The recent Webinar Wednesday presentation “A Powerful Duo: Why RTLS Needs Both Accuracy and Confidence to Power Automation” was sponsored by Cognosos and eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
In this 60-minute webinar, Cognosos’ Chief Product Officer Adrian Jennings examined the importance of RTLS “confidence” as it relates to workflow automation in health care. This informative session covered the wide-ranging impact that both low and high confidence levels can have on mobile asset management practices. He also provided guidance for teams on how high-confidence location data can empower better purchasing decisions and automate tedious manual processes.
The webinar drew HTM professionals seeking knowledge and CE credit. Many submitted questions during a Q&A session with the presenter. One question was, “What are the metrics that can predict how much a typical hospital can save by reducing the number of assets?”
Jennings provided a thoughtful answer.
“There’s a couple of ways to go on to that. One is that there is certain industry data that can show that on a general level,” he explained. “So, there’s certainly industry data and reports that show what typical utilization rate is across hospitals. And there’s plenty of, you know, places that have used these systems that can an talk about what kind of utilization improvements you can make. And those two numbers can give you an idea of what the ballpark figure is for saving based on any given hospital size.”
He said there was another way to answer that question and provided more information in the Q&A session which is available for free on-demand viewing as part of the webinar at WebinarWednesday.live.
Attendees provided feedback regarding the webinar via a survey that included the question, “How will today’s webinar help you improve in your role?”
“It helps bring down the time to locate devices due for maintenance,” Biomed Victor Pablico said.
“I am trying to gather information to setup an RTLS system at our site. This was very helpful,” Chief Biomedical Engineering Kevin Hutcherson said.
