Use cases

A multitude of applications running on one platform

RTLS can improve staff productivity and enhance the patient experience on many levels. Our system is open by design. This enables 3rd party applications to make use of the location data coming from the RTLS platform. The following use cases give an example of the most common applications for hospitals. Of course, there are many more use cases. We are happy to discuss your requirements – just get in touch!

Improve staff productivity and satisfaction

Give your staff time to focus on what really matters: Patient care

In facilities without RTLS, nurses spend an average of 72 minutes per shift searching for equipment. The average equipment utilization rate is below 40 percent, while the share of lost or stolen assets is estimated to be around 10 percent. For this reason, implementing RTLS in your hospital’s infrastructure has a huge impact on overall staff efficiency. Nurses have to spend less time searching equipment and can put all of their effort and focus back on patient care. Existing equipment is used more efficiently and the percentage of lost or stolen assets decreases significantly, RTLS provides hospital operators with one open IoT infrastructure that can work with any software already in use. In addition, it can offer a large number of additional features like space utilization or lighting control that further help reduce operational costs. Find out more about the features of this smart IoT infrastructure system on the webpage of the Siemens company  Enlighted.
