What do taxi cabs and IV pumps have in common? You can never find one when you need one. Strategies to manage healthcare assets are varied, yet caregiver frustrations over finding resources persist. This session elevates the equipment availability conundrum by showing how infusion pump shortages spread like infections, and how data scientists at The Johns Hopkins Hospital use real-time locating system (RTLS) data and artificial intelligence to identify and combat asset inefficiencies. Initial findings inspired this team to study which traits of care communities and behaviors are more likely to result in shortages, and where modified distribution methods can increase pump availability. Exploring the science behind the data, this innovative presentation shares how machine-logic has helped increase pump availability across multiple areas by looking for efficiency gains that keep mobile equipment within care communities that display successful patterns of connectivity and sharing.
