Real-Time Location System (RTLS)

Locate, identify and monitor critical mobile hospital equipment

Healthcare facilities battered by the COVID-19 pandemic are struggling to reduce costs and improve productivity. In this environment, improving oversight of mobile clinical assets and hospital equipment is a top priority, particularly for smaller regional providers. In the absence of adequate tools and procedures, hospitals are forced to make additional equipment purchases and rentals, resulting in bloated inventories and extra maintenance and service costs. Untracked assets are easy targets for theft, while misplaced equipment can delay urgent care for patients. On average, hospitals experience an annual shrinkage loss of between 15 percent to 35 percent of total asset costs.

Our Real-Time Location System (RTLS) leverages smart video analytics, geo-fencing and beacons to accurately identify and monitor the location and movement of equipment within a hospital or healthcare facility. The easy-to-deploy solution leverages basic video surveillance equipment and infrastructure, without encroaching on existing hospital information systems. Assets are tagged with low-cost QR codes and beacons, bypassing the need for more expensive RFID-based solutions. Geo-fencing defines zones within a facility so that when an asset such as a mobile ventilator crosses a geo-fenced border, an alert is issued identifying the asset as well as the precise location of the breach. AI-enabled video analytics track assets in motion, as well as identify the type and location of stationary assets, as well as track data on asset utilization and maintenance history.

Benefits of RTLS
