ThingMagic,JADAK

 

格林维尔医院系统大学医学中心(Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center)横跨5个医院设施,共有1110个床位和32间手术室,占地9万平方英尺,为南卡罗来纳州的市民提供服务。在该医院的7,500名员工中,约有1,000名医生。每年,这些医生执行超过33,000次住院和门诊手术大约5200万美元的费用,约占整个系统总费用的一半。

 

在这种规模下,昂贵的手术器械(探针)和其他设备错位或丢失的情况并不少见,因此格林维尔医院的材料服务小组力求最大限度地减少资产损失并减少定位OR材料的时间。虽然有无线网络,但材料服务执行总监John Mateka认为它不足以满足医院的所有资产跟踪需求,因此他和他的员工开始研究集成的Wi-Fi,UHF RFID,条形码和移动计算解决方案。

 

Mateka和他的团队咨询了几个IT集成供应商,最终选择并开始与位于南卡罗来纳州哥伦比亚市的集成业务系统和服务公司(IBSS)合作。为了提供解决方案的UHF RFID组件,IBSS求助于Jamison Door的工业门户部门,该公司通过与领先的RFID技术和解决方案公司ThingMagic的合作,该公司非常熟悉RFID资产跟踪和损失预防解决方案。

 

“节省时间和提高生产率是该系统的重要优势。因为我们实施了医疗保健的SynTrack和RFID门户网站同步,没有标签设备丢失......”

- John Mateka,格林维尔医院系统大学医疗中心材料服务执行主任

 

解决方案 

IBSS与Jamison Door合作,设计了一个重型RFID门户,用于OR亚麻车出口到洗衣房和净化室。出口门户包括ThingMagic Mercury6 RFID读取器和用于读取标记设备的天线,例如35,000美元至50,000美元的手术器械(探头),由于其体积小巧,可能会丢失在笨重的亚麻布和擦洗衣物中或垃圾。现在,当标记项目 - 例如“节省时间和提高生产力”是该系统的显着优势时。自从我们实施SynTrack for Healthcare和RFID门户网站以来,没有任何标记设备丢失......”

RFID资产跟踪,Astra

 

此外,格林维尔医院正在整个主要设施部署ThingMagic Astra UHF RFID阅读器,利用IBSS SynTrack医疗保健解决方案的RTLS和UHF RFID组合功能,跟踪近5,000件移动医疗设备(例如输液泵)。RFID门户,Astra读卡器和RTLS跟踪技术通过SynTrack应用程序集成,使Greenville的员工不仅能够知道标记设备的位置,而且具有同等重要性,状态,使用效率和使用历史。

 

SynTrack系统为格林维尔员工提供了掌上电脑和应用软件,可以定位和映射任何类型的标记资产,然后通过RTLS技术和ThingMagic Astra读卡器进行跟踪。通过位置和利用率信息的这种组合,系统生成详细说明资产使用和历史的定制报告。Greenville系统还为医院管理提供与用于提供与标记资产相关的医疗服务的流程和资源相关的效率报告。

 

“我们预算有限,我们想要利用现有的思科无线网络,我们不想被任何可能过时的东西锁定,”Mateka说。“现在系统已经到位,授权的医院工作人员可以通过网络浏览器或移动计算设备访问SynTrack应用程序,并找到任何类型的标记设备。RTLS技术和/或Jamison Door出口门户随时跟踪OR中的所有内容通过我们的802.11b无线网络转发的信息。用户可以选择找到的部分或全部项目,然后在显示地图上查看包含位置,对象描述和照片的项目。”

 

IBSS首席执行官乔治·门登霍尔博士说:“OR包装盒必须无菌且随时可用,SynTrack为员工提供所有推车的可见性,包括状态,位置和案例分配。”“经过授权的医院人员还可以通过受污染的推车存放,去污和消毒,围手术期分期和病例分期区域监测设备流量的每个阶段。这种对案例推车流程和其他类型支持流程的自动可视性,通过减少搜索设备和手动记录流程所花费的时间,节省了宝贵的员工时间。这种可视性还可以提高程序吞吐量并自动化文档化过程以进行分析和持续改进。”

 

患者安全

除了确保格林维尔医院能够跟踪OR内及其整个设施中的标记资产外,关键考虑因素还在于确保所选择的RFID技术不会干扰任何医疗设备或现有IT基础设施。

 

“根据JCAHO程序,医院进行了自己的独立测试,以确保系统不会干扰任何其他医院设备,包括手术室中使用的所有电子医疗设备。 我们还进行了一项研究,以确保UHF RFID门户不会引起心脏起搏器的任何问题,或者危及患者安全。我们的正式测试使我们有信心在医院的所有区域安全地部署主动和被动标签和读卡器,以便日常使用,”Mateka说。

 

结果

鉴于医院的人工节省,预防损失,医生满意度和提高生产力,Mateka预计一年内可获得投资回报。“节省时间和提高生产率是该系统的重要优势。自从我们实施SynTrack for Healthcare和RFID门户网站以来,没有标记设备丢失在垃圾箱中。 最终,我们还希望能够通过减少损失和我们的利用率历史报告来减少我们的设备采购,”他说。

 

随着系统的成功,IBSS和格林维尔医院系统正在共同努力,将解决方案扩展到校园的其他区域,以跟踪其他重症监护设备。 

 

 

Greenville Hospital Deploys Integrated RFID Solution for Operating Room Asset Tracking

 

The Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center spans five hospital facilities, with 1,110 beds and 32 surgical suites across 90,000 square feet of physical facilities, serving the citizens of upstate South Carolina. Of the hospital?s 7,500 employees, approximately 1,000 are physicians. Each year, these physicians perform over 33,000 inpatient and outpatient procedures, incurring about $52 million in expenses, or about half the total for the entire system.

 

At this size, it was not uncommon for expensive surgical instruments (probes) and other equipment to be misplaced or lost, so Greenville Hospital?s materials services group sought to minimize asset loss and reduce the time spent locating OR materials. Though a wireless network was in place, John Mateka, executive director, materials services, determined it was insufficient to meet all of the hospital?s asset tracking needs, so he and his staff began investigating an integrated Wi-Fi, UHF RFID, bar coding and mobile computing based solution. 

 

Mateka and his team consulted with several IT integration vendors and ultimately selected and began working with Integrated Business Systems and Services, Inc (IBSS) of Columbia, South Carolina. To deliver the UHF RFID component of the solution, IBSS turned to the Industrial Portals Division of Jamison Door, a company very familiar with RFID asset tracking and loss prevention solutions through its work with leading RFID technology and solutions company ThingMagic. 

 

“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…”

 

- John Mateka, executive director, materials services, Greenville Hospital System University Medical Center

 

The Solution 

 

Working with Jamison Door, IBSS designed a heavy-duty RFID portal for the OR linen cart exit to the laundry and decontamination rooms. The exit portals include ThingMagic Mercury6 RFID readers and antennas used to read tagged devices, such as $35,000 to $50,000 surgical instruments (probes) that, because of their compact size, have the potential to be lost within bulkybed linens and scrubs sent to the laundry or the trash. Now when a tagged item – such as a “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…”

 

- John Mateka, executive director, materials services, Greenville Hospital System University Medical CenterGreenville Hospital Deploys Integrated RFID Solution for Operating Room Asset Tracking JADAK Case Study probe or other surgical tool – is read by the portal, an audible alarm is sounded and a flashing red light alerts an OR attendant who locates and retrieves the device before it is mistakenly discarded. Data gathered from this automated process helps hospital management continuously improve the activities associated with asset preparation and use. 

 

In addition, Greenville Hospital is in the process of deploying ThingMagic Astra UHF RFID readers throughout its main facility to track nearly 5,000 pieces of mobile medical equipment (e.g.infusion pumps) by utilizing the combined RTLS and UHF RFID capabilities of the IBSS SynTrack for Healthcare solution. The RFID portals, Astra readers, and RTLS tracking technology are integrated via the SynTrack application, allowing Greenville’s staff to not only know the location of the tagged equipment, but of equal importance, its status, utilization efficiency, and history of use. 

 

The SynTrack system provides Greenville staff with handheld computers and application software that can locate and map any type of tagged asset, which is then tracked via the RTLS technology and the ThingMagic Astra Readers. Through this combination of location and utilization information, the system produces customized reports detailing asset usage and history. The Greenville system also provides hospital management with efficiency reporting related to the processes and resources utilized to deliver health services associated with the tagged assets. 

 

“We had a limited budget, an existing Cisco wireless network we wanted to utilize, and we didn’t want to get locked in to anything that might become outdated,” said Mateka. “Now that the system is in place, authorized hospital staff can access the SynTrack application through a web browser or mobile computing device, and locate any type of tagged equipment. Everything in the OR is tracked constantly by the RTLS technology and/or the Jamison Door exit portal, with the information relayed via our 802.11b wireless network. Users can select some or all of the items found, then view those on a display map that includes location, a description of the object, and a photo.” 

 

“It?s essential that OR case carts be sterile and ready to use, and SynTrack provides staff with visibility of all carts, including status, location and case assignment,” said Dr. George Mendenhall, CEO of IBSS. “Authorized hospital personnel can also monitor each stage of equipment flow through contaminated cart storage, decontamination and sterilization, perioperative staging and the case staging area. This automatic visibility to the flow of case carts and other types of support process flows, frees valuable staff time by reducing time spent searching for equipment and manually documenting processes. This visibility can also increase procedure throughput and automate the documenting process for analysis and continuous improvement.”

 

Patient Safety

 

In addition to ensuring that Greenville Hospital could track tagged assets within the OR and throughout their facilities, a critical consideration was making sure the RFID technologies chosen did not interfere with any medical devices or existing IT infrastructure. 

 

“In compliance with JCAHO procedures, the hospital undertook its own independent testing to make sure the system did not interfere with any other hospital equipment, including all of the electronic medical equipment utilized in the operating room. We also conducted a study to make sure the UHF RFID portals did not cause any issue with pacemakers, or otherwise jeopardize patient safety. Our formalized testing gave us the confidence to safely deploy active and passive tags and readers through all areas of the hospital for everyday use,” said Mateka. 

 

The Results 

 

Given the hospital?s 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.
