Maintenance? Repair? Incident? The more medical devices that are in use, the more important it is to have all insights available in a single system— thereby eliminating redundant data collection. The right interfaces make that possible. Since 2022, healthcare services provider Evidia has used teamplay Fleet Connect1 to accomplish tasks faster based on reliable data.
On the one hand, Siemens Healthineers offers holistic equipment information, through teamplay Fleet—the online services solution designed to help streamline fleet management. On the other hand, Evidia group has its own enterprise asset management solution waveware® by Loy & Hutz. At first glance, these are two separate worlds: while they show similar content, they are not aligned automatically. That is until we interlink them with the teamplay Fleet Connect interfaces, a set of powerful Application Programming Interfaces (APIs).
„We save our radiology technologists 30 minutes per the incident report.“
Powerful interfaces for reliable data
Peace of mind with up-to-date information
teamplay Fleet Connect: For small medical practices and big networks alike
“The implementation of the Teamplay Fleet Connect interface is flexible, regardless of which enterprise asset management system is used by a hospital or provider network,” explains Stefan Hentschke , product manager for Teamplay Fleet Germany. Evidia uses waveware® by Loy & Hutz, but teamplay Fleet Connect can also be utilized to connect with other asset management solutions.
API: An API, which stands for 'application programming interface,' is like a bridge that allows different computer programs and systems to talk to each other. It's a set of rules and tools that lets software applications share information and work together seamlessly, even if they were created by different companies. Imagine you're using a smartphone . When you open a weather app to check the forecast, that app doesn't create its weather data. Instead, it uses an API to connect to a weather service and obtain the latest weather information. This way, you get accurate, up-to-date data without the weather app having to be an expert in meteorology. The benefits of using APIs include: saving time by eliminating manual data collection, access to up-to-date information through continuous data exchange, and consistent and reliable data provisioning to empower decision-making.
Asset management solutions include solutions such as Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), and Computer-Aided Facilities Management (CAFM). Using integrated asset management solutions, such as EAM for comprehensive lifecycle management, CMMS for streamlined maintenance operations, and CAFM for efficient facilities and asset management, is vital for optimizing asset performance, reducing downtime, and ensuring smooth facility operations.
teamplay Fleet is the Fleet Management app designed to help healthcare organizations streamline the management of their fleet of medical devices from Siemens Healthineers. This solution includes efficient maintenance management, cybersecurity assessment, and regulatory compliance, and it helps organizations evaluate and develop their overall asset performance. teamplay Fleet can be interlinked with enterprise-wide asset management solutions by utilizing the teamplay Fleet Connect interfaces. This ensures transparency, quality, and reliability of data, saving time and enhancing operational efficiency.
