Real Time Location Services
“This has saved so much time that I usually waste trying to find a piece of equipment.” - 8West Staff RN
Caring for even one patient is a constant assemblage of “moving parts.” When something is not where the providers expect, this rotating ecosystem becomes disrupted, and care is correspondingly delayed. Real Time Location Services, or RTLS, is a technology used on the iUnit in order to locate equipment in real-time. Utilizing ultrasound signals and RFID tags, equipment can be identified to its specific location in the nearest room or hallway. This information is displayed on a user-friendly map view, in which users can look on the floor at a glance or specifically search for a specific item.
- Staff can locate any misplaced equipment.
- Staff can see where any piece of equipment is, at any time.
