Location is Everything in RTLS for Healthcare According to New White Paper RTLS white paper specifically underscores why location accuracy, and specifically, sub-room and bed level locationing, should be at the crux of hospital RTLS decision criteria
PITTSBURGH, Aug. 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TeleTracking Technologies, Inc. in association with its real-time locating system division, TeleTracking RTLS, today released a white paper underscoring the top 10 reasons why RTLS location accuracy in healthcare matters. The new whitepaper, Real-Time Locating Systems (RTLS) Location Accuracy and Its Affect on Hospital ROI, describes a variety of healthcare use cases for RTLS where the full return on investment depends on a more specific level of locating accuracy than ever before.
The described RTLS use cases involve asset management, patient tracking and staff locating applications in hospitals. While most healthcare process improvement experts agree that patient tracking and staff locating applications demand this high level of positioning accuracy, there has been some question about how that relates to asset management/equipment tracking applications in hospitals. The white paper specifically addresses why RTLS location accuracy is critical, even for RTLS asset management and includes RTLS in healthcare value discussions in the following areas:
- Staff Utilization and Satisfaction
- Asset Tracking versus Asset Management
- Maximizing RTLS Financial Return on Investment
- Equipment Theft and Loss Reduction
- Increasing Equipment Utilization
- Management of Equipment Par Levels
- Management and Reduction of Rental Equipment Needs
- Asset Management Challenges in the Operating Room (OR)
- Patient Safety Uses, including Improving Order to Care Delivery Time
- RTLS Uses with Patient Billing Reconciliation
