RTLS makes nurse call better. Integration of RTLS technology into the CommonPath Nurse Call System creates substantial gains in workflow efficiency, bed-level presence awareness and reporting.

Passive Workflow

Critical Alert has pioneered the use of RTLS to passively close workflow events, eliminating the need for caregivers to manually press buttons on staff stations. Because CommonPath can monitor the credentials of the staff member assigned to a particular badge, it can automatically determine whether or not that staff member’s presence should end the workflow (e.g. only an RN can fulfill a pain med request).

Enhanced Reporting

Integrating RTLS with Critical Alert Nurse Call helps nursing administration gain deeper insights into the workflows and staffing levels by the floor or unit. This bed-level awareness detail allows nurse administration to generate relevant actionable intelligence on the operational efficiencies within their departments.

Substantiate Rounding Compliance

Effective rounding should lower the amount of requests coming into the nurse call system. However, without data to demonstrate this dynamic, nurse leadership is challenged to establish whether or not their rounding practices are truly addressing patient needs.

Asset Tracking

RTLS integration can help identify and track the location of medical devices and
equipment (ex: le/pumps/wheelchairs/etc.) throughout a client facility. Lightweight. small
form-factor IR or ultrasound badges transmit the location of equipment to receivers in
rooms and corridors located throughout the hospital
