Presentation on RTLS, Real-Time Location Systems which provide real time location, visibility and telemetry data for equipment and personnel
About this event
Webinar participants are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
With day-to-day problems and challenges in healthcare facilities, such as fast spreading infections, loss of inventory, the need for contact tracing etc. location data is the key to improving operational efficiency and processes. RTLS, Real-Time Location System is a system which provides for real time location, visibility and telemetry data for equipment and personnel throughout a facility. It can be provided by leveraging the lighting infrastructure. A real time location system is comprised of badges/tags, a network of readers/sensors/transmitters, and a location engine. The data is sent to a server which provides the end-user real time location information on patients, caregivers, and assets.
