Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS) can revolutionize healthcare operations by providing accurate and granular data on the location and movement of patients and assets. But not all RTLS solutions are created equal. Many off-the-shelf options come from industries such as logistics or manufacturing and may not provide the necessary functionality or accuracy needed for healthcare settings. That’s why it’s crucial for healthcare providers to choose RTLS solutions that are built specifically for the industry.
For instance, RTLS solutions that are specifically designed for healthcare settings can address the unique challenges faced by healthcare providers. These challenges include managing the movement and location of a large number of patients, staff, and equipment within a complex, multi-floor facility.
Furthermore, RTLS solutions built for healthcare are designed to integrate with existing healthcare information systems, such as electronic health records (EHRs). This integration can provide healthcare providers with a comprehensive view of patient care, including information on the location and movement of patients and equipment.
Moreover, RTLS solutions that are designed for specific hospital departments are tailored to specific needs and can provide better accuracy and functionality compared to building-wide deployments – solutions like MYSPHERA’s ORvital.
ORvital is MYSPHERA’s flagship RTLS solution, designed specifically for surgical settings. And it’s already proven to be a game-changer for several European hospitals. In fact, a scientific paper published by the College of Physicians of the United Kingdom highlighted the success of ORvital in increasing surgical performance by 12%, increasing the number of surgeries by 15%, shortening the starting time of surgeries by 35 minutes, and reducing unexpected surgery prolongations by 50%.
The solution automates processes and launches tasks automatically when certain events happen. For instance, when a patient leaves the operating room, the cleaning team is automatically called to prepare the operating room for the next surgery. This automation saves staff time and ensures that tasks are completed promptly, reducing the risk of delays and complications.
Another powerful feature of ORvital is the dashboards that displays critical information to the right people at the right place. For example, staff can check the status of beds and operating rooms through a TV touch screen. This helps staff quickly and easily access the information they need to make informed decisions and take prompt action.
In conclusion, RTLS solutions built specifically for healthcare can provide healthcare providers with accurate and granular data on the location and movement of patients and equipment within a hospital, which can help them improve patient care, optimize operations, and save lives. By choosing an RTLS solution that is designed for the unique challenges of healthcare settings, healthcare providers can ensure that they are getting the most out of their investment. And with solutions like ORvital from MYSPHERA, healthcare providers can take advantage of the latest technology to transform the way they deliver care.
