U.S. Medical Equipment Consultants, Inc. Engages with VMware's Pivotal Labs to create, test and deploy solutions for healthcare organizations

September 03, 2020 / PR Newswire

U.S. Medical Equipment Consultants, Inc. (USMEDIC) engaged with VMware's Pivotal Labs to create, test and deploy a solution that enables healthcare organizations to quickly locate and manage critical medical equipment used to care for patients with Covid-19. In addition to providing equipment location data, the solution allows users to determine equipment's availability for use with patients, request equipment repair service and perform other vital equipment management duties using a smartphone or tablet. During the course of its work with various healthcare organizations in the United States, USMEDIC was made aware that hospital staff were often spending many hours a day merely locating vital medical equipment needed to deliver critical care to patients. During the Covid-19 pandemic, the issue has been exacerbated in many healthcare systems as equipment is re-distributed to facilities throughout the systems based on surging patient volumes. While existing equipment tracking options are available, these solutions can take many months of work to deploy and frequently cost millions of dollars to implement.
