Managers of electro-medical equipment and health facilities concern themselves with ensuring efficiency and availability, respecting the Maintenance Plans and reducing the extraordinary interventions. This activity is carried through with the purpose of reducing costs and maintaining of a high standard of service.
To this end, systems for the correct identification and traceability of equipment and their components and those for computerized recording of maintenance / calibration operations realized are particularly important.
Our Healthcare Solution, based on the use of robust electronic memories, realizes all this.
Smart Point® technology can be used to manage electro-medical equipment and typical hospital machineries, such as those distributing medical gas or those own by thermal power plants or refrigerators. Our solution is not limited to machineries management but it can be applied to the computerized patient identification process and related clinical data management.
Smart Point® technology represents an alternative system to the use of radio frequency technologies, especially in environments where it is not advisable to use the latter due to the problems of electromagnetic waves diffusion.
Regarding the maintenance process, the operator will have at his disposal the component identifier, its operating parameters, and the maintenance activities carried out with its related chronology. While in the process of patient identification and clinical data management, the healthcare provider will have quickly available the key patient identification data (both hospitalized or day-hospital for chronic illness) included base anamnesis and therapeutic pathway. All with the assurance of the data reliability and confidentiality. Basically, the technical or healthcare operator performs the planned check and transcribes the doctor’s visit report on the electronic label rather than on a paper card, thus starting the IT process of data processing.
The solution has the following benefits:
- Immediate availability of all information about patients, donors, machineries, systems;
- Availability of historical documentation for each patient, donor, instrument or implant;
- Confidentiality, thanks to the passwords on each page and the proprietary communication protocol;
- Continuous database updating;
- Computerized management of procedures;
- Overall, greater efficiency and security of the service while at the same time reducing operating costs.
