for Your Industry
Healthcare & Life Sciences
Healthcare has reached new levels fueled by nursing shortages, decreasing Medicare & Medicaid, insurance reimbursement, and increased regulations. There is an increase in patients seeking priority medical assistance in the Emergency Departments (ED) and not utilizing healthcare facilities. Millions in revenue are lost each year due to broken, lost, or stolen equipment and proper patient billing.
Zada Partners Healthcare Practice specializes in individual assessment, recommendations and implementation to address the needs and goals of both departmental hospitals and healthcare systems. Our consultation staff offers years of expertise in the clinical setting and working in coordination with Information Technology consultants to provide clients with the best solution.
Our main focus is quickly to assess the current situation and to provide an unbiased, comprehensive facility review, bringing in new and fresh ideas to the management team. This includes distinct solutions for hospital departments, staff satisfaction, patient flow, wait times, and revenue recuperation.
Making sure you have the right patient, medical history, medications and doctor’s orders are critical to providing the right care. RFID tagged Wristbands can be programmed and printed on demand by direct thermal printers. The tags are passive with Read/Write capability. Having critical information stored on the tag will guarantee patients receive correct medication and billings.
To maximize asset utilization from wheel chairs to portable emergency equipment, hospital staff will need to be able to find and rapidly deploy these assets to maintain top quality care. Additionally, most of these assets require maintenance from time to time, based on usage.
RFID tracking will provide the information necessary to ensure that the asset has a current maintenance status, storage location, or last location used. This is especially critical when the equipment can be deployed over your entire facility.
Critical assets will be RFID tagged and an inventory will be maintained. A Check-In/Check-Out process for equipment will be implemented to maintain a complete audit trail. At each point of use, the tags will be read and when appropriate assigned to a patient.
Enhancing the patient experience is a crucial part of operating a healthcare facility. Digital signage provides up-to-date information, as well as a unique way to entertain and inform. By providing targeted information while patients wait, waiting times can feel shorter with improved follow of information to dynamic displays.
Inform - Live and relevant information is used on the screens, improving communication and enhancing the environment. Digital signage can link with existing systems to show waiting times, or be manually controlled by staff. Local news, health advice, institution announcements and other messages can all be shown dynamically.
React – Expect the unexpected, you cannot plan every event. Digital signage allows you the ability to quickly and easily convey your message. Respond to events as they happen and give patients the information that they want to know.
Flow – Use the screens to guide people around the building. Touch screen systems provide an interactive way of looking at the building map and give the user easy directions to find what they’re looking for. The personalized directions can even be printed out as a map to guide them. With healthcare institutions generally being large and unfamiliar to patients, a good way finding system is important.
Languages – Most communities share a variety of languages and sometimes English isn’t a patient’s first language. Digital signage is able to show messages in any language that you may need, so that all patients and visitors can receive the same level and quality of communication.
With digital signage in your healthcare institution, you can react and deliver informative, up-to-date information to the people who need it and enhance the patient experience

Zada Partners is a leader in the field of Sustainability Planning. The trends that we observe with our clients continue to indicate that businesses are adopting sustainable principles as part of their normal business activities. The importance of developing internal sustainability plans and systems is underscored by the fact that many companies have begun requiring their suppliers to have a comprehensive sustainability plan in place, or risk losing the opportunity to continue doing business. The reality is that sustainability planning is no longer optional and should be integrated into the overall strategy of forward-thinking organizations. Comprehensive and properly managed sustainability programs have been proven to reduce certain overhead costs, while increasing marketing opportunities and promoting the company as a steward of the environment.
We offer strategic planning services, executive and management education, sustainability assessments and measurement services, as well as providing system management and oversight services, including the development of carbon emission baselines and improvement measurement systems. We can also assist with a diverse range of additional services, including: greenhouse gas inventory and climate risk assessments, management infrastructure development, life-cycle analysis, environmental reporting and supply chain development and partnerships.

Waste & Recycling
What is the true cost of adding another customer? Is an account profitable or is it better to leave the account to the competition? How is route density? Is a route profitable? Can the bottom line be improved? These are some of the questions we can help answer.
Address and Service Verification Audit: With our custom-developed application we are able to verify the residential and commercial accounts in your area. At the end of our audit you will have an accurate count of addresses being serviced by you in your and your competitors’ county and city. Our reports will provide you a breakdown of different types of dwellings and commercial container density. After our audit you are able to analyze your cost and pricing.
Route Optimization is the process of examining existing routes and working towards reducing the number of routes needed to service customer stops and sequencing those stops in the most efficient means to reduce travel time and miles driven. As transportation costs increase as a result of rising fuel and employee costs, optimizing routes has become a necessity in order to keep these costs in check.
It has been said that customers will more likely stay with a hauler that has rebounded gracefully from a mistake rather than a hauler that never made one. Every time a customer or a prospect interacts with a hauler, a perception is formed. People evaluate how quickly a call is answered, how they are treated, how the request is executed and how the follow up is handled. Every contact is an opportunity to reassure the customer they have made the right choice for a waste partner.
