The calculator enables health-care providers to enter information regarding the number of units of various types of mobile medical equipment that they would like to track, as well as their current estimated asset-utilization rate and data about the number of assets replaced and rented annually. The tool then applies assumptions based on information from hospitals that have already deployed an RTLS solution.
The calculator enables a hospital executive to estimate the potential annual savings in rental costs. as well as the capital expenditures of replacing equipment, that can be achieved by better managing assets and increasing their utilization rate.
"Hospitals around the world have been deploying RTLS solutions to improve the way they manage assets, and we now have a great deal of information about the financial benefits," says Mark Roberti, RFID Journal's founder and editor. "This calculator now gives hospital executives considering investing in an RTLS the ability to determine the likely benefit, based on the size of their hospital, the assets they own and the amount they spend to rent equipment annually."
