iAssets provides users with the ability to locate, manage and utilise vital hospital equipment more efficiently.

A module in the iFIT suite, iAssets tracks and intelligently manages your mobile hospital assets, ensuring that you have a 360-degree view of everything required to manage equipment effectively – location history, availability, maintenance, assignment to patients and overall utilisation.

Using both passive and active radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, iAssets tracks item movement and availability, manages asset assignment to patients and continuously checks their maintenance schedules. In addition, iAssets' new SmartFind feature offers an interactive map of the hospital estate, pinpointing the location of hospital equipment in real time. This ensures shorter search times and increased patient safety.

With GS1 compliance built into the platform, the solution aligns with Scan4Safety programmes, providing traceability of the assets assigned to each patient, including time and location data.

It also aligns with best practice as laid down by the National Patient Safety Agency (NPSA) and the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The system can be deployed at a departmental level and then extend its scope, leading to increased savings as more departments embrace the solution.

The benefits of iAssets for NHS Trusts:
  • Provides real-time asset location
  • Reduces audit time from hours to minutes
  • Maximises device usage and centralises medical device equipment management
  • Reduces overspend
  • GS1 compliant, supporting Scan4Safety
  • Maximises the utilisation of equipment and eliminates unnecessary re-procurement
  • Predicts and supports preparation of equipment for scheduled maintenance or decontamination routines
  • Frees up staff to spend more time providing patient care by not searching for items
  • Integrates with existing asset management systems
