Michigan Medicine to Share Success Driving Asset Management Efficiency, Visibility

Breakout session to be presented at RFID Journal Live!, May 9-11 in Phoenix, Arizona

WALTHAM, Mass., May 4, 2017 — STANLEY Healthcare, a market leading provider of visibility and analytics solutions for the healthcare industry, today announced that its AeroScout® Asset Management solution will be the subject of a breakout session being presented by Michigan Medicine, the academic medical center of the University of Michigan, at the 2017 RFID Journal Live! conference, which kicks off May 9 in Phoenix, Arizona.

The session—to be delivered by Lisa Borowicz, business systems analyst, Amy Campbell, senior project manager, and Hank Davis, manager, of Michigan Medicine—will highlight the health system’s experiences and results using RFID capabilities.
At the 1,000-bed facility, Michigan Medicine’s Material Services Patient Equipment Department manages more than 12,000 pieces of durable medical equipment. The health system’s initial investment in 500 RFID tags marked the beginning of an ongoing journey to greater efficiency and visibility in managing assets. Today, the Material Services team uses the AeroScout solution to manage about 60% of the system’s high-value assets across five buildings on its Ann Arbor campus.

STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout Asset Management solution helps hospitals and clinics automatically monitor the status and location of assets. Real-time visibility helps to reduce staff time spent searching for, delivering, maintaining and cleaning equipment. The solution also increases equipment utilization and lowers shrinkage rates while decreasing rental fees and penalties.

By the end of 2017, Michigan Medicine aims to have more than 7,000 assets tagged—with longer-term plans to apply STANLEY Healthcare’s MobileView Analytics solution to achieve a higher level of operational insight and automation for inventory quantity and location, par levels and equipment process cycle status.

“We are looking forward to sharing our experience with RFID asset management with our industry peers,” said Hank Davis, manager at Michigan Medicine. “As an organization, we continue to see value from real-time locating technology in helping us manage a large fleet of mobile medical assets across our organization.”

RFID Journal LIVE! is the world's largest event focused on radio frequency identification and related technologies. Now in its 15th year, the 2017 program features more than 100 sessions—including more than 50 new end-user case studies.
