Using LEAN Six Sigma techniques, Central Sterile Processing and Materials Management leaders at Peninsula Regional Medical Center (PRMC) identified specialty bed management as an area ripe for improvement. They were spending too much time looking for these assets and renting too many specialty beds. Initially, the team focused on streamlining its order form process. They soon realized they were getting better—but at the wrong thing. They still weren’t achieving the desired results.

Read this case study to learn how Peninsula Regional Medical Center implemented STANLEY Healthcare’s AeroScout® Real Time Locating System (RTLS) and uses real-time location to improve specialty bed management, dramatically reducing rental costs.
