COVID-19 Countermeasure

TrackStar is fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

ARS has been fighting viruses and hospital acquired infections in some of the nation’s top hospitals for years using TrackStar’s unique Hand-washing Activity Reporting Platform (HARP) module.

TrackStar has monitored and recorded more hand-washing events in hospitals, millions and millions of events to date and counting, more than any other comparable system. Supplying accurate and comprehensive, reporting data, statistics and actionable events in real-time for every person every second of the day across the entire hospital campus.

Always on, always watching and always analyzing threats and dangers caused by unintended non-compliances of hand-hygiene policy so that immediate corrective action can be taken. We’re taking the fight to COVID-19 and all other viruses in hospitals now – call us to see how we can help you take this fight to your hospital.

The World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control, and the Joint Commission unanimously agree that hand hygiene is the single best method for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

No other solution on the market can provide this level of coverage.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented stress on health systems across the nation. For the past 5 years, TrackStar has been deploying technology solutions to address the different clinical needs in such a crisis.

The TrackStar hand hygiene monitoring solution not only encourages compliance from staff, but also detects compliance from vendors, visitors and patient family which mitigates the largest variable in a pandemic scenario.

Hand hygiene compliance is only one of many benefits of the TrackStar platform that can improve a health systems ability react to a crisis like COVID-19. Modules include:

Measuring movement of people, mobile medical equipment and supplies in real time allows for historical review to show patterns. If someone is marked with the virus, TrackStar can look at their past movement history to estimate who else may have been affected. Offering a comprehensive quarantine recommendation based on factors like contact time, recency, etc. with the virus.


This basic feature tracks just about any kind of asset from patient beds to small surgical instruments. Since TrackStar uses “passive” RFID tags, the tags are very small and inexpensive. Data produced by tracking may be used with other information to track sterilization and room cleaning to reduce the spread of infectious conditions such as COVID-19.


Patient satisfaction remains paramount even during a crisis like the COVID-19 pandemic. TrackStar monitors how much time is spent with the patient to ensure adequate caregiver interaction based on their condition.


One of the great benefits of TrackStar is the ability to track the movement of staff. Health systems spend countless hours manually tracking workflows as part of Lean efforts and optimizing the clinical workforce. By tracking staff and patient movements with RFID, we can identify inefficiencies and bottlenecks with no requirement for manual data entry. The staff to patient ratio may be reviewed continuously by clinical leadership to implement optimum staffing levels. As the COVID-19 pandemic evolves, staffing needs will change. TrackStar data is pivotal for keeping on top of workforce demands.


Monitoring patient activity and rehabilitation compliance has always been difficult to do accurately. TrackStar’s algorithms and use of artificial intelligence can provide visibility not only to the patient’s whereabouts, but how they are recovering based on the patient’s conditions and behaviors such as sleeping, eating, and walking. This data can also be used to predict and prevent falls and other serious injury while at the hospital. Monitoring the activity of patients with COVID-19 or other infectious conditions can improve recovery time and reduce the potential spread of infectious disease.

A very important message from ARS founder and CEO

Harold Clampitt

Welcome to this very special page on our website. I am the founder and CEO of ARS. I hope to talk to you and show you TrackStar to demonstrate our Hand-washing Activity Reporting Platform (HARP). We invented HARP many years and millions of hand-washes ago to save lives and make hospitals more effective in their fight against dangerous infections and viruses.

TrackStar is a healthcare breakthrough that lowers the cost of caregiving while increasing the operational efficiency and safety of every person connected to that hospital. TrackStar is installed and working in patient rooms today in top hospitals. We are fighting COVID-19 now and in this time of crisis I want to help you.

HARP is a tool to implement the hand-hygiene recommendations from WHO, CDC, and Joint Commission. These three bodies are unanimous that hand hygiene is mandatory to help stop the spread of viruses such as COVID-19. HARP is a countermeasure that we can deploy quickly in your hospital and we guarantee that it will deliver an immediate benefit to you, ensuring that your hospital is cleaner and safer to everyone involved!

Elizabeth Scott, who co-directs the Center for Hygiene and Health in Home and Community at Simmons University in Boston states: “You can’t necessarily control what you touch. You can’t control who else touched it. But you can look after your own hands”, she says. TrackStar never stops protecting and defending against virus and other Hospital Acquired Infections.

If you run a hospital or need to implement a hand hygiene countermeasure, please contact me or one of my team members. Our expertise and rapid deployment solution may save the lives of those that matter the most to you and to me.
