Medical equipment and devices are shipped between manufacturer and final usage point. Items like pacemakers, hip and knee prosthetics, and stents are produced and transported to hospitals, surgical facilities, and doctors’ offices across the country, necessitating medical asset management.
Medical Asset Tracking
Medical supplies often involve numerous components, all of which require sterile environments and FDA regulation compliance. Varying transport processes to hospital wings and surgery rooms as well as multiple sterilization phases require check-in, check-out, and reliable tracking. Additionally, cases often need to be cleaned and returned to the supplier, requiring accurate chain of custody reporting and further government compliance for certified reuse.

Healthcare and pharmaceutical industries are under increasing pressure to improve patient outcome while reducing costs. Regulations such as the Affordable Care Act (ACA), HIPAA and HITECH are requiring healthcare organizations to implement comprehensive and efficient systems to manage patient information. Increasingly larger volumes of records are being generated which need to be accessed quickly while having proper privacy and other regulatory controls in place.
