Hand-washing Compliance, Computer Auto Log-on/ Log-off and Patient Fall-detection are Enabled by Real Time Location System (RTLS) with Sub-room Location Accuracy
Date:11/18/2009

Proven in many hospitals, and the favorite of leading RTLS solution providers, Sonitor's Ultrasound identification (USID) technology is now including Wi-Fi to enable the ultimate hospital RTLS experience. New cost efficient technology installs in 5 minutes per location.

Bothell, WA (PRWEB) November 18, 2009 -- One of the many advantages of Sonitor's recently released High Definition Receiver technology is its capability of creating several unique location zones within the same room. It also offers a very simple and non-intrusive five minute per location installation, which includes any required location accuracy fine-tuning for multiple unique locations, such as patient-bed(s), hand sanitation station(s), computers etc., inside the same room.

Sonitor's unique and proven location accuracy performance enables many sub-room location specific RTLS applications beyond asset, patient and workflow visualization that are out of reach by other RTLS or RFID technologies. These applications drive additional ROI through the enabling of automatic alerts or reports related to events such as:

 
  • Caregiver hand-washing compliance. Caregivers will be motivated to sanitize their hands before and after seeing a patient at the bed-side when they know that non-compliance with this rule always will be detected.                                                                                        
  • Patient room or bed-side nurse call request cancellation.                                                                                                    
  • Patient fall-detection. If a patient falls e.g. near their bed or in the bathroom, nearby caregivers can automatically be alerted.                                                                                                                                            
  • Contagious disease contact tracking. Outbreak containment is made possible by identifying who or what have been in contact with a contaminated object and at what time.                                                                                                                    
  • Caregiver computer log-on and log-off. The computer log-on process can be accelerated as it will automatically start by the presence an authorized caregiver. Automatic HIPPA compliance is ensured by automatically logging the caregiver off from the computer when he/she steps back from the computer (screen).
  • Time-stamped and location specific recording of interaction events in the patient care process, such as patient/caregiver or patient/equipment.

"Location accuracy performance is the hallmark of Sonitor's RTLS technology leadership", said Terje "Terry" Aasen, Sonitor Technologies, Inc's CEO. "Combining the High Definition Receiver technology with plug & play installation simplicity, no risk of electromagnetic interference with other electronic equipment, and no LAN bandwidth burden, the Sonitor RTLS technology enables a truly exceptional and very cost-efficient RTLS experience ", Mr. Aasen continued.

Sonitor offers a range of tag solutions designed for various equipment, patient and staff RTLS applications. Sonitor's ultrasound RTLS (USID) is the preferred RTLS technology of many leading hospitals, RTLS software application providers and solution integrators.

About Sonitor Technologies, Inc.
Sonitor Technologies is the developer, manufacturer and supplier of a proprietary ultrasound indoor positioning system (IPS), or real time location system (RTLS), that automatically tracks, without interference and with reliable 100% room-level or better accuracy the real-time location of moveable equipment and people in complex indoor environments, such as hospitals. Sonitor selected airborne ultrasound as the basis for its RTLS technology because of ultrasound's location accuracy and non-interference attributes, which is unlike RFID and infrared based RTLS technologies. Sonitor Technologies' RTLS technology is designed for seamless integration with third party software and integration solutions. Sonitor Technologies was founded in Norway in 1997.
