Improve Efficiency in Your Hospital with Hospital Asset Management Solutions
Hospital environments are always busy, with a large number of collaborators handling multiple assets (staff, utilities, patients, clinical equipment). This often leaves room for errors to creep in: assets are misplaced, rooms are wrongly assigned, hygiene isn’t maintained, etc. With an asset management solution, you can get near-real-time updates on the functioning of all your hospital assets, which helps you better track and manage them.
Hospitals are an intricate network of departments, rooms, hallways, machines, tools and staff. Managing each of these ‘assets’ is imperative to efficient operations. That’s where asset management systems come in:
5 Reasons to Get an Asset Management Solution for Hospitals
To reduce inefficiency and errors resulting from manual data management systems, it’s a wise practice to implement an asset management system for your hospital. Here are some of the reasons for getting an asset management solution.
Hospitals are a busy place, with patients and staff moving around constantly. It can be difficult to maintain equipment schedules, sterilization schedules, and patient records. A digital data system can address this problem. Connecting your medical equipment to Pycube’s asset management system allows you to receive constant updates and gain near-real-time information on whether an asset is out of use, sterilized, or available.
Improved Quality of Care
Hospital reputation, like many other industries, depends on feedback. The biggest complaint received by hospitals from patients is in regard to wait time. It is quite common in busy hospitals that the time a patient spends inside exceeds the expected time. An IoT-enabled system can give you live information on the availability of rooms and equipment. Also, Pycube’s high-end, intelligent asset management solution can predict usage trends and anticipate asset needs accordingly, so that extra rooms and appropriate equipment is available at peak hours, ensuring the time a patient spends inside the hospital is optimized with minimal wait time.
A hospital is a very sensitive place since a lot of assets, especially perishables like blood, need to be placed in rooms maintained at a certain temperature and humidity. Even pharmaceuticals, if not stored at the right temperature, can expire. With a data management system, you can log and track the environmental specifications and make sure that all the medicines are in their place. These systems can also send you alerts when a certain room is scheduled for maintenance, thus allowing the maximum usage of medical assets.
Integration with Other Healthcare Systems
Pycube’s intelligent asset management solution can seamlessly integrate with your other IT and operational systems to give you maximum efficiency when it comes to asset management. It automatically collects data from CMS, ERP, and mobile communications, and processes all the collected data to give the hospital staff a bird’s eye view of how all the assets and equipment are functioning.
Better Asset Utilization
When you have an accurate record of the inventory of all your equipment, including when something needs servicing and when it needs to be replaced, it becomes easier to manage and utilize all the hospital assets to provide better healthcare to your patients.
Hospitals see continuous traffic, at all times and hours of a day. Relying on manual management of assets in such a busy environment can cause inefficiency and decrease the quality of healthcare. Installing Pycube’s asset management solution for hospitals can get your staff near-real-time updates on all of your hospital data and improve the efficiency of the hospital staff by keeping them informed of their environment at all times.
