What is Asset Tracking?
Asset tracking provides real-time location tracking of medical equipment. Hospital staff can view the location of available medical assets such as infusion pumps, beds, wheelchairs and monitors.
This creates value for hospitals by reducing the amount of time it takes for staff to access medical equipment in a busy hospital environment.
Asset management is also used to increase security and improve management of valuable medical assets.
Effective use of asset tracking enables the complete management of medical equipment, improving efficiency and driving decision-making processes that reduce capital expenditure.
