Power Mobile Medical Equipment Management with equipREADY
Manage, secure and get complete visibility into your mobile medical devices with equipREADY, our equipment distribution program. EquipREADY addresses mobile medical device availability, streamlines distribution and staff requests, and ensures Periodic Automatic Replenishment (PAR) levels. Unlike other equipment distribution programs, equipREADY includes a disinfection component following OEM specifications and the guidelines approved by infection control to ensure equipment is always reliably clean.
Healthcare Technology Integration
EquipREADY integrates with your existing RFID or RTLS framework but is not dependent on RFID or RTLS technology. If you choose to implement RFID or RTLS infrastructure, we can help expand your existing platform or support you through our existing partnerships with industry-leading RFID and RTLS network providers to develop infrastructure.
Clinician and Patient Satisfaction
EquipREADY can increase nurse job satisfaction by increasing equipment availability. When nurses and other clinical staff don’t have to hunt or hoard equipment, they have the time and tools to provide quality patient care, and patients experience shorter wait times. Everyone wins.
Patient Safety and Infection Control
Mobile medical equipment poses a unique infection control challenge; tracking mobile medical equipment with equipREADY reduces infection spread and ensures a safe environment. We clean and disinfect medical equipment according to OEM specifications and infection control guidelines, so high-touch equipment is safe before anyone uses it again.
23% Reduction in HAI Rates After one year of using equipREADY’s equipment tracking, and conducting and verifying disinfection protocols before returning equipment to use.
