Althea UK & Ireland and RFiD Discovery working in partnership to help hospitals deliver outstanding patient care
Althea UK & Ireland and RFiD Discovery are delighted to be co-exhibiting at EBME Expo 2022 to showcase how their unique partnership is helping hospitals deliver outstanding patient care.
RFiD Discovery, the UK’s leading location tracking specialist for healthcare, and Althea, the leading provider of integrated healthcare technology management, partnered a year ago to provide pioneering location tracking solutions to UK hospitals.
Since then, the companies have implemented location tracking solutions for 20,000 devices to improve compliance of scheduled maintenance and reduce the impact of non-serviced assets. The service also aims to help minimise over-stocking of equipment, reduce wasting clinical time looking for equipment and, above all, improve patient safety.
In the next few months, Althea will implement this service for 30,000 more devices, helping hospitals improve compliance and ensure equipment is maintained as scheduled.
Jason Long, Business Development Director from Althea, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer RFiD Discovery’s pioneering location tracking as a solution or as an added service to our existing and new clients. There are so many benefits to healthcare providers such as increasing efficiency, improving device utilisation, cutting costs by reducing the need to purchase new devices and reaching higher patient safety and compliance standards by ensuring all tagged medical devices are serviced and compliant to MHRA standards. Come and talk to us at EMBE Expo to find out more.”
Arron Duddin, Smart Solutions Director at RFiD Discovery, added: “It’s been great working in partnership with the fantastic team at Althea during the past 12 months. We look forward to working on new projects together in the coming year and beyond and to supporting even more hospitals in their efforts to deliver outstanding patient care.”
