Massachusetts General Hospital Achieves Results with Mobile Aspects Integrated RFID Supply Cabinets
Mobile Aspects RFID TechnologyIncreases Charge Capture by 25% and Reduces Inventory Stock-Outs At Massachusetts General Hospital
PITTSBURGH, PA – November 3, 2010 – Mobile Aspects announced today that Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) has fully implemented its radio frequency identification (RFID) enabled supply automation system to store, track, and manage medical devices and supplies used for neuro interventional procedures in the IR division within the Department of Radiology. The system known as iRISupply™, uses passive RFID technology and real-time data management to automate clinician workflows and streamline communication processes for product storage, tracking, and supply chain management.
The department implemented the supply automation technology in 2009 to manage the storage and utilization of high cost implantable devices such as coils, stents and catheters. Through a six month post-implementation analysis, the organization realized an increase in charge capture accuracy of nearly 25% by tracking the use of the high cost items through the Mobile Aspects technology. In addition, clinical supply chain processes were optimized to decrease the occurrence of special requisitions by 50% through the avoidance of stock-outs and rush orders. The total benefits realized by the organization approaches nearly $1 million annually.
“We are pleased to be able to partner with an organization as prestigious as MGH to provide a solution that creates a highly automated and accurate approach in managing their interventional devices and supplies,” shared Suneil Mandava, President and CEO of Mobile Aspects. “More importantly, we are excited to have them realize measurable operational improvements in their charge capture accuracy and clinical supply chain efficiency to justify their investment in our technology.”
