We integrate the Real Time Localisation service within the healthcare’s application landscape to maintain simplicity and (data)consistency. We integrate with multiple ECD/EPD and with TOPdesk which is in many cases the primary source of asset management.
By integrating Real Time Localisation services based on Blyott with TOPdesk’s Asset Management module, the exact location of the asset is available within TOPdesk without the need to consult a separate system. The location is updated every time an asset moves (triggered) or periodically refreshed to guarantee the asset is still available. In addition the registration process for a new asset is modified in such a way that with a single click by an inexperienced user a BLE tag is associated with that asset and tracking starts. Once as asset is found, the user can scan the QR code on the tag and valuable information regarding that asset such as last maintenance date or a help video instruction is displayed.
How does it work?
The solution consists of a continuous running process that whenever the location of an asset (provided it has a BLE tag attached) changes, the service updates TOPdesk’s asset management module for that asset with the correct location.The location consist usually of a building + room number to make them unique and relevant to the healthcare processional.
Reporting and filtering capabilities within TOPdesk can be used to see what items are no longer available (lost, theft or discarded as broken or old), which assets are at which location and which assets have not been used within a given period. The registration process for a new asset adds a small extra step to scan the QR code on the BLE tag that is attached to the asset and then associates the BLE tag with the asset. There is no other admin work required to start tracking the asset.
When a health care professional has found an asset but wants to know if that asset has been maintained correctly, he/she can scan the QR code and the last maintenance date is retrieved from TOPdesk. This can be done for the last maintenance date but for any information stored in TOPdesk that is relevant tot display (weight class, instruction for use, dimensions).
