The anatomy of a perfect organisation
Hospitals should be able to focus on what society needs from them – the best possible patient care. However, some factors make this role incredibly difficult. Technical equipment disappears or is carelessly put down and forgotten. This necessitates procurement of reserves, which swallows up funds needed elsewhere. Furthermore, administration and the legally prescribed documentation of equipment takes up disproportionate amounts of time and staff resources.
RFID-monitored equipment stocks optimise hospital management. Capital commitment is kept at a minimum because you no longer need equipment stores. Instead, the entire hospital works as a kind of flexible store. Unused equipment can be stored, and reserves decreased. You get detailed movement profiles for all components. Incoming and outgoing goods are recorded at critical points, so you always know their most recent location. Weak spots in your process are quickly highlighted and you have the chance to respond to them. Even assignment of individual pieces of equipment to patients is possible, quickly and easily. What about documentation as required by the law on medical devices? It is created for all equipment automatically and in real-time.
