Visilion for healthcare helps staff and management to save time and increase productivity by using smart services based on real-time positioning and analytics.
Visilion for healthcare is a complete, user-friendly Real-Time Location System (RTLS) for positioning and tracking of shared equipment. It displays the equipment’s location on a digital map on a computer, tablet or smartphone. The same tracking system can also be used for locating staff and patients.
Visilion comprises hardware, software and a user-friendly cloud-based application which displays location data in computers, tablets and smartphones.
A small BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) tag is fitted to the equipment. Wi-Fi based observers plugged into regular power outlets pick up tracker signals. These observers transform signals into positioning data which is uploaded to the cloud. Location information about every piece of tagged equipment is automatically displayed in real-time on a digital map.
Employees waste valuable time locating movable equipment and critical assets in the workplace, leading to decreased equipment utilization and an inefficient workflow. Visilion for healthcare improves equipment usage by precisely tracking the position of an object. The system can be used for anything from equipment and medical instruments to patients and staff.
No. The solution includes trackers which you attach to the equipment you want to track, and observers that simply plug into regular power outlets. The trackers communicate with observers that send the information to the cloud. Information about where the equipment is located is presented in a user-friendly way on a screen where staff can easily search for equipment shown on a map. No training is required as the system is so intuitive.
The solution is applicable for all movable equipment in hospitals, such as monitoring devices, patient lifts and special beds.
Hospital professionals spend a lot of time looking for equipment during their working hours. According to a survey conducted by the Nursing Times, more than one third of nurses spend at least an hour during an average hospital shift searching for critical items or equipment. A research project conducted over two years at one of Sweden’s largest university hospitals showed a 63 percent decrease of time spent searching for items or equipment when using Visilion for healthcare.
