A SOLUTION BUILT WITH YOU IN MIND

ADMINISTRATORS
The American College of Healthcare Executives (ache.org) in its recent survey of CEOs opinion on “Top Issues Confronting Hospitals” discovered that Financial challenges are the top concern. This manifests itself in many ways including increasing patient load and decreasing reimbursement meaning you have to do more without asking for more. TrackStar® delivers real-time location and status of equipment, patients and care givers in easy to use maps and automatic notifications to your team. Now you have the means throughout your enterprise to remove delays, manage equipment budgets, increase staff efficiency and improve safety and compliance.

 
 

OPERATIONS
Vital to successful operations is the availability of clean working equipment for clinical procedures and patient treatment. When clinical needs for resources are satiated you can achieve efficient patient work flow. TrackStar allows optimum management of equipment resources to support nurses and other caregivers, maximizing results and efficient movement of patients throughout your facility.

 
 

NURSING
TrackStar real time situational awareness ensures that nursing resources are focusing on quality of care and not consuming time looking for the patient, equipment and supplies. TrackStar relieves nurses of manually entering patient admissions, transfer and discharges. A TrackStar RFID solution is all about having the right equipment, the right patient and the right skilled care giver in the right place at the right time. Work smarter not harder and allow nurses and other care givers to do what they do best – care for patients.

 
 

FACILITIES
The day to day actions for facilities involve a wide variety of ever growing complex tasks. TrackStar can help facilitate all the necessary routine checks to ensure a safe and comfortable environment exists within the four walls. For example, inspection audits can be tracked for boiler safety, fire extinguisher and fire hose compliance. Trouble tickets for routine repairs such s as touch up painting, etc. can now be managed into one environment that allows you to use bar codes, web forms and RFID tags to mix and match what is best for handling the myriad of tasks associated with maintaining a first class facility.

 
 

ADMISSIONS
TrackStar can facilitate workflow for patient admissions, and discharge leading to better bed utilization. Because TrackStar handles the patient tracking it can automate discharge by having procedures that validate patient departure and automatically alert others such as housekeeping that a room can be cleaned and made ready for the next patient. All without any human intervention for the triggering of these standard routine tasks.

 
 

HOUSEKEEPING & JANITORIAL
Uneven workloads and patient activity lead to wide fluctuation sin room release and subsequent call to action for cleaning and preparation for the next patient. Avoid relying on nursing staff to alert others when the patient has actually left the room due to discharge. Actual room departure times can be tracked using passive RFID so housekeeping is informed within seconds thereby getting a jump on demand for room cleaning.
So many other positive benefits will be available that just do not exist in today’s hospital. For example, Linen washing can be tracked and forecasts for replacement can be made based on actual usage thereby optimizing life span of sheets, etc.

 
 

HOSPITAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS
Today’s 3rd generation passive RFID RTLS systems are cost effective. It is now feasible for nearly all mobile and fixed assets plus staff, patients and important consumables to be managed for optimum use during the entire episode of care. TrackStar’s passive RFID based RTLS eliminates threats of data loss and other health IT complications to your Wi-Fi network. There are no batteries to wear out and false reads caused by a tag being read in multiple rooms is a problem found in active RFID but eliminated in passive RFID. TrackStar has data connectors making it compatible out of the box with all major HIS platforms such as SAP, Oracle and HL7.

 
 

INFECTION & SAFETY
TrackStar provides a complete management system to ensure equipment is calibrated, maintained to OEM standards and sterilized in between patient uses. Infection control officers can rely on TrackSar to minimize containment of infectious diseases for both patients and staff. Reports are available to show who has been in contact with a particular piece of equipment, patient or care giver ensuring rapid quarantine and compliance to best practices for risk management.
