The integration of presence (staff location) data with nurse call analytics empowers nurse leaders with in-depth insight into workflows and staffing levels by floor or unit. This bed-level awareness detail enables nurse leaders to improve operational efficiencies within their departments.

Native integrations with leading RTLS technologies

Native integrations with industry-leading RTLS manufacturers (Sonitor, Stanley Healthcare (FKA AeroScout), Centrak, and Midmark (formerly Versus) enable more efficient workflow, room-level presence, and substantial reporting capabilities at a cost-effective price point.

An effective rounding process should translate to a lower volume of patient requests coming into the nurse call system. But without the data to demonstrate this dynamic, nurse leadership is often challenged with establishing whether or not their rounding practices are really working.

This additional level of detail provides nurse leadership with the data to identify and address issues with rounding in real-time.

Staff duress

In the event care team members are in immediate need of assistance or are threatened, they can depress the programmable buttons on any manufacturer’s RTLS/RFID badges.

The associated workflow will route real-time notifications of the event along with location data to the clinical staff within the unit, ancillary team members, security, or anyone else deemed appropriate.

RTLS integration with nurse call provided clinical leadership with the ability to identify gaps in workflow, make corrective actions, and see the impact of those actions over time.

“Our ability to visualize bottlenecks within the reporting allowed our team to take action, leading to increased staff responsiveness and clinical workflow effectiveness.” –– Bryan Vest, MSN, RN Service Line Director Inpatient Nursing
