The software to track patients and assets
Moses Taylor Hospital has completed an implementation of Patient Care Technology Systems’s Amelior EDTracker software to automatically track patients and assets in its 35,000 census emergency department.
The software uses an ultrasonic positioning system from Patient Care Technology Systems’s (PCTS) business partner, Sonitor Technologies. PCTS said that the Amelior EDTracker software is part of its enterprise visibility suite which comprises departmental to facility-wide software services designed to orchestrate patient care through the real-time visualization of patient flow.
PCTS also said that the web-based Amelior tracking software visualizes workflow by automatically identifying the location of people and equipment and the care progression of patients. Location information is generated by integrating with a facility’s choice of real-time locating system including ultrasonic, infrared, radio-frequency, and hybrid technologies.
Edward Roman, chief information and privacy officer at Moses Taylor Hospital, said: We are pleased to have implemented the Amelior EDTracker system. The system has given our caregivers a new level of patient flow management capability through the many ways we can visualize and communicate patient status.
