On Wednesday, March 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak an official pandemic as it continues to spread globally. With hospitals and clinics quickly filling up with sick patients seeking care, the need for timely clinician response has never been higher. Asset tracking with Digital Medical provides the streamlined response rate that hospitals need to successfully handle the overwhelming patient demand.
Most symptoms of COVID-19 are relatively minor, similar to that of a cold or flu. However, in severe cases, COVID-19 can cause breathing and respiratory issues, leading to death if left untreated. This symptom especially is leading to an increased demand for ventilators (breathing machines) in hospitals nationwide.
The ability to quickly locate valuable assets, such as ventilators, during a healthcare emergency like the COVID-19 pandemic, could be the difference between life and death for any number of patients as seen here. Digital Medical’s live tracking solutions prevent lost and misplaced assets so that clinicians can focus on what matters most: saving lives during a healthcare crisis.
Traditional asset tracking with RFID is labor intensive while Digital Medical’s Bluetooth technology allows for streamlined tracking. Get started with Digital Medical’s Asset Tracking today by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
