Real-time location systems (RTLS) such as AiRISTA Flow’s solutions provide visibility into the location, status, and movement of equipment, personnel, and patients enterprise-wide. The data from an AiRISTA Flow RTLS solution can provide a rich warehouse of information that can be mined and used to improve hospitals’ business processes and enhance their resource utilization. Reaching these objectives in a healthcare environment demands that the RTLS technologies deployed promote co-existence with other hospital infrastructure technologies. This includes the growing variety of network-enabled and wireless medical equipment found in doctors’ offices, ERs, whole hospitals, and even multi-building medical campuses. With AiRISTA Flow, RTLS solutions are quickly and inexpensively deployed to scale without patient care disruption.
AiRISTA Flow’s MONITRAC Wandering Management Solution aims at providing effective solutions for senior citizen elopement. Senior citizen elopement is defined as senior citizens’ ability to leave their assisted living or nursing home without being detected. Elopement is increasingly dangerous because as the size of assisted living/nursing homes continues to grow, the seniors who leave can go undetected for hours before any of the care givers notice they are missing.
Departure Detection and Near Door Notification – Detect events such as resident movement towards exit doors equipped with AiRISTA Flow’s Wi-Fi Proximity/Door sensors.
Emergency Call Button – AiRISTA Flow resident tags are equipped with a button that can be pressed by residents. The button(s) can be configured with custom actions such as nurse call triggers.
Automatic or Remote Door Lock –The AiRISTA Flow Integrated Security Solution allows facilities to automatically lock doors to enforce policies in place for resident safety and security. Staff has the ability to remotely lock and unlock doors from the AiRISTA Flow application console. Electronic keypads are optional.
Alarm, Security, and Phone Systems Integration – In addition to the Door Lock feature, the Integrated Security Solution allows for integration between AiRISTA Flow’s solutions and existing phone systems and alarm security systems.
Quick View Display – AiRISTA Flow’s Quick View displays provide on-screen alerts with the location information of the events and can be installed throughout the facility providing staff with information including floor maps, anywhere in real-time.
Mobile Alerts and Mobile View – Staff can receive resident status updates and alerts as well as viewing the location of residents all on their mobile devices.
AiRISTA Flow Wi-Fi tags equipped with temperature monitoring sensors are used to capture and log refrigeration units’ temperature data. AiRISTA Flow’s wireless Temperature Sensor tags provide continuous readings of the inside temperature at predetermined frequencies with accuracy of up to 0.1 degree. These temperature tags utilize the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure to track and transmit temperature data in real time for storing, processing, and out of range notifications/alerts as provisioned by the hospital to the AiRISTA Flow server.
Hospitals, clinical laboratories, and blood banks are subject to rigorous accreditation processes by the Joint Commission, FDA, CAP, AABB and various other agencies. Increased scrutiny for adherence to strict compliance standards, necessity to ensure safety and enhance quality of care, so the need to increase operational efficiencies has required healthcare providers to re-evaluate their existing processes. AiRISTA Flow’s temperature monitoring solutions simplify organizational processes for logging, monitoring, and tracking environmental data.
Many healthcare providers rely on the nursing lab and pharmacy staff to perform continuous logging and monitoring of environmental data for sensitive stored contents. These manual mechanisms are inherently unreliable, labor intensive, time consuming, and inefficient. Monitoring and logging the temperature, humidity, motion, and other environmental conditions of refrigerators, freezers, and coolers has never been easier with AiRISTA Flow. Reports on environmental conditions, anomalies, and deviations may be generated for any number of monitored storage units with a start and end date in industry standard formats to meet compliance reporting and auditing requirements. Scheduled reports such as monthly log reports can be sent via email automatically. Using advanced wireless network and sensor technologies, AiRISTA Flow offers innovative, robust, and cost-effective environmental condition monitoring solutions to healthcare providers.
AiRISTA Flow’s Wi-Fi RTLS solution based on Active RFID and Wi-Fi technologies can be deployed to provide total patient and personnel visibility in virtually any healthcare environment. The key to increased patient throughput and productivity in various departments in healthcare facilities is to effectively streamline the flow of patients through the continuum of care. Utilizing existing Wi-Fi network infrastructures found in most hospitals, data from patients’ RFID enabled tags are collected by readers/sensors. This data may include patient tracking location, moves within departments, and departure as well as date and time of medical staff visits within the facilities.
Collected data throughout the patients’ journey brings unprecedented visibility into processes and can be used for reporting and billing or interfacing and feeding to external applications. AiRISTA Flow’s intuitive software user interface displays and provides a dynamic and real-time “picture” of the department and the whereabouts of the staff, patients, and equipment.
Patients, medical care personnel, administrative, and maintenance staff are all among the beneficiaries of AiRISTA Flow’s solutions. In addition to enhancing the safety and monitoring of patients, this ability to sense and obtain real-time location information on medical staff, valuable equipment, and supplies brings about tremendous financial and operational benefit.
Hospital-based studies have shown that noncompliance with hand hygiene practices is directly linked with health care-associated infections and has been a major contributor to outbreaks.
Healthcare associated infections affecting millions every year have outlined hospitals’ dire needs for robust and innovative automated systems to capture personnel compliance or breach of institutional hand hygiene protocols.
Material management, nursing staff, distribution, and transport services are among some of the hospital beneficiaries of management process automation and optimization. RTLS solutions from AiRISTA Flow, including track and trace capabilities and business process automation, offer healthcare clients the most comprehensive, enterprise-grade asset tracking solution in the marketplace.
