GE Healthcare and AeroScout announced that they have integrated GE’s AssetPlus application with AeroScout’s Wi-Fi RFID solution targeted for European markets.
The combined solution adds real-time asset location information to GE’s maintenance and facility management software and helps streamline key business processes to further improve asset utilization. The integration enables hospitals to improve the management and maintenance of medical equipment, increase patient safety and help control costs.
Hospices Civils de Lyon in France is a joint customer of GE Healthcare and AeroScout and has requested the new integrated system for the management, location and maintenance information needed for their medical equipment. With it Hospices Civils will be able to quickly locate its mobile assets and know where these items are so that they can be used, cleaned and repair efficiently.
In addition, the asset management database from AssetPlus provides updated equipment information, such as hospital asset and serial numbers, to AeroScout to ensure that both systems make it easy to locate equipment using a common organization. In the event of a safety recall, clinical engineers are able to quickly locate and recover affected equipment.
