Intelligent InSites, Inc., the leading provider of enterprise real-time location systems (RTLS) software helping hospitals improve patient satisfaction and operational performance while supporting multiple RFID and RTLS technologies, has announced a partnership with Proxense to expand the portfolio of RTLS hardware technologies compatible with the Intelligent InSites solution.
“Our ProxNET tracking technology, working in tandem with the InSites RTLS software platform, sets a new standard in collecting real-time location data and transforming that data into meaningful and actionable information,” explained John Giobbi, Chief Executive Officer at Proxense. “We’re pleased to partner with Intelligent InSites on this innovative approach that will help healthcare providers drive efficiency and improve patient care.”
According to Giobbi, with the locating technology from Proxense, hospitals are able to track equipment, patients, and staff at the enterprise-wide level, departmental level, room level, and even bay level. The simple installation of this solution also minimizes capital outlay and disruption for facilities.
“We continue to expand the RFID and RTLS technologies that integrate with the InSites solution, and our customers will appreciate the accuracy and ease-of-implementation offered by the Proxense system,” said Ralf Mehnert-Meland, Director of Developer/OEM Relationships at Intelligent InSites.
The InSites RTLS software platform is built to collect real-time location and condition sensing data from any type of RTLS technology, including infrared/RF, passive RFID, ultrasound, Wi-Fi, and ZigBee, which enables InSites’ customers to use the most appropriate real-time locating hardware to meet their current and future needs. By leveraging this real-time data and InSites’ asset management and patient flow applications, hospitals are able to achieve meaningful and measurable hard-dollar cost savings while improving patient satisfaction and patient care.
Proxense (proxense.com) provides the most accurate proximity technology available for healthcare organizations to track people and assets in real time, and speed clinician access to secure records. The Proxense platform, operating in the 802.15.4 IEEE standard, is a wireless network of stationary sensors, smart mobile devices and a powerful server that gives status reports on clinicians, equipment and patients as they move around a facility. It shortens waiting times through instant, hands-free sign-in/sign-off to workstations, shows when assets are in use or need maintenance, identifies patient locations down to the bay level, and sends alerts when temperature-sensitive equipment needs attention. This multi-purpose, scalable platform is shielded by encrypted security that exceeds HIPAA standards. Proxense proximity technology helps medical facility staff and assets work at their most efficient—so patients get the best care.
