The Health Care Interpreter Network (HCIN) of Northern California is a system of shared remote interpreter services operated by Northern California public hospitals. Running on a Cisco Medical-Grade Network, this integrated solution of voice, video, and data communication offers hospital staff instant access to trained interpreters. The network currently routes approximately 3500 videoconference and phone calls per month, with an average response time of 22 seconds.
Hospital staff must track a wide variety of devices that are constantly being moved. By one estimate, hospitals cannot find 15 to 20 percent of the devices they own. Of the eight hours needed to perform preventive maintenance on an intravenous (IV) pump, seven hours are typically spent locating the pump. An average 400-bed healthcare facility can save from $400,000 to $500,000 annually by reducing short-term equipment leases, loss prevention, fewer purchases, and labor savings.
