Concerns & Needs
Concern Statement:-“Healthcare spends billions on capital equipment such as medical devices,
facilities, and IT hardware. Yet much of that value trickles away when administrators lack a
total understanding of what they own and where they lying, leading to lost inventory, under
capacity utilization and delay in emergency responses.”
Problems:- Risk of life, Revenue loss, value loss in service & response, audit mis-matches, under
utilization of asset, Brand dilution of the enterprise, maintenance of Assets
Need:- Enterprise Asset Management integrates techniques for holistic control and
optimization throughout those assets' varying lifecycles. It brings together planning,
acquisition, commissioning, tracking, assignment, movement, operations and eventual

Automatic Tracking & Movement Monitoring
With RFID technology, hospitals can effectively track medical carts, crash carts and other
assets that can be hoarded or misplaced. Instead of 3-5 personnel scurrying around their
floor looking for vital assets they are able to locate the cart and get back to caring for
Security and Access control
RFID technology takes the guess work out of locating important and not so important assets.
Tracking tags can be added to inventory that inform personnel of items being taken off of
hospital property and track assets as they move throughout the facility; providing real-time
solutions to stagnant and moving inventory.
Audits, Inventory accounting and maintenance
Furthermore, tagging and tracking informs hospitals of what they have—don’t have—and
what they need to replace. Inventory is accounted for and frivolous spending on assets that
are already there, but are just misplaced, stops.
