Healthcare Logistics  – Summary

Hospitals all over the EU and indeed around the world have long since been faced with the challenge of knowing in real time where the hospitals key assets are at any given time. The loss or even temporarily misplacement of such of critical assets can have a huge impact on turnaroundRFID Hospital assets and onsite productivity. As an example, we are often presented with the same scenario where employees move an hospital asset to a new location or move the asset due to an immediate urgent requirement, this asset in turn get’s lost on maze until such time and the asset is returned to it’s correct location. The challenge now being faced by the hospital is how to locate these assets across such vast operational sites. This process can take time and resources resulting in a drop in staff utilization, all of which has a knock on effect across the hospitals campus.
