Revolutionizing Hospital Asset Management: The Power of iRISupply RE Software

In the fast-paced world of healthcare, managing high-value assets efficiently is crucial for maintaining operational effectiveness and ensuring patient care. Hospitals often face persistent challenges with asset management, such as misplaced equipment, unauthorized borrowing, and excessive administrative tasks. Enter iRISupply RE, a cutting-edge solution designed to transform how healthcare providers store and manage their valuable assets.

 The Challenges of Asset Management in Healthcare

Hospitals deal with a wide range of high-value, high-turnover assets daily. From transport patient monitors and personal protective equipment (PPE) to electrophysiology cables and communication devices like Vocera badges, the need for efficient tracking and management is paramount. Traditional methods involving manual logs and spreadsheets are not only time-consuming but also prone to errors and losses.

Common challenges include:

  • Assets hidden in desks or drawers: Vital equipment stored in unsecured places, leading to availability issues.
  • Untraceable borrowing: Departments borrowing assets without proper documentation, resulting in asset loss.
  • Frequent shortages: Critical equipment not available when needed, impacting patient care.
  • Budget overruns: Constantly purchasing new assets to replace lost ones, straining hospital budgets.

How iRISupply RE Transforms Asset Management

iRISupply RE leverages a combination of RFID-enabled smart cabinets and sophisticated software to offer a comprehensive solution for asset management. Here’s how it addresses the common challenges:

Secure Valuable Assets

iRISupply RE ensures that valuable assets are securely stored in RFID-enabled cabinets. Access is restricted to authorized personnel who use hospital-issued badges to unlock the cabinets. This system automatically detects and records every transaction—whether assets are taken or returned—thus ensuring security and availability. Customizable power outlets within the cabinets also allow for the recharging of electronic devices, ensuring they are always ready for use.

Ensure Employee Accountability

By requiring badge access for asset removal, iRISupply RE significantly improves employee compliance with established protocols. The system’s reporting capabilities enable administrators to monitor who accessed which assets and when, fostering a culture of accountability. Real-time alerts can notify both users and administrators of any deviations from standard procedures, encouraging immediate corrective action.

Eliminate Manual Data Entry

Manual logs are a thing of the past with iRISupply RE. The system’s RFID technology automates data capture, providing accurate and timely records of asset transactions. This reduces the risk of lost or misplaced assets and ensures comprehensive tracking of item-level details, such as lot numbers, serial numbers, and expiration dates.

Optimize Inventory Control

Hospitals often struggle with inventory control, leading to shortages or overstocking. iRISupply RE’s intelligent tracking and reporting capabilities provide valuable insights into asset usage trends. This data helps hospitals optimize their inventory levels, ensuring they have the right amount of equipment on hand without overextending their budgets.

Reduce Time Spent Managing Inventory

iRISupply RE significantly reduces the time staff spend on administrative tasks. By automating asset tracking and providing real-time location data, the system allows healthcare professionals to focus more on patient care. Key features include:

  • Built-in reports: Quickly track down missing assets.
  • Real-time location tracking: Locate needed equipment across the hospital instantly.
  • Elimination of manual logs: Streamline processes and reduce errors.
  • Real-time alerts: Address inappropriate actions as they occur.

Real-World Impact

The benefits of iRISupply RE are already being realized in hospitals across the country. For instance, a Radiology Manager at an Academic Medical Center in Massachusetts reported saving $60,000 annually by eliminating waste associated with replacement batteries for Vocera units. This example highlights the substantial cost savings and efficiency improvements that iRISupply RE can bring to healthcare facilities.


In today’s healthcare environment, efficient asset management is not just a luxury—it’s a necessity. iRISupply RE offers a powerful solution that secures valuable assets, ensures employee accountability, eliminates manual data entry, optimizes inventory control, and reduces time spent on administrative tasks. By implementing iRISupply RE, hospitals can enhance their operational efficiency, reduce costs, and ultimately provide better patient care.
