Charge, store, secure, sanitise and manage hospital and patient-owned phones, tablets, laptops and more.
The deployment of mobile devices throughout the healthcare field is quickly expanding. 85% of organisations are currently in the research or pilot phase of a deployment–many of which are implementing mobile devices with the goal of improving communications, reducing costs or increasing revenues.1 Would it surprise you learn that 73% of organisations fail to plan how they’ll centrally charge and secure those devices,1 prohibiting their program’s ability to achieve intended results?
Statistics show that 10% of devices break or go missing each year of a deployment,1 which may be avoided if the devices are centrally secured and charged. This critical oversight can create painful hassles for employees and administrators alike. PC Locs exists to help organisations rise above the rest and achieve deployment objectives by offering a mobile charging station to streamline device deployment and secure your investments.
As mobile devices become even more critical in day-to-day operations within hospitals, so too becomes the need to safely secure and charge those devices. PC Locs offers a variety of multi-device charging stations to meet the needs of individual departments within a hospital.
We can help your organisation reach beyond digital security to provide an additional layer of physical security. PC Locs products also create employee efficiencies and increase patient engagement, education and entertainment. In a world where patient satisfaction is as important as the medical care they receive, mobile devices will only become more important to patient experience.
Helping Healthcare Systems Reach Big-Picture Goals
1. Collect & Access Patient Data
The ability to quickly and accurately collect patient data drives many organisations to deploy mobile devices. 41% of data breaches are caused by lost or stolen devices.2 Securing those devices in a durable PC Locs charging solution can protect your business from thousands in crippling fines.
2. Decrease Costs
Mobile devices decrease costs by reducing manual and paper processes, but often overlooked is that the healthcare industry spends more than $45 billion annually on direct costs caused by HAIs.3 Cell phones carry 18x more bacteria than a public restroom, which is why providing highly-effective, touchless and easily-adoptable UV-C device sanitation can reduce the number of preventable infections by eliminating germs and pathogens to a 6-kill log. When UV-C is paired with a secure charging station, hospitals can also expect to lower per-employee cost up to $1,800 per year by reducing lost or stolen devices.
3. Accurate Billing
Uncharged or missing devices can prolong the time it takes to record treatments and prescriptions, which could lead to inaccurate documentation. Using a secure, centralised charging station and a UV-C sanitisation device ensures that your devices are charged, accessible, disinfected and ready to use.
4. Improve Communication
Uncharged and missing devices can derail an organisation’s goal to improve communication. Centralised, secure device charging and sanitisation sets your plan up for success by arming employees with devices are easy to access, ready for use and effectively disinfected.
5. Increase Efficiency
In many cases, mobile devices are more efficient than paper processes. Devices that are centrally stored in a charging station with LED charging status indicator lights, such as a Putnam 8, ensure employees always know where to find a fully charged device. By placing mobile device sanitisation stations in visible and convenient locations–such as next to a hand washing station or outside of the ICU/NICU–healthcare workers are more likely to utilise those resources. UV-C rapid sanitisation only takes 30 seconds, 6x quicker than traditional wipes, encouraging busy healthcare professionals to disinfect their devices.
6. Improve Patient Satisfaction
Most patients expect their hospitals and caregivers to follow standard cleanliness practices. Many don’t know that 1 out of every 20 patients will get a HAI when admitted into the hospital.4 Acquiring an HAI could extend a hospital stay and even lead to re-admittance–causing upset patients and families. Installing an easy-to-use UV-C sanitation device that is faster and more effective than other sanitisation methods will reduce HAIs and keep patients healthy.
6. Improve Staff Satisfaction
Because healthcare workers may need to clean their hands as many as 100x per 12-hour shift to comply with healthy hand hygiene,5 it’s no wonder hospitals are struggling to achieve hand washing compliance rates of even 50%.6 Providing healthcare workers with convenient, fast and simple processes for disinfecting their mobile technology will encourage busy healthcare professionals to change their daily behaviour, thus increasing hygiene compliance long term. Using a UV-C technology to kill germs and pathogens on mobile devices but making it convenient and keeping it to 30 seconds frees up your staff and ensures they can focus on what makes them happy; caring for people.
