Awarepoint® Real-time Awareness Solutions help assure the right equipment, the right patient and the right skilled staff resources are in the right place at the right time, allowing nurses to do what they do best – care for patients.
Asset management and throughput challenges distract nurses, physicians and other critical caregivers from vital time at the bedside, which leads to decreased care and suboptimal patient outcomes. While an enterprise-wide real-time location system (RTLS) enables hospitals the ability to increase oversight of millions of dollars worth of hospital-owned equipment to maximize financial benefits, the true mission of any hospital is really centered around the ability to provide quality care – and who impacts that more than hospital nurses, physicians and other front-line caregivers?
RTLS ensures critical equipment and resources are in adequate supply and in appropriate locations.
Knowing the location, status and movement of equipment, patients and personnel throughout the hospital can reveal inefficiencies and expose areas to improve.
Nurses, physicians, physical therapists, respiratory therapists, and other caregivers all need reliable access to tools and equipment to safely deliver care. The lack of equipment can risk their safety, the safety of their patients and their licensures. It can also contribute to frustration, overtime and overall staff dissatisfaction. RTLS helps assure the right equipment, the right patient, the right skilled staff resources, is in the right place at the right time, allowing caregivers to focus on patients instead of equipment.
