Capital Planning Insights
Insight Capital Planning is designed to help healthcare facilities maximise results from equipment investment, increase operational efficiencies, improve patient outcomes and reduce caregiver exposure to risk or physical overload.
The assessment tool provides insight into a customer’s equipment capabilities by:
- Identifying equipment gaps or surplus equipment
- Minimising the cost of ownership of medical equipment
- Ensuring the timely replacement of old, unreliable equipment
Effective analysis helps to implement targeted investments that can improve efficiency and reduce the exposure of physical overload to caregivers while performing routine care procedures.
The caregivers are the most valuable resource. Investing in suitable equipment and training to help them perform patient handling transfers and use equipment safely and efficiently benefits the caregivers, patients and also the organisation.
The Care Thermometer assessment tool provides insight into the transfer and equipment choices caregivers make, highlighting caregiver exposure to risk and enabling educational programmes to be tailored specifically to the needs of the organisation. It provides the foundation to the Clinical Consulting Ergocoach Programme.
Pressure Ulcer Prevalence
These assessments provide detailed evaluations of population characteristics, clinical outcomes and concordance with clinical protocols. The reports identify areas of best practice and those areas that would benefit from targeted interventions, enabling healthcare providers to manage their legal and patient/client safety obligations while monitoring costs.
Increasingly customers want to compare the quality of care provided in their facility against certain benchmarks or to evaluate their own performance over time.
