Fremont, CA: New features from TRIMEDX, an industry-leading, technology-enabled provider of clinical engineering, medical device cybersecurity, and clinical asset management solutions, will help healthcare organizations reduce cybersecurity risks, improve patient safety, and optimize medical equipment across all sites of care.
The new Reallocation Platform and a trio of medical device cybersecurity enhancements will help TRIMEDX better serve healthcare providers dealing with ongoing financial pressures, rising supply chain and labor costs, the shift of healthcare delivery to outpatient settings, and increased cybersecurity risks.
"Clinical assets account for more than a quarter of a health system's capital expenditures," says TRIMEDX CEO Henry Hummel. "This is a huge financial resource that may be leveraged to assist organizations in meeting their financial goals without jeopardizing patient care or safety."
"We are committed to ongoing solution enhancements that provide objective information and recommendations to healthcare executives in IT, finance, and operations that inform decisions across their continuum of care and support the implementation of their strategies,"
said LeAnne Hester Chief Marketing and Solutions Officer.
The Reallocation Platform is a web-based application that uses TRIMEDX's proprietary RUDR Score to identify assets that can be "reallocated" to another location within a healthcare system. Medical devices with low utilization rates in their current sites are listed on the Reallocation Platform after being approved by a healthcare system. Administrators from other areas within the same healthcare system can view, browse, and search for equipment needed at their facility. Leaders can compare devices based on various factors, including make, model, manufacturer, age, and reliability, to discover the equipment that best meets their requirements.
"The Reallocation Platform helps healthcare systems avoid wasteful capital expenditures associated with purchasing equipment for additional places of care that they don't need systemwide," says Dave Klumpe, president of clinical asset management at TRIMEDX. "Plus, adding extra equipment to a system that it doesn't require raises operational costs unnecessarily.
