UK hospital deploys RTLS and workflow software

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 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.

Chief executive of the Trust David Loughton said, "The enterprise-wide implementation of Awarepoint software gives us the ability to care for patients more quickly and provides staff with additional information they need to make decisions."

"Faster treatment and more efficient processes result in better outcomes and lower clinical, administrative, and operational costs," Loughton added.

The Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust provides a range of services for the people of Wolverhampton, the wider Black Country, South Staffordshire, North Worcestershire, and Shropshire.
