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.
