Realtime Outpatient tracking solutions to measure patient waiting times
Outpatient tracking in clinics can be enabled in case of emergency and ensure they are directed to visit the right department for services, understand queues in various services, and provide emergency support where needed. By defining visual zones in outpatient clinics, we can prevent unauthorized access in restricted zones.
Outpatient queue management
Uncontrolled crowding in the hospital causes headaches for management, besides having an impact on patient experience and safety. Now one can easily monitor the number of patients outside doctors’ cabins, pharmacies, laboratories, etc. If the allowed limit is exceeded, an alert will be sent to the concerned staff for timely interventions.
Reducing patient waiting time in day care surgical departments
Effectively monitoring the outpatient patient waiting times in different surgical departments such as ophthalmology clinics, orthopedics, and cardiology will help in bring operational insights. Alerts will be sent to central command if a predefined patient procedure exceeds the stipulated time, or in a specific department or area for a patient in departments, which is beyond the standard operating procedures, The hospital Management can take necessary actions which will enhance patient safety & experience significantly, to reduce patient waiting time in the emergency department.
Clinic housekeeping monitoring
Ensure housekeeping staff is visiting areas to be cleaned on time using facilities management / Indoor tracking systems. Monitor the complete movement of staff throughout the premise to know unauthorized entry to unassigned departments. A well-managed housekeeping and preventive maintenance tracking system will enhance the patient experience as well.
Reduce theft and equipment misuse in ophthalmology clinics
Using antitheft movement hospital equipment tags, theft can be reduced to a great extent. Whenever a theft attempt occurs, accelerometer triggers and alerts will be generated immediately. This will help management to reduce theft and take necessary actions for the hospital security and operations team.
