Hospitals need to know where their assets are. Hospitals may have assets that are not commonly found in other businesses, but they are no different from other corporations in the sense that if they do not always know the locations of their assets. Knowing where your assets are helps a hospital to effectively keep costs to a minimum and helps them to stay competitive. When hospitals do not have a good handle on their assets, patient services may not be at their optimum level, assets may be under-utilized or simply idle, and returns on hospital assets may not be as expected or as needed.
Assets in a hospital are generally more mobile than assets of many other businesses which makes hospital asset tracking even more important. Unless a hospital has a great way to keep track of the location and usage of the assets, the people working to make the hospital successful will be behind the curve of what competitors may be doing.
