wayfinding application on smartphone in hospital

How does wayfinding help optimise human flows in hospitals?

Hospitals can sometimes appear as real labyrinths for patients and visitors: many services present in the same place, spread over several floors, with a lot of traffic in the aisles; it is easy to get lost. Moreover, for medical staff, guiding visitors and patients can become a laborious and especially time-consuming task, as the time used to give directions to patients and visitors could be better spent providing care. It is therefore important to guide them as best as possible in order to make their hospital experience more pleasant, but also to limit the risks of delays that can impact the whole activity of the services.

Real-time production monitoring with MES and RTLS

Whilst MES is becoming mainstream in production facilities, there is often a need to input data manually in the MES to be able to make the most out of such system. Integrating RTLS to MES ensure data on where work orders are in real-time and how long they spend in each workstation is automatically and precisely inputted into the MES.

What benefits does RTLS bring to the management of medical equipment?

In addition to sometimes lacking financial resources, the management of medical equipment often represents an obstacle to the hospitals’ optimal functioning. According to a Frost & Sullivan study, an average of 20% of equipment is lost each year, representing additional costs to replace them. Robberies are also sometimes observed. For instance, on December 24th 2020 at Poissy Hospital (Yvelines), a theft of five ultrasound machines with a total value of 500,000 Euros unfortunately took place.

The importance of equipment localisation assigned to Covid cases

As France is facing the third wave of coronavirus, the daily number of cases registered is still growing. On the 19th of April, a total of 2066 infected patients were admitted in French hospitals and 502 new patients in ICU (Intensive Care Units), twice more than the day before. Facing this increase of cases in the hospitals, and despite the “Plan Blanc” deployed in France, doctors are getting more and more worried. In Paris, hospitals are overwhelmed by new cases. Numerous questions are ahead of us: do we have the number of beds to welcome new patients with Covid symptoms and without? Will ICU have enough oxygen equipment for the new cases presenting respiratory distress?
