Forum 3: Healthcare
Let's keep moving on!
Shrinkage of high-priced medical equipment, contaminated surgical instruments, incorrect medication, non-observance of maintenance intervals for life-supporting intensive care devices - horror scenarios in hospitals, practices or laboratories.
RFID & Wireless IoT technologies are used to ensure that this does not happen and that healthcare processes from laundry to instrument management function 100 percent.
The forum "Healthcare" will show which ways are efficient and successful.
Digitally documented processes
Sample identification and analysis assignment, temperature monitoring of sensitive drugs and blood products, preparation and sterilisation of devices and instruments - the range of error-prone processes in healthcare is wide.
Digital solutions, supported by process data from wireless IoT applications, create the required transparency, automatically document process steps and give alarm signals in case of faulty work steps.
Localisation of patients, employees and assets
The benefits of locating staff, patients and equipment at short notice in hospitals, laboratories and health facilities are complex. The tracking of medical devices, beds or wheelchairs ensures a fast provision, the documentation of condition and maintenance intervals and the reduction of stocks.
The localisation and clear identification of patients reduces the risk of confusion and increases the quality of treatment. Exact location of employees enables optimisation of schedules and spontaneously simplifies necessary work assignments.
Better processes despite cost reduction?
Wireless IoT technologies support automation in processes such as drug delivery, OR time management or asset localisation.
According to a McKinsey study, more than six billion euros can be saved in the German healthcare sector alone by automating work processes and mobile networking of nursing staff.
