Given the hospitalʼs labor savings, loss prevention, physician satisfaction and improved productivity, Mateka expects a return on investment within one year. “Time saved and increased productivity are significant advantages of this system. Since we implemented SynTrack for Healthcare and the RFID portals, no tagged devices have been lost in the trash. Eventually, we also expect to be able to reduce our equipment purchases through a combination of reduced loss and our utilization history reporting,” he said.
With the success of the system evident, IBSS and The Greenville Hospital System are now working together on expanding the solution to other areas of the campus to track additional critical care devices.
