly involved in big-bang operations.
Vizbee Core is an open system with exhaustive APIs to facilitate its integration with other systems in the organization in order to produce the overall the required processes.
A new approach to asset management projects, Vizbee RFID Asset Management dramatically reduces the level of risk and costs involved in RFID applications implementation projects, by giving an end-to-end solution.
All that is needed now for a successful RFID hospital asset tracking project is to select the best suited hardware and implement Vizbee Healthcare™ in days or weeks by parameter settings only.
