Hospitals are among the most complex venues to navigate. Patients often waste precious time and energy as well as feeling undue stress looking for different services or wards. Visitors may also have trouble finding patients’ rooms. Wayfinding is just one of the indoor location services that make it easy to get to where you need to go even in very large healthcare facilities. Consequently, patients can make it to their appointments independently and on time, giving them peace of mind. Indoor positioning services also reduce waiting room bottlenecks while enabling caregivers to connect with patients faster improving overall efficiency.
Patient safety is a key priority in hospitals. Location based services such as patient tracking enable to locate and keep track of patients quickly and easily reducing potential accidents. This is especially important for more vulnerable patients such as people with Alzheimer’s or younger children. In the event of an emergency situation, patients can be located immediately to deliver urgent care faster and more efficiently. Patients also no longer have to wait needlessly in a waiting room. With patient tracking they are free to move around or take a break in the cafeteria until they receive an alert informing them in real-time that their turn is up. Tracking also allows staff to find their co-workers fast allowing them to focus on delivering the highest quality patient care. Hence, Location based services bring peace of mind to staff, families and the patients themselves.
