The adoption of Indoor Positioning Systems (IPS) with Bluetooth LE tags applied to hospital assets allows to have a global view of the location of all equipment at any time and allows you to track a history of the locations. Why are these two functions important?
Hospital staff waste a considerable amount of time searching for medical equipment. Being able to know the position of assets in real time reduces search times to zero.
The loss of time is compounded by the costs associated with the underuse and / or loss of medical equipment in health facilities.
By adopting IPS solutions, the hospital’s Purchasing and Logistics Managers are able to monitor, and thus optimize, the utilization rate of the various devices (saving on new purchases) and to prevent the loss or theft of assets.
