EQ2, LLC, a Charlotte, N.C.-based provider of healthcare computerized maintenance management software (CMMS), announces a new integration with Stanley Healthcare’s Real-Time Locating System (RTLS) platform to support a wide range of use cases impacting care delivery throughout the enterprise.

This integration enables asset information in EQ2’s HEMS (Hospital Equipment Management System) CMMS to be updated in Stanley Healthcare’s MobileView software, while real-time location information for individual assets is sent to HEMS. Such capabilities, EQ2 officials say, will allow hospitals to better manage assets.

Key benefits include:

  • The location of medical devices and equipment can be seen through the asset record or work order in HEMS; when maintenance is needed, the asset can be quickly found, corrected, and returned to service.
  • Whenever assets are added or updated, the details are updated in HEMS, which automatically updates MobileView.
  • When an asset or group of assets are recalled, all items can be found and appropriate action taken.
  • Taking inventory counts is simplified, helping to reduce shrinkage and improve accounting accuracy.

EQ2 officials say combining asset and location information provides hospitals with information to perform timely maintenance, reduce “lost equipment,” and improve uptime—all of which helps to improve asset return on investment.
