Out patient tracking systems

Improving patient safety & experience, staff productivity, and compliance in ophtalmology clinics, orthopaedic hospitals is becoming important in the new normal. The patient experience and safety at the central purpose of any healthcare institution and the deployment of patient tracking systems in healthcare, for small institutions can help bring new insights from an operational perspective. This will certainly enhance productivity, reduce operating expenses and raise the quality of healthcare provided, hospital standards, and competitive advantage of institutions for equipment, workflow, staff productivity tracking using the best technology.

Day 1 – Mapping

Physically measure the deployment area of the outpatient clinic or orthopedic surgery department, mapping into virtual zones as desired. Identify the workflow of the use case, whether it is about patient tracking, surgical workflow or wheelchair tracking

Day 2 – Mapping

Deploying anchors to mark the virtual zones, configuring the gateway, unlocking the iot sensor kit, patient tracking tags, and beacons, powering them with batteries, enabling the frequency of data transmission for iot in healthcare management

Day 3 – Configuration

Walkthrough the virtually mapped regions of the outpatient and inpatient departments, to ensure indoor positioning accuracy, manual testing of zones, temperature & humidity values, and movement of medical devices, enabling intruder detection alerts.

Day 4 – Testing & Go live

Enable user logins, upload the map onto the healthcare platform for shop floor visibility, writing business rules to provide alerts and notifications on zone changes, patient waiting times, crowd management, temperature & humidity alerts

Surgical Workflow Tracking

  • Track medical rounds and staff locations easily
  • Ensure staff availability during emergencies
  • Measure time taken to complete procedures

housekeeping

Housekeeping Management

  • Ensure that staff visits areas to be cleaned 
  • Improve hygiene and patient safety
  • Preventive maintenance tracking

Operation theater surgical workflow measurement matrices

How long did it take to complete the broken arm procedure in the orthopedic surgery department? Where are the operation theatre nurses located? Who cleaned the theatre room today? Where are the nursing interns posted today? Have we done the NABH related inspection today? Where are the new wheelchairs deployed and who are the assigned attendants? Does the pharmacy dispense medicines on time? How many biomedical engineers are working today? 

We have a few medical emergencies today and need to locate key staff. How much are the waiting times for outpatients since the registration process? What is the air quality inside operation theater 2? Questions for which ready answers are not available without manual records and time-consuming number crunching. Our patient tracking starter kit and digital twin solutions for healthcare could be of immense help in improving patient safety, and patient experience, measuring patient wait times.

Patient experience – The patients wait times at the registration counter, how crowded is the place, who are the accompanying paramedical staff, the navigational aspects of moving around the hospital etc.

Nursing department perspective – it is about monitoring the availability of key resources at nursing stations, causality, operation theater, attendance monitoring, ensuring medical rounds, compliance and safety aspects, contact tracing in case of suspected cases of Covid 19, etc.

Maintenance – Preventive maintenance is a key activity for the team to ensure that high-value equipment is maintained regularly and their availability ensured. From wheelchairs to elevators to gensets, portable medical devices, etc. 

Compliance – JCI, NABH had other accreditations have norms on indoor air quality, physical distances, key man safety, inspections, etc that are part of the audit purpose with indoor navigation.

Workflow tracking – How to improve patient experience – Ensuring surgical and operation theatre teamwork. Being at the right place at the right time. Measuring work effectiveness, inspections, repairs, fumigation, housekeeping. Technology for your hospital wayfinding can be integrated

asset

Patient waiting times in ophthalmology clinics, specialty hospitals

The best technology for patient tracking. Solutions are available in many technology flavors that offer a map-based view of objects on the hospital shop floor, where the accuracy varies from 1 meter to 2.5 5 meters and above. Wired and wireless deployment. Some use a Wifi network whereas others run on  Bluetooth mesh or other radio transmission forms. Bluetooth technology is compliant with HL standards and is more widely accepted among wearable manufacturers and medical device companies. Long battery life for the wearable staff tracking tags will help reduce ownership costs. The connected workforce concept can be applied to specialty clinics, and orthopedic hospitals as well, where the key health parameters of medical and nonmedical staff can be monitored on a regular basis. The indoor positioning system cost can easily be recovered through improved productivity of staff. The hospital navigation app can be custom-built for the hospital software India.
