As a result of increased hospitalizations, more and more healthcare workers are overwhelmed and exhausted, Intensive Care Units are close to saturated and hospitals are struggling to deal with the unprecedented patient influx.
To meet these challenges, many hospitals are leveraging indoor geolocation solutions (RTLS and IPS) to:
- improve the patient itinerary and experience,
- guarantee the safety of staff and patients,
- optimize staff working time.
For example hospitals can optimize patient flow inside buildings and improve the patient journey simply by geolocating patients and helping them get to their next meeting point quickly and easily.
With RTLS, Healthcare workers are now able to locate patients and equipment in real time, drastically reducing waiting lines and freeing up overcrowded waiting rooms while optimizing staff schedules to limit unnecessary over time.
