With a constant flow of patients, staff, and visitors, it is not easy to find specific people when needed. Extra man-hours and resources are often devoted just to tracking down staff and waylaid patients in other departments. Not to mention, the extra time spent on manual monitoring of patients’ health status.
With our easy to understand RTLS patient safety system in place, staff receive immediate alerts when patients are in distress, have left a designated area, or even when they push the emergency call button on their RFID tags. Department heads gain the ability to monitor staff movements and hours over the long-term too.
There is much more to the RTLS patient tracking system. It allows you to:
When the RTLS patient flow software is properly installed and running, it tracks the location of and movement of each patient by their RFID tag. The system records exactly when a patient leaves the room and returns, where they head to within the hospital, such as radiology or the intensive care unit, and will track when these patients get doctor's visits. Our system can also be set up to alert staff when a patient is in their room and available for scheduled tests and diagnostics.
Our RFID wrist tags have sensors that allow them to monitor for patient movement, such as sudden falls, too much movement, and lack of movement for prolonged periods of time. When any unwanted events are detected, the system will send an alert to staff. Our alerts are set up to display on tablets and computers containing the software's user interface so multiple staff members receive the message.
