Ensuring the best clinical outcomes is the primary goal of any healthcare provider. Healthcare organizations are using a gamut of clinical information systems to support this objective. Real-Time Technologies provide additional means of assisting clinical staff in delivering the best possible outcome for the patient. Here are just a few use cases where, with the help of technology and redesigned processes, you can provide measurable impact on clinical outcomes:
Leverage your RTLS system to notify clinical staff if patients are approaching at-rest time threshold. Prompting patients to follow a recommended ambulation schedule supports their recovery and helps achieve positive clinical outcomes.
Use RTLS technologies to prompt hourly nurse rounding. Making hourly rounds is a proven tool in driving better clinical outcomes.
Ensuring hand-hygiene compliance is a necessary factor in lowering potential Healthcare -Acquired Infections (HAI). With the help of an RTLS system, you can monitor hand-hygiene events and take necessary steps to warrant full compliance.
When patients are potentially exposed to a contagious disease, it is often hard to determine if they were really in contact with an infected person (or a piece of equipment previously exposed to a person with a transmittable disease). With assistance of real-time locations technologies and an automatically generated contact tracking report, you can identify patients who were exposed and need to get required medication fast to avoid a potentially fatal condition. Contact tracking also helps identify patients who were not exposed and who could otherwise experience adverse effects of a medication regimen. RTLS will eliminate the unnecessary administration of medication.
