Reduction of time spent to find stretchers at Queen Elizabeth Hospital through RTLS
Patient management challenges in crowded emergency department
Queen Elizabeth Hospital, one of Hong Kong's busiest emergency departments, was struggling with the challenge of efficiently locating and transporting patients/equipment in a crowded and hectic environment. With a constant influx of patients, it was becoming increasingly difficult for operation assistants to quickly find and transport patients to the right ward.
Real-Time Asset Tracking of stretchers based on BLE technology
Enter ATAL, Ubudu's local partner in Hong Kong renowned for its extensive experience in implementing smart technologies across different sectors, implemented Ubudu's Real Time Location System (RTLS) for stretchers in the Hospital. This involved attaching a unique Bluetooth tag to each stretcher and installing multiple Bluetooth transmitters and receivers throughout the hospital. The RTLS system now enables staff to locate a stretcher with ease, simply by inputting the stretcher number into the computer. With this solution, indoor positioning and real-time asset tracking of the stretchers became a reality, streamlining the process of locating patients/equipment and improving the efficiency of hospital operations.
14h00 of time saved each day thanks to Ubudu RTLS
The impact of the RTLS implementation is substantial. Medical staff can locate stretchers faster, find patients more quickly, and reduce emergency response time. On average, the system saves staff 3 minutes per stretcher search, equating to 840 minutes saved per day based on an average of 280 person-times transported. This extra time allows staff to concentrate on clinical and hospital management, leading to improved patient care and treatment.
Thanks to ATAL's expertise and Ubudu's RTLS solution, Queen Elizabeth Hospital has successfully transformed its emergency operations, providing better and more efficient care to its patients.
