How Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) Can Revolutionize Hospitals

Real-time locating systems (RTLS) provide constant awareness of the position and condition of people and equipment within a facility. By tagging patients, staff, and medical devices with small radio frequency identification (RFID) tags or badges, RTLS enables you to monitor their location and status in real-time.

  • Track patients throughout their stay to improve care coordination and reduce wait times. Know when a patient leaves their room or has a test scheduled to avoid delays.

  • Monitor the location and availability of wheelchairs, infusion pumps, and other mobile medical equipment. Reduce time spent searching for assets and ensure equipment is properly cleaned and maintained.

  • Improve staff safety by triggering alerts if a staff member is in a restricted area or if there is unauthorized access. Monitor when staff enter and exit isolation rooms or surgical suites for added protection.

  • Optimize staffing levels and workflows based on the real-time location of patients and staff. Make data-driven decisions to improve productivity and the patient experience.

With enterprise-wide visibility into the status and location of all people and assets, hospitals can streamline operations, strengthen safety protocols, and deliver improved patient-centered care. RTLS provides the insights needed to truly revolutionize your facility.

Key Benefits of RTLS for Hospital Staff Safety

Improved Staff Safety

With RTLS, you gain real-time visibility into the location of all staff members across your facility. This enhanced awareness and monitoring capability allows for rapid response in emergency situations.

Should an incident occur, the RTLS system can immediately identify the precise location of the affected staff member so assistance can be dispatched without delay. RTLS also enables proactive safety mechanisms like duress badges that allow staff to discreetly signal for help if they feel threatened.

By providing location data for both people and assets, RTLS gives hospital administrators the insights needed to optimize staffing levels and workflows. This can help minimize staff fatigue and burnout, reducing the likelihood of errors that compromise patient safety.

RTLS location services extend to facility assets like crash carts, defibrillators, and other critical equipment. Always knowing the real-time location of these life-saving devices allows staff to respond faster in emergencies, which can mean the difference between life and death for patients.

Overall, an RTLS system leads to:

  • Improved emergency response times

  • Increased staff safety through duress signaling and optimized workflows

  • Better allocation and utilization of resources

  • Fewer medical errors caused by overworked or fatigued staff

  • Ultimately, higher quality care and better outcomes for patients

By providing hospital staff with greater awareness, monitoring, and emergency response capabilities, a real-time location system helps revolutionize staff safety and create a better experience for both employees and patients. The benefits of RTLS translate directly to saved time, reduced costs, and lives protected.

Enhancing the Patient Experience With RTLS

With a real-time location system (RTLS) like Transparent Health Locate360, you gain visibility into the location and status of patients, staff, and critical assets. This allows you to optimize operations, enhance safety, and elevate the patient experience.

Enhancing the Patient Experience With RTLS

An RTLS gives you the ability to track patients and their families as they move through your facility. With location data and analytics, you can gain insights into patient flow and wait times, and then make improvements to reduce or eliminate bottlenecks. You may discover that patients frequently get lost trying to find a particular department or that wait times in certain areas are excessively long during peak hours. Armed with this information, you can update signage, improve wayfinding, adjust staffing levels, or redesign spaces to create a smooth and stress-free patient journey.

Locate360 also allows you to set up geofencing, which triggers automatic alerts or actions when a patient, staff member, or asset enters or exits a designated area. For example, you can receive an alert when a patient leaves their room so you can quickly locate them if they have memory issues or are at risk of falling. Geofencing can also be used to automatically log patients in and out of departments, update electronic health records, or alert staff when critical equipment like infusion pumps or wheelchairs are moved to an improper location.

With real-time visibility and geofencing capabilities, you gain a holistic view of what’s happening in your facility at any given moment. This allows you to anticipate patient needs, reduce wait times, prevent delays in care, and head off potential safety issues before they arise. The result is an enhanced patient experience with high satisfaction scores, positive reviews, and increased loyalty. An RTLS is a powerful tool for revolutionizing your hospital’s operations, safety, and patient care.
