The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust, UK, has deployed the first phases of Awarepoint Corporation’s real-time location system (RTLS) to improve patient flow, equipment tracking and hand hygiene compliance.

The hospital has adopted the system in a ward that handles injured and sick patients who also suffer from dementia, to provide staff with crucial data required for patient care.

The Awarepoint Rules Engine will process the RTLS data and other data to help improve patient flow and throughput times, creating a more healing environment.

The Trust has installed the aware360ºSuite which translates real-time data into actionable intelligence.

The software receives location data from the RTLS and additional data from other hospital systems.

The system continuously monitors all the patients and alerts staff whenever specific care is required.
