Real-time location system in healthcare can be used to track medical equipment, patients, and staff. RTLS technology can help hospitals optimize their asset management by identifying the location of medical devices such as infusion pumps, defibrillators, and ventilators. More benefits of using RTLS in healthcare are as follows.
The devices (wristband tags) worn by patients collect real-time data about their temperature, heartrate, and other clinical vital signs.
Staff will be informed immediately once abnormal data is detected by the software system.
Patients who are unwell or in need of assistance can also call for help by clicking the button on the wristband.
Name tags for staff support automatic clock-in and clock-out or function as an entrance card for authorized areas.
Behaviors of staff through rounds are checked, including specific routes, time span, and frequency. Whether they follow hand hygiene directions can also be checked.
Distribution of equipment and medicine is under control, making it easier to locate and use. Their real-time state can also be checked in time.
The newborns look very similar and people tend to mistake them, but our locating system won’t. Each baby wears a safe, comfortable and harmless tag that records their identity and monitors their location.
Invisible electronic fences are deployed in the ward to test if babies with tags are taken out of the safety zone. If so, the locating system will send an alarm immediately.
Babies who wear the locating tag will be located and found as soon as possible, because their movement can be monitored and traced in real time.
When Blueiot AoA anchors are deployed based on the actual needs and the interior or outdoor architecture, and Blueiot or its partner tags are attached to people, vehicles or assets, data will be collected and sent to AoA engine for resolving, and then transformed into a visualized dynamic interface on Blueiot platforms.
The accuracy of BlueIoT real-time location system (RTLS) can stably reach 0.1~0.5m.
It takes just one AoA anchor to interconnect with 500 tags at most within 1 second.
An open ecology allows all kinds of BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) devices to access.
The average battery life of BlueIoT Bluetooth AoA devices can last up to 5 years.
AoA-based RTLS solutions are fairly cost-effective compared with other location solutions.
BlueIoT tags are designed in a wearable and light-weighted way, even smaller than a coin.
