Overview

To combat rising rental costs, improve both the delivery and the availability of standard medical assets at the point of use and trouble locating medical equipment, this US-based healthcare provider deployed an asset management RTLS solution developed by Sparity, allowing the healthcare provider to track and manage assets throughout hospitals and entire health systems using their existing Wi-Fi network.

Challenges

The challenge was to improve both the delivery and the availability of standard medical assets at the point of use. Being a healthcare provider, the client’s goal was eventually to decrease the inventory and right size of the staff for its solution users. Furthermore, the healthcare client was facing rising rental costs, equipment hoarding issues and trouble locating equipment.

Implementation

Quantify Churn Rate: By analyzing relevant data points – from past visits to household composition to family income – Healthcare clients can identify those active patients who are at risk and those who are not at risk.

Data preparation and preprocessing: Appropriate data is collected, prepared, preprocessed, and transformed in a form suitable for building machine learning models and performing feature engineering.

Adopted a multi-pronged approach by analyzing the results of your marketing campaign – from email to direct mail to social media and develop a program that targets new patients and keeps them coming back for years.

Identified and tracked all of micro
and mini-processes involved in patient life cycle
for to prevent churn and target action to
