Utilization Management

Hill-Rom's AssetAdvantage Utilization Management is a turnkey asset utilization program with a contractual efficiency guarantee. Using dedicated people, processes, and technology, Hill-Rom will make sure your equipment is always clean and reliable and that the right equipment is in the right place at the right time. As a result, your hospital will:

Realize CareReturn™ Staff Service — Nurses can spend up to 90 minutes per shift searching for, cleaning, and even hiding equipment. By eliminating the need for nurses to search for or clean equipment, Utilization Management returns patient care time to nurses. The same is true for biomedical technicians who search high and low for equipment in need of scheduled preventative maintenance. AssetAdvantage Utilization Management tracks maintenance schedules and delivers equipment right on queue, eliminating wasteful biomed searching.

Realize Financial Savings — The average hospital achieves an equipment utilization rate of 40-45%. Experience indicates that the optimal rate is twice the average. This means that the average hospital has approximately two times the equipment it needs. With AssetAdvantage Utilization Management the hospital will achieve financial savings by reducing capital and rental expense, as well as maintenance costs and equipment loss.

Gain Peace of Mind — Stop worrying about equipment expenses, purchasing decisions, rental fees, equipment availability, overbilling, etc. Read a Thank You letter from Carole Wiberg (Supply Chain Director at CJW Medical Center) about how Hill-Rom AssetAdvantage Utilization Management kept the hospital running and saved her vacation at the same time.

By tracking every activity on every piece of equipment, AssetAdvantage® Utilization Management provides documented process compliance for JCAHO audits and other process compliance needs.
