Search equipment and patient navigation challenges addressed at paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group

In healthcare facilities, the ability to quickly locate equipment and navigate through the hospital is crucial. Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group recognised the importance of improving the location, movement, and management of medical equipment and patients. The hospital was facing the challenge of wasting valuable time and resources searching for equipment, resulting in decreased efficiency and potentially compromising patient care.

In addition, patients often found it challenging to navigate the hospital without getting lost, leading to frustration and anxiety. To address these issues, Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group sought a solution that would be easy to use, cost-effective, and efficient. They needed a system that would work seamlessly with their existing infrastructure and provide an accurate and reliable way to track equipment and help patients navigate the hospital.


Ubudu hybrid RTLS and BLE smart architecture for an efficient equipment tracking and patient wayfinding at Paris Saint Joseph Hospital

After careful consideration, Paris Saint Joseph Hospital selected Ubudu to provide the adequate solution: Ubudu hybrid RTLS with BLE smart architecture. This system uses small wireless BLE Smart Tags on more than 1500 medical and non-medical equipment, such as syringe pumps, wheelchairs, and beds, to locate them with an accuracy of 2-3 metres.

Additionally, the system is designed to be user-friendly for different personas, including stretcher-bearers, nurses, biomedical engineers, and patients. The same infrastructure of wireless BLE beacons is used for equipment localisation and to communicate with a mobile wayfinding app that helps patients navigate the hospital.

This solution is light, versatile, and evolutive, making it cost-effective and easy to integrate with the hospital’s existing infrastructure. The hybrid RTLS system offers Paris Saint Joseph Hospital Group an accurate and reliable way to track equipment and help patients navigate the hospital efficiently.
