A real-time location system provides visibility into the location and use of medical equipment, staff, and patients in the hospital anytime. But it doesn’t have to be limited to the tracking of medical equipment or people. With indoor navigation (blue dot navigation) in the hospital, you can help visitors, patients, and service providers find their way quickly and free up administrative staff.

The day-to-day management of a hospital or care facility presents many challenges. The best possible patient care and optimal and cost-effective staff and resource planning are in constant competition. RTLS plays a crucial role in improving the operational processes in healthcare facilities. In medical emergencies, the ability to quickly locate medical equipment is critical. RTLS in healthcare enables efficient operations, increases patient safety and saves valuable time in life-threatening situations.

Benefits of RTLS in healthcare

Easily navigate from the parking lot directly to the treatment room via app. Help patients, visitors, and service providers find their way around the hospital. Manage your own routes and points of interest (PoIs), explicitly designate paths for people with mobility impairments, and customize the navigation to match your hospital’s corporate identity. Use Favendo’s SDK to integrate navigation into your existing hospital app or place kiosks at key waypoints showing users static routes to their destination. Favendo’s indoor hospital navigation works with Bluetooth Low Energy. Either Bluetooth transmitters or existing WiFi access points with a BLE module can be used as hardware anchor points.

Medical asset tracking leads to better and faster patient care, as well as significant improvements in operational procedures and processes. You can create streamlined and efficient processes by analyzing the numbers from real-time tracking of people and medical assets. With Favendo’s RTLS, you can optimize the routing and utilization of medical equipment. Waiting and idle times are reduced. The RTLS platform easily integrates with an existing Hospital Information System (HIS/ERP) via an open API and is an effective communication tool between management, staff and patients.
