As one of the most heavily regulated industries, healthcare requires a strict level of asset management to maintain regulatory compliance and support patient outcomes. Many hospital assets such as wheelchairs, diagnostic equipment and pumps need to be located quickly for vital patient care. Not to mention that they are often loaned from one facility to another. Metalcraft’s asset tracking technology allows the medical industry to easily gather real-time data for critical medical needs.
The benefits of hospital staff keeping tabs on where critical equipment is located at all times include:
- Tracking maintenance of life-sustaining machines
- Tracking asset location in real-time
- Recording calibration information easier
- Reducing unnecessary equipment purchases
- Providing a real-time account of safe handling
- Preventing theft and counterfeit of supplies
Diagnostic and scientific medical equipment are used in harsh conditions and pushed to their limits while having equally challenging regulations. And, medical staff need the certainty of having key equipment at their fingertips. RFID and barcode technologies provide the authentication you need for all your safety concerns—from accurate tracking and authentication of medication to improving accuracy of where equipment is located in real-time. Partnering with the deep expertise from Metalcraft will create products that assure patient safety. Now that’s ID Made Better®.
