Exit Stage Right

March 3, 2020

A few years ago, I was on site at a hospital to complete their yearly preventative maintenance on their Patient Security System. My inspection was going smoothly until it came time to do Final Exit Testing.

Too Many Computers?

January 29, 2020

Just a brief decade ago, computers and electronic charting were trickling into many hospital environments.  Then came electronic medical/health records and the flood gates opened – computers were needed everywhere.  Desktops, laptops, WOWs (workstations on wheels), tablets, smart phones, and more. 

Simply Speaking

January 7, 2020

The adage that if you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough, rings true especially when it comes to the complexity of the solutions we represent. Throughout our website we mention:

Identifying the role of supply-chain in preventing “Never Events”

December 17, 2019

The sad but true statistic remains that over 250,000 preventable deaths occur across the US healthcare system each year. A little more math shows that almost 700 individuals every day succumb to some sort of medical error – what the healthcare system refers to as an “adverse event.” In addressing the magnitude of this data, leaders across the healthcare ecosystem continue working to identify and quantify a wide range of solutions, but remain frustrated by the complexity of the system they work within and the lack of standardization – and transparency – across the products and procedures that intersect at the patient point of care. 

"Wish all vendors were as good as IMS!"

December 11, 2019

Being a service technician has taken me into hundreds of different hospitals over the 14 plus years I have been with IMS. In addition to installing new Infant Security Systems for hospitals, one of the jobs I have done in many of them is completing their Annual Preventative Maintenance (PM). As part of the PM, I interact with numerous Nursing Directors, Nurse Managers, Charge Nurses, Bio-Med Technicians, Maintenance Technicians, Security Managers and Officers, and a host of other hospital employees.

Slaying the Paperwork Dragon

November 13, 2019

Most of us would agree that paperwork is a pain.  For example, according to the IRS, American taxpayers spend an average of 11 hours each year preparing their tax return paperwork.[1]  Think that’s bad?  Imagine being an auto manufacturer submitting documentation for something called the Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard.  According to the federal government, that process takes 8,354 hours.[2]  That’s the equivalent of four full-time employees working on nothing but “Federal Motor Vehicle Theft Prevention Standard” paperwork for an entire year!

Shocking Statistics

October 31, 2019

Tis' the season to plan costumes, shop for candy, watch horror movies, jaunt through the local haunted house and simply get your scare gene tickled. In keeping with that theme, let's talk statistics, frightening stats that make you shutter!

Do You Want Your House Built by the Low Bidder?

October 16, 2019

Organizations always want “the most bang for the buck” to maximize available dollars for a particular item and/or project. So, they solicit bids. This seems like a responsible way to prove to the financial stakeholders that their interests are being well served.  But is this really true? 

It's Storytime

October 3, 2019
