Real-Time Location System (RTLS)

Enhance Your Nurse Call Deployment with RTLS

Real-Time Location System (RTLS) presence for legacy nurse call systems delivers significant improvements in workflow efficiency and bed-level presence awareness.

Insights to drive your continuous improvement initiatives

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.

RTLS benefits

Group Messaging
Nearest Staff Member Notification

Assign nurse call notifications based on proximity to a patient’s room.

Bed-Level Presence & Staff Location

Provide leadership with task completion data to improve operational efficiencies.

Group Messaging
Advanced Activity Reporting

Track rounding, bedside compliance, and shift-handoffs to determine patient needs are met.

Group Messaging
Contact Tracing

Visualize if staff members have been exposed to patients confirmed/suspected to have COVID (or vice versa).

Group Messaging
Patient Tracking

Conduct generalized tracking of patient movement as it relates to discharge, transfer, etc.

Group Messaging
Sentinel Event Reporting

In an adverse patient event, reports can demonstrate staff compliance with protocols, responsiveness, etc.

Ensure fairness and reduce burnout

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.

Decatur Morgan Hospital

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
