In healthcare, a Real-Time Location System (RTLS) is a system used to provide immediate or real-time tracking and management of medical equipment, staff and patients within all types of patient care environments. While the technology differs from using location data captured by satellite trilateration, it can be thought of as a type of “indoor GPS” for hospitals. However, more so than just locating assets, accurate locating technology that easily integrates with other Healthcare IT solutions enables facilities to improve workflow, reduce costs and increase clinical quality.
CenTrak’s patented Second Generation Infrared (Gen2IR™) technology delivers certainty-based location with the capability of segmenting spaces into clinically meaningful zones. For clinical applications, zones are typically patient rooms, beds, bays, nursing stations, hallway segments and other relevant workflow areas.
CenTrak's platform delivers rapid location and condition updates capable of capturing interactions between equipment, patients and staff within seconds. The collection of clinical milestones are also facilitated using immediate button presses. CenTrak provides the only Real-Time Location System specifically engineered to handle the speed, precision and rigors of today's healthcare environment.
CenTrak's RTLS is battery-powered, easy to install and can leverage existing Wi-Fi infrastructure. Battery-powered devices are installed in patient care areas without the need to close rooms or deploy special infection prevention measures, resulting in little to no operational downtime.
In addition to being the most accurate hospital asset tracking system, CenTrak's Clinical-Grade Visibility technology is an open location platform that can integrate seamlessly with both existing and new applications including Nurse Call, Electronic Health Records, Capacity Management, Bed Management, Asset Management, Computerised Maintenance Management and Hand Hygiene Compliance.
