Real-Time Locator Services

Real-time locating systems (RTLS), allow healthcare facilities to see where patients are, how long they’ve been waiting, and where physicians should go next. This real-time data, can be displayed on electronic white boards and other communication systems, allowing supervisors to adjust resources according to patient volume and demand. RTLS typically involve wireless transponders worn by patients and doctors that communicate with front-end receivers that display patient and doctor status. Benefits of RTLS include:

  • Enhanced movement of staff and patients. Precise locating in large, multi-level healthcare facilities can be crucial in giving care or receiving care.
  • Protect assets and lower equipment waste. With RTLS, administrators can keep track of assets and when they need to be serviced or sterilized. This helps to keep operating costs and redundancy down while keeping safety of the patients as the top priority.
  • Do more with less. Hospitals are data-driven places, and sometimes the amount of time it takes to record all the necessary data is time away from patient care. Tracking patient data like case status, milestones and patient location can provide quick, needed analytics.

EMR/EHR Integration

Electronic medical record (EMR) or Electronic health record (EHR) is the collection of medical records in a digital format. This allows doctors and physicians the ability to access patient records all in one place, simplifying patient care and ensuring information is kept up-to-date. Choosing the right EMR solution is essential to minimizing the disruptions that can be caused by switching from paper to digital records.

Benefits of EHR integration include:

  • Improved patient treatment across the care continuum.
  • Improved care coordination and faster access to records.
  • Practice efficiencies and cost savings through decreased paperwork.
  • Elimination of workflow redundancies.
  • Increase patient participation and transparency.
  • Improved diagnostics and patient outcomes including more accurate prescribing and higher patient satisfaction scores.
