Introduction Keeping track of devices across large organisations can be challenging. Hospitals contain many electronic devices and pieces of equipment that can be moved around the building and lost. The aim of this project was to develop an electronic system for the management of devices with an app to allow for devices to be loaned to named individuals.
Results A web user interface was developed to allow administrators to create a database of equipment owned by an organisation with descriptions, serial numbers and physical locations. Each piece of equipment logged is assigned a QR code that can easily be scanned to check items in or out of the department. Additionally, lost items can be scanned and returned to the correct location.
Conclusion This application and web interface allows assets to be catalogued and loaned. This represents a low cost way of maintaining records of equipment and devices across a large organisation.
