Clinical engineering professionals gathered at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge to attend Harland Simon’s very first RFID Discovery User Group Meeting (UGM) on 19th February 2015.
The event offered participants the chance to learn more about the new features of the latest version of RFiD Discovery tracking software featuring automated email alerts and the ability to create assigned locations for assets that enable users to detect if they are moved from allocated locations.
A highlight of the day were two customer case study presentations from Bryan Hynd of NHS Forth Valley and Simon Dawkins of Addenbrooke’s Hospital who both shared their experiences of using the Harland Simon solution to manage mobile assets in large hospital environments.
A training session on the day provided useful best practice advice to ensure users can make the most of available functionality and optimise performance by setting up their systems appropriately. The event was also an excellent opportunity for NHS Trusts to network and share their experiences of the day-to-day challenges of tracking mobile medical assets to help cut costs and improve patient safety by ensuring that regular maintenance is completed.
“The event was a great opportunity to bring together our users and update them on our software and system capabilities. Hearing user experiences and feedback is vital to ensure we continue to develop products that fulfil our client’s requirements,” said Andrew James, Sales Manager RFID Discovery.
