Using a digital platform, especially an inventory processing mobile app, for hospital equipment management has a lot of advantages. The first is obvious: maintain your facility’s equipment ledger on a single platform, empowering teams to edit, add, and share as needed.
A digital inventory is also invaluable financially, helping forecast replacements and purchases, and to maintain an accurate ledger for insurance purposes.
Managing equipment lifecycles can also be expensive — facilities spend up to $93 billion each year on associated costs! Streamlining inventory tools and protocols helps your facility improve equipment processing, boost reliability, and keep track of your assets at all times.
Fully Integrated Inventory Processing Mobile App
BidMed’s inventory mobile app for iOS is a key part of our Helix tech suite. It’s a powerful solution to upload equipment, plus standardize and optimize inventory workflows. In fact, Helix Mobile can double inventory processing speeds for the average user.
Need to create an inventory from scratch?
Helix Mobile users average 620 assets per week. That’s compared to just over 300 assets processed in the same time with a separate barcode scanner and laptop.
Inventory Faster Using a Pre-Loaded List
Using a pre-loaded list with the app, teams increase speeds even more. Leveraging an existing but uncertain database enables users to process as many as 750 on-site assets per week.
This expedited processing is possible thanks to our built-in barcode scanner and autocomplete features. The scanner allows users to process barcodes with OCR, or type them manually using an asset ID number. With autocomplete, our library of 30,000 unique make/model combinations helps users reduce processing time and errors, providing suggested equipment names as users type.
Seamless Integration with Cloud-Based Inventory Software
Helix’s inventory processing mobile app integrates seamlessly with our cloud-based Helix tech suite. Data syncs directly to Workflow+, where teams can edit and manage inventory workflows.
Within Workflow+, you can:
Simplify and improve compliance with automated workflows and digital approval processes.
Create consistency and transparency by connecting your entire team on one platform.
