Take Healthcare on the Go Safely with Medical Equipment Tracking

January 5, 2024

They say an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Thanks to health-screening equipment such as mammogram machines, ultrasound equipment and other devices, healthcare professionals are able to catch potentially serious issues quickly, which can result in better outcomes for their patients. In addition to being available in hospitals and doctors’ offices across the country, this highly sophisticated equipment can also be found on mobile screening vehicles that travel to underserved or rural areas.

For healthcare organizations, more preventive screenings mean healthier patients in the long run, but also can mean a greater need for screening equipment and other medical assets to be available and accessible to all patients.

Considering that 10 to 20% of a hospital’s mobile assets are lost or stolen during their useful life, it’s important to have a smart, easy way to keep track of your important and costly medical equipment all year long. It’s not just portable medical equipment at risk for loss or theft either; there are numerous accounts of hospital employees and other healthcare professionals, and even professional thieves, going to great lengths to steal all kinds of expensive equipment and resell them on the Internet for a profit.

Why medical equipment tracking matters

One of the best things about mobile medical equipment is that it can be, well, mobile. Healthcare organizations and outreach programs can offer mobile screening services, such as mammograms, to people who might not otherwise be able to be screened. Other mobile medical equipment, including sonogram machines and other imaging equipment, endoscopic devices, scanners and more. The portable nature of these assets helps make healthcare more accessible, but it can also increase the risk of them getting lost, stolen, or simply losing track of where they are.

Even if the equipment in question isn’t mobile, it’s still important to keep tabs on it to prevent theft or loss. This can be especially true for healthcare providers who practice in multiple locations. It can be difficult to keep track of which office houses which equipment. Using a GPS tracker for medical equipment, much as you would on a vehicle, can help your organization stay on top of your assets’ whereabouts, which can significantly help reduce loss and cut down on liability with leased equipment.

How a medical equipment tracking system can help you protect your investments

Whether they are used in a busy hospital setting, a pop-up clinic or a mobile healthcare van, health-screening equipment can sprout legs and walk away. Being unable to locate an important and costly piece of equipment when you need it can healthcare professionals something with even greater value than money—time. Thanks to GPS technology, healthcare professionals can know at a glance where their medical assets are without having to spend time tracking them down. In the world of healthcare, every second matters. Why not use available technology, such as a medical equipment tracking system, to stay organized and prepared for any scenario?
