Tifton, Ga.-based Tift Regional Medical Center has implemented AeroScout’s RTLS-based temperature monitoring and asset tracking and management solution.
With the AeroScout solution, Tift is leveraging its existing wireless infrastructure to track and manage critical medical equipment and wirelessly monitor temperatures in its refrigerators and freezers.
The staff at Tift implemented AeroScout’s asset tracking and management solution to locate critical equipment, such as wheelchairs, stretchers and infusion pumps, throughout the facility.
Caregivers no longer have to manually search the hospital for available equipment, instead they are able to spend time attending to patients and have the proper items when and where they need them.
Using AeroScout’s temperature monitoring solution, Tift automates monitoring of refrigerators and freezers, which contain medications and other critical items. Wireless tags measure temperatures on a defined time interval and transmit the data to AeroScout’s MobileView software. If a temperature reading becomes unsafe, automated alerts are sent to the appropriate staff members.
Additionally, AeroScout is helping the medical center minimize spoilage of emergency medications and other medical supplies on crash carts. Reports show the expiration date of time-sensitive supplies, ensuring that items are either used or are taken out of rotation before they expire.
