The product implementation took place during the construction phase of the hospital. Labor intensive asset operations should be streamlined from the beginning. The main goal is to increase operating room utilization and asset efficiency.
Hospital architecture was analyzed, and hardware installation locations were determined to provide maximum coverage with minimum hardware products. Hospital assets (infusion pumps, wheelchairs, beds, pyrometers, etc.) were analyzed to determine what type of tag should be used and which part of the assets the tag should be placed on.
- Shorten asset count time
- Receive up-to-date and accurate asset inventory list
- Prevent asset theft and loss
Solution of the Ankara City Hospital
Asset Inventory Management and Asset Safety
All non-mobile assets are tagged with UHF RFID passive asset tags for asset counting without requiring a direct line of sight. All critical assets that are mobile and valuable are tagged with active LF RFID asset tags to track the assets with real-time locations across the hospital. RFID locators are placed on the hospitals' various services and exit doors so that asset movements across could be detected instantly.
The locator sends the encrypted location information from the respective IoT sensor to an RFID reader. The locator prevents unauthorized access to the information which is relayed to the centrally managed middleware software.
