Patient Care Technology Systems announced a new software release at the National Symposium on Emergency Department Information Systems today.
The passive tracking software minimizes data entry by hospital staff by automatically tracking the movement of patients and mobile medical equipment using wireless badges worn by patients and staff and sensors placed throughout the department. Locating technologies such as infrared, active RFID, and ultra wideband are utilized. The software integrates rules-based intelligence to communicate and time-stamp key patient milestones such as caregiver interactions and order status and presents this information on electronic spreadsheet and customized map views of the department.
