Within the Emergency Department and Ambulatory settings of the Intelligent Hospital™ the use of telemetry, vital signs monitoring combined with various identification technologies exhibit the workflows and issues common to these areas as compared to the OR or ICU settings. Patient identification, triage, and the need for rapid clinical data to assess and evaluate rely on the integration of advanced devices and diagnostic information. In these settings time can play a critical role, and the delivery of physiological information from a pre-hospital patient in transit can be vital to positive outcomes. RTLS coupled dashboards monitor patient wait time can be seen by a nurse or physician and provide alerts if times exceed specific guidelines. Management platforms track critical resources and availability of the OR, physicians, beds, patient rooms, and supplies. These RTLS / RFID coupled systems expedite patient processing and throughput, ensuring that time and resources are optimized.
